The two main points that I took out of Michael Moore’s movie is that
1. We handed over a Trillion on the military because we were scared. We handed over nearly a trillion on the bailout because we were scared.
We are NOT handing out what we need on healthcare because we are NOT able able to make the same case for fear…. it is not as frightening and immediate as a military attack or economic fears. Yet, the reality is FAR worse. The calm nature of the physician, the measured tones, have made us losers in in political realm where fear of disaster and failure is what makes people move.
We MUST sell healthcare reform as 1. A military attack on the country. 2.The GREATEST source of economic ruin for the country.
Then people will move.
Second point of Michael Moore’s movie.
The BEST and BRIGHTEST have been kidnapped into the Finance industry, NOT the cure of disease. This is a central theme of “Routine Miracles” . Time to get the BEST back into medicine.
