Lenin determined it was in the best interest of the state if the state controlled medical care. Lenin realized the if the state could say yes or no to health care, the state had a very critical aspect of control over its people; the state was the dictator over life or death. Marxists/Progressives, the followers of the Marxian Doctrine that was implemented in Russia by Lenin, have implemented this draculin like style of health care in several different countries including Great Britain. The idea that it is the state who has final authority over life or death has been a goal of the Marxist/Progressives in the United States for many years. Comrade Obama made huge strides during his reign of terror. We have a short reprieve but make no mistake the dedicated comrades will not quit in their desired quest to place medical questions with bureaucrats as opposed to parents, relatives, and medical personnel.
This is the latest example of the state making medical decisions under a Marxist/Progressive style health care system in Great Britain.
Alfie Evans, a 23-month-old with an undiagnosed degenerative brain condition, may have a second chance at being transferred to a hospital in Italy in an appeals court hearing scheduled for Wednesday afternoon. The Alder Hey hospital in Liverpool removed Alfie from life support Monday but he defied doctor’s predictions and survived six hours after which he was given some water and oxygen. A judge sided with the hospital Tuesday over the wishes of Alfie’s parents who are fighting to move him to Rome for more time and experimental treatment.
The judge ruled that Alfie could not be taken to Italy for further treatment, but that he could potentially be allowed home.
The judge dismissed claims that Alfie's was improving because he was breathing on his own.
"With little, indeed no hesitation, I reject that,” he said. “The brain cannot regenerate itself and there is virtually nothing of his brain left."
According to BBC, “during the hearing at Manchester Civil Justice Centre, he said the best Alfie's parents could hope for was to ‘explore’ the options of removing him from intensive care either to a ward, a hospice or his home.”
When announcing that they were once again appealing the decision, Alfie’s father Tom Evans said, "I'm not giving up because Alfie is breathing away. He is not suffering, he is not struggling, he is fighting.”
Sorry father, under the “Dictatorship of the Proletariat” what you want is unimportant. All parents must remember that the children belong to the state and not the parents as stated by Marx and Lenin.
This is how Socialized Medicine works so they can claim their costs are low. Again, this is an example of the realities of Socialized Medicine in Great Britain, the program that Marxist/Progressives in the United States want to emulate.
American Marxist/Progressives such as Sen. Bernie Sanders like to tout socialized healthcare systems such as Britain's for spending less and covering everybody, but here's a reality check you shouldn't expect to hear in any of his fiery speeches: the British government-run National Health Service has abruptly canceled 50,000 nonemergency surgeries due to overcrowding at hospitals this winter.
Sanders has lamented that the United States "ends up spending almost three times per capita what they do in the UK," which is "guaranteeing healthcare to all people." Yet here is what life is like for those living in the supposedly more humane system, as reported by the Telegraph:
Every hospital in the country has been ordered to cancel all non-urgent surgery until at least February in an unprecedented step by NHS officials.
The instructions on Tuesday night - which will see result in around 50,000 operations being axed - followed claims by senior doctors that patients were being treated in “third world” conditions, as hospital chief executives warned of the worst winter crisis for three decades.
Hospitals are reporting growing chaos, with a spike in winter flu leaving frail patients facing 12-hour waits, and some units running out of corridor space.
You could say to the people of Great Britain, welcome to Cuba, welcome to Venezuela. If we in the Untied States buy into this Marxist/Progressive scheme, we will be saying welcome to Great Britain.
