End Stage Creep

The Witch Doctor appears to be doing nothing very much at the moment.

Not so.

When witches go silent, it means we are thinking – usually because we are deeply perturbed about something.

Soon I will recommence updating the Mid Staffordshire saga and when I do the post will float up to the top of the blog.

In the meantime, The Witch Doctor is reading the material below:

THE UNIVERSAL DECLARATION OF HUMAN RIGHTS

MEDICAL PROFESSIONALS’ ROLE IN TORTURE IN SECRET PRISONS WAS “GROSS BREACH” OF ETHICS, SAYS RED CROSS

MY COUNTRY, APPARENTLY

DOCTORS UNDER HITLER

“In this history of medicine and the medical profession in the Third Reich, Michael Kater examines the career patterns, educational training, professional organization, and political socialization of German physicians under Hitler. His discussion ranges widely, from doctors who participated in Nazi atrocities, to those who actively resisted the regime’s perversion of healing, to the vast majority whose ideology and behavior fell somewhere between the two extremes. He also takes a chilling look at the post-Hitler medical establishment’s problematic relationship to the Nazi past.

Michael M Kater is Distinguished Research Professor of History at the Centre for German and European Studies at York University in Toronto. He is a Guggenheim Fellow and a Fellow of the Royal Society of Canada and has published widely in the area of modern German history.”

No conspiracy.

Just Creep.

Creeping by The Vast Majority.

Leading to the outcome of End Stage Creep.

And now reading this too. Thanks to The Cockroach Catcher for pointing to it.

WHY WE ARE ATTRACTED TO DR HOUSE

“It is instructive to consider how and why autonomy came to be declared, by universal consensus, the predominant principle of medical ethics. It happened after World War II, as a direct result of the Nuremberg Tribunal. During that Tribunal the trials against Nazi doctors revealed heinous behavior – generally involving medical “research” on Jewish prisoners – that exceeded all bounds of civilized activity. It became evident that under some circumstances (circumstances which under the Nazis were extreme but which were by no means unique in human history) individual patients could not rely on the beneficence of society, or the beneficence of the government, or the beneficence of their own doctors to protect them from abuse at the hands of authority. Thusly was the ethical precept which asks patients ultimately to rely on the beneficence of others starkly revealed to be wholly inadequate. The precept of individual autonomy, therefore, won by default.”
