In his latest commentary, James Kunstler observes that, “The public at large is restive, eager to get on with the job of deconstructing the matrix of racketeering that adds up to the immiserating culture we live in, a society where health insurance company presidents make $40 million a year while ordinary people lose their homes because a $5,000-deductible health insurance policy doesn’t cover the cost of treating a routine tonsillectomy” (LINK).
The “restive” public “at large” describes the rebirth of populism. Outside of Wall Street, there’s no bigger racketeering entity than the healthcare industry. Obamacare made it worse.

Number 1 in cost, number 37 in quality. That “slippage” is caused by racketeering. And make no mistake, Congress is well-paid by the industry to abide by the industry’s rules.
The system needs to be burned to the ground and re-built, including getting rid of the American Medical Association. Very unlikely to happen. but the way to fight back is to find ways to improve your health without asking the corrupt healthcare system for help. My colleague Rory Hall of The Daily Coin has written a well-researched article which explains low-cost ways treat physical ailments and fight back against Big Pharma. I have personal experience with some of the “health cocktails” he presents and can attest personally that they work. “10,000x More Effective Than Chemotherapy, Reduces Joint Pain, 100x More Effective Than Antibiotics and So Much More…” You can read the entire article here: The Journey To Better Health.
