Government criminalized healthcare to maintain insurance company profitability
Doctors and patients of courage were able to obtain close to 300 pages of information from the government, through the freedom of information act, proving unequivocally that the governments obsession with appeasing the insurance industry, who's only objective is profit, purposely allowed harm to the public, resulting in a drop in life span, us having the worst healthcare system in the world and they arrest doctors in order to enforce these policies. Yet, the insurance industry continues to make record profits.

Chronic pain, which falls under the umbrella of chronic disease of which between 50 million and 100 million Americans suffer from, leads to premature death as highlighted in an article in the October 28, 2021 issue of JAMA. Despite this, the government has allowed increase pain suffering, even death in those with chronic pain to appease the addicts, who not only have control over their addiction, but only constitute a much smaller percentage of the population, about 1.6 %. Chronic pain is a very real entity and must be properly addressed. The drop in life span is partially attributed to increase in over dose deaths, the majority of these people being those who cannot get pain relief from their doctors, so they hit hit the streets. So, in retrospect this 1040% increase overall in addiction of street drugs, with a 28 % increase since 2020 alone, was created by government over reach and judicial and prosecutorial misconduct.

The facts about Covid -19
The fact is that this is a highly infectious, deadly virus with long term consequences for those infected, regardless of survival from previous exposure. Vaccines, although I do advocate them, will not end the pandemic, you must shelter in place. The government is focused on the economy, you have to protect yourself. The ultimate treatment will be a treatment rather than a vaccine. This is in the hand of the insurance industry.

episode 1, the sad truth about our healthcare system, and the opiate crisis in the USA
Healthcare has shifted control, and profiting to private insurers. Slowly throughout the years, financial gain has become an increasing priority. We were once again voted the worst healthcare system of any developed country, yet health insurance industry profited $500 billion dollars in 2020. About 300-500 million went to congress through insurance company lobbyists. Our life span is going down. Recently, the New England Journal of Medicine, (NEJM October 28, 2021) one of the most prestigious and well respected journals in the world commented on how our healthcare system focuses on "getting sick" and profiting off expensive procedures like cardiac procedures and ignores "chronic care" which prevents Americans from getting sick in the first place. As a result of untreated chronic disease, chronic pain develops. Chronic pain itself leads to cardiovascular disease leading to premature death. An article in JAMA (October 2021) confirmed this after a ten year, over one million patients study. Doctors are being thrown in prison for addressing chronic conditions, including chronic pain which lead to this fake "prescription opiate epidemic' which has lead to an increase in abuse of street opiates like heroin and synthetic fentanyl. The government is targeting doctors of color (80%) and those treating under privileged.
