Another great documentary by James Corbett of corbettreport.com
Profound documentary on the roots of our medical system by James Corbett of the Corbett Report.
The crisis in today’s health care system is deeply rooted in the interwoven history of modern medicine and corporate capitalism. The major groups and forces that shaped the medical system sowed the seeds of the crisis we now face. The medical profession and other medical interest groups each tried to make medicine serve their own economic and social interests. Foundations and other corporate class institutions insisted that medicine serve the needs of “their” corporate capitalist society. The dialectic of their common efforts and their clashes, and the economic and political forces set in motion by their actions, shaped the system as it grew. Out of this history emerged a medical system that poorly serves society’s health needs.
