haha and of course the idea is a 'medical forum'. a democracy of doctors. with representation from different specialities and so on.

informed consent.

and that's the ideal for the future of medicine, for sure.

to provide that. for a greater proportion of people.

which, of course, means a greater proportion of people participating in that proces.. *that* process. not people sitting in the sidelines with no speaking rights or people messing up the process by being given / forced into / insisting on a role that they lack the capacity for.

the whole 'in the beginning doctors had kings or whatever as patients' so informed consent... well... then you have the court. or the harem. it isn't far from there to public health. to maintain the harem or court in the interests of the king. but now you have this thing where why should you believe the doctor is honest about what really is good for the king? maybe the doctor tries to swindle the king. maybe for the kings own good - but maybe not. maybe for the good of the rest of the harem - but maybe not.

this is an unpleasant balance of power where people need to keep tabs on each other and there is much intrigue and double crossing worthy of prime time drama.

a better balance of power would involve greater levels of transpanrecy. honesty. working together. compromise. forum.

in the beginning...

there was...

or will be...

a forum.

which will be swiftly taken over by public health. at which point... there will be such an empty wasteland of a seminar series they will need to start trying to bribe people to attend with free lunches.

for sure.
