Human Morality and Health Care (an opinionated ramble)

There is something amiss with the human race when money takes precedence over proper health care. Those who cannot afford health insurance do what they can to avoid the clinics; to avoid those disdainful looks from pretentious wielders of the hippocratic oath, who tend to make the financially strapped feel less than human. The oath is losing its meaning (it requires a new physician to swear, upon a number of healing gods, to uphold specific ethical standards). The oath is only a string of words … as money buries morality. The peasants suffer. Royalty smiles down from the glass towers. Knights give the finest protection to their own class.
