Author sounds bitter and blinkered.

Yeah. He’s probably a failed artist or writer or something like that. Can’t succeed in the world so he makes out it’s the world’s fault. Loser.

Ah I didn't mean all of that... But the bit about doctors not wanting to help. I know a few and that certainly isn't true for all.

It’s okay, I’m the author. :)

The bit you’re talking about is:-
me wrote:If you are a doctor your priority is to sell drugs, to prevent people from healing (or understanding) their own bodies and to get them back to work.
I do not mention what doctors want. There are, as you say, ‘doctors who want to help’ (mine does), but they are part of a medical profession (and a wider system), which is, literally, sickening (iatrogenic). Too complex to explain fully now, but if you’re interested you can come back to my blog in a about a week when I’ll be putting up a post on this very subject. Meantime, see Ivan Illich, Medical Nemesis, a core text.

Any other specific objections to my piece? Happy to address them — although I’m a bit busy right now, so they might be just sketches.

Good will to you,

Darren

Ah you're the author. No no more specific stuff, I just quickly went through it. I'll try and read more of it later on when it suits.

Welcome to the forums and thanks for letting us know about your work.
