Slum Care: The Curse of Socialised Healthcare in Australia
In today’s news this 25th November 2022 West Australian nurses are on strike protesting outside parliament house. Thousands of nurses defied a WA Industrial Relations Commission order not to strike making the protest “illegal”.
According to Freedom Media WA, Senior Commissioner Rachel Cosentino issued a direction that any taxi or Uber driver ferrying a nurse to the protest would face sanctions. WA Premier, Mark McGowan said the nurses were engaged in “unlawful activity.” Draconian to say the least, but unsurprising in communist Australia.
It is amusing to me that the WA government expects anybody to care what it defines as “illegal”. It is hard for citizens to respect the whimsical decrees of a criminal cartel, even more so when times are tough. But there is also irony in the fact that these employees of PharmaGov who helped administer the vaccine tyranny are now themselves chewed up and spit out by the establishment they were loyal to. The government doesn’t care about health.
These nurses want a 5% pay rise and a new system of nurse to patient ratios. You can watch the rest of their complaints on the protest LiveStream.
It isn’t hard to see why they want change. The “healthcare” system is in shambles from what I gather. I don’t really use it, but we’re told there are too many sick people and not enough staff and beds to care for patients.
There is ambulance ramping. Patients are left in corridors for days waiting for a bed. There are long queues for surgery. The stress on nursing staff must be significant. And I would guess the fall out from the suicide injections aren’t helping.
But here is where I part ways and become less sympathetic for the plight of these nurses. Despite the difficult circumstances facing healthcare workers in Western Australia there is something far more disturbing to me about thousands of people screaming at the government to fix the “healthcare” system.
Why is that? Because it reveals a group of people and a society generally entrenched and fixated upon the idealistic fantasy of socialism to provide a decent healthcare system. And screaming for more socialism won’t fix socialism.
It is precisely because PharmaGov runs the healthcare system on behalf of its monopolistic corporate overlords that the health system is burdensome, ineffective and a down right curse on all Australians.
It is time to quit this system already. Throwing more money at an ineffective greedy monopoly is only going to magnify the pain it inflicts on people. Australia’s socialist “healthcare” is slum care - because slum level care is all socialism is ever good at providing.
Allow me to illustrate the problem. During the WA election I visited a coffee shop. There faced with Mark McGowan’s face in the daily paper I commented how much I disliked his politics to the staff because he represents a socialist Australia. The young lady behind the counter, confused and offended asked why I didn’t like socialism. “Don’t you want free healthcare?”, she retorted.
No! I definitely don’t want free healthcare!
Firstly, slum care in Australia isn’t free. In a recent tax return I paid over $2000 in Medicare levies. My wife likewise paid over $1000. That is over $3000 of our annual income contributing toward the slum care system on top of exorbitant rates of income taxation.
Now how many times did any of us use that system we helped pay for that year? Not once. In fact we almost never use it, not unless we require a doctor’s certificate. Over the past ten years, we have turned over $30,000+ for maybe four $200 trips to the doctor for this version of healthcare. It would have been better for me to pay the $800 as and when I require this type of service - a whopping saving of $29,200!
So have I gone without healthcare for the last 10 years? Absolutely not. We have had to pay extra on top of this forced mandatory contribution of $30,000 to receive the kind of healthcare we actually want.
Let’s say among other things, your version of healthcare looks like mine:
1. Yearly treatments and testing from a biological dentist.
2. A Nutritionist to test for blood chemistry health markers.
3. Dietary Supplements.
4. Vitamin Injections.
5. A Gym Membership.
6. Massage and Sauna.
This kind of healthcare isn’t subsidized by the socialist slum care system. This means I pay twice!
The socialist system defines “healthcare” for everybody. It equalizes and mandates a system right for everybody from the top down and the monster it creates is something operating at the lowest common denominator for a serf class driven by monopolistic corporations selectively chosen to deliver this type of “care” who can then profit massively off the misery of those forced to participate.
An alternative market driven healthcare system would promote continual improvement through natural competition. In that system eventually only the healthcare providers producing quality healthcare can survive in the market.
Let’s say you have cancer. There is a practitioner down the road who is known for curing people using a combination of scientific and traditional techniques. You know a few people in the neighborhood who have recommended him and they are still alive and well 10 years later and are following his principles.
Meanwhile you have a number of relatives who were referred to their oncologist by their local GP. A few weeks later their hair fell out, they look about 30 years older and have a life expectancy of maybe 5 years.
Which healthcare practitioner would you visit? Not the first one in socialist Australia because he isn’t allowed to operate! At least not out in the open. That version of healthcare is shutdown by the healthcare authorities in Australia whose job it is to prop up the socialistic slum care system that is so obviously falling apart.
Now I could have things backwards in regards to successful cancer treatments, unlikely, but it really doesn’t matter does it? Because in a genuine market driven healthcare system eventually it is going to be obvious to most people where you go to get real help for cancer. The quality healthcare providers will be producing undeniable results. Their Google reviews will be 5 stars, your neighbors will be raving about the experience. The practice manager will be rolling in cash and his nurses are well paid and happy!
Meanwhile the providers with patients still waiting in the hallway, hairless and irradiated from toxic IV bags dripping into their forearm or clutching their chest from a vaccine induced lung clot, their online reviews aren’t so good and their workers are on strike and protesting! Can you see it now?
In a market driven healthcare system profit is tied to results. In a socialist healthcare system profit is maintained by protecting the monopoly and eliminating the competition. This means our socialist healthcare allows quackery to thrive by masquerading as “care” and nobody knows any different. It has little motivation to improve. Innovations are suppressed and cures are looked upon with suspicion. Without competition profit is maximized by prolonging sickness unto death.
That old saying, “There is no money in healthy people, nor dead people, only sick people” becomes true only in a system of socialised medical healthcare propped up by government regulation and taxation!
Therefore our system of health exists to keep Australians in a perpetual state of illness to be fed upon by a vulturous racketeering pharmaceutical gang of thieves with an ever increasing array of snake oil treatments aimed at relieving symptoms and never getting at a root cause.
Sadly a market driven healthcare system does not exist in any true form. Certainly not in America either. The American establishment have created the ultimate tyrannical medical monopoly on the planet and it extends to Australia under the guise of “free healthcare.”
Australia’s “free” healthcare system is a protection racket for corporate medical quackery. Slum care for the slave class! The system eliminates freedom of choice, destroys healthcare market opportunities and drastically increases the cost of accessing genuine healthcare for everybody!
That is ultimately why the nurses are overworked. That is why the ambulances are ramping. That is why people wait in hallways for days just waiting for space to lie down.
…And that is why I don’t want “free” healthcare in Australia!
