Since writing the below blog post in 2009 I have developed a clearer sense of the way forward, out of this oppressive political superstructure of conventional left-right politics of the modern era.
Top of the Budget Agenda of all corrupt political systems now laying waste to our civil and human rights across the globe, are the two main items of extremely costly expenditure of the tax payer's money . . . the education and health sectors.
Solutions: join the homeschooling revolution . . . if you can home school, DO it . . . the more people home schooling the more this revolution of Deschooling Society will take root, making the governments' theft of people's hard earned money for the 'education' (aka state controlled brain washing and traumatising) of their children unjustifiable.
Included in this Do it Yourself education revolution is the need to Dehospitalise society.
We do not need 11 years brain washing c/o costly (deadly) medical industrial complex in order to know the basics in self healing, prevention through healthy wholefoods diet, exercise/yoga, the basics of emergency medicine too, bone mending, treating gaping wounds, CPR, midwifery and dentistry.
These ancient arts must be brought out of the authoritarian grip of industrial fascism: medical universities, away into the villages, through grassroots widespread education in the basics of emergency medicine ... to complement our growing autonomy in healthy lifestyle . . . free of Doctored Industrial sector

Questions about the NHS, the alternatives, the lack of alternatives, and other burning questions...that may remain unanswered...
I can't be the only person in the world who is horrified by what both left-wing and right-wing political parties have lumped us with in terms of healthcare, surely?
On the right is the chaotic plethora of private insurance companies - that cover mainly alopathic treatments, that generally ignore natural health methods and that people often opt out of because they don't want to (or can't) pay for it - along with various government-run (or non-government-run) spill-over schemes for the poor that nevertheless leave huge amounts of people with terrifying medical bills if they get 'unlucky'.
On the left you've got 'universal healthcare' which has produced staggeringly high government spending on, again, allopathic treatments care of the Medical Industrial Complex.
A mandatory no-opt-out scheme that extorts vast sums of money from people's taxes for the honour of being handed over to, amongst other undesirables, the pharmaceutical industry. Who in turn, delighted with this business deal of the century, makes billions with the 'industry of disease', using the tax payer as fodder.
This type of government-controlled healthcare system, such as the NHS in the UK or the French 'carte vitale' social security system, is the more frightening, because the deal is this: if you have an accident and need your arm fixed, we'll do it for 'free' (or at least take it from everyone's taxes and generally not bill you for it at the hospital) and with that reassuring promise, we insist that you comply with all other aspects of government-ordained healthcare, including toxic chemo, vaccines, AZT, statins, synthetic hormones, antibiotics, antidepressants, anti-retrovirals, radioactive x-rays and russian-roulette unreliable tests galore.
All the usual poisons and lies that produce the type of mass misdiagnoses and side-effect-induced chronic diseases that will ensure ill-health and doctor-dependance for a lifetime. Looming ever nearer, with France leading the way as example, this type of government-mandated healthcare comes with other government-mandated 'treats' such as vaccine mandates, not to mention endless talk of a dreamy future of HIV-testing mandates, anti-retroviral mandates, chemo mandates, mammogram mandates; basically anything they can get away with mandating, they must mandate you upto the eyeballs. And the more toxic and ineffective the mandated treatment the better.
People say that the NHS used to be good 'before it was taken over by big business', but that doesn't make sense. The NHS has been pumping billions into the allopathic petro-chemical-pharma ideological regime of the Medical Industrial Complex from the start. It was never 'free', it was certainly never free from giant corporations. The carrot dangled under the nose of the 'people' was: all people, regardless of income, will receive treatment if injured or sick. As it has turned out, not everyone is in fact 'treated', and most of those who are 'treated' spend the rest of their lives regretting it.
I can understand how people, faced with two choices, one monstrous system or another, will inevitably opt for one monstrous system or another. What I don't understand is why there don't seem to be more people creating think-tanks and groups to come up with alternatives to these hideous social calamities, both left and right.
How on earth can we create a diversity of systems, grassroots groups, networks, companies, associations, charities - whatever - that will ensure that, on the one hand, if the arm needs fixing, it will get fixed, without financially ruining a person for the rest of their life? And on the other hand, will protect people from politicians and corporations, hungry to gain power over the masses in order to - preferably - monitor, over-medicate, submit to unnecessary, snowballing surgical interventions, with devastating, often deadly results, whilst making them pay for it all through the nose?
How can we find a way to protect all people, regardless of income and nationality, from these threats to our lives, without selling ourselves to the devil, as we have always done, and seem destined to do forever? How can the individual, groups of individuals, reorganise a whole society's, a whole civilisation's perception of social structure in healthcare?
It is not just a question of a change of consciousness, one involving becoming responsible for one's own health, being one's own doctor when dealing with the issue of health and disease, but also of social organisation and economics on a simple, understandable, grassroots level. The moment that financing the fixing-of-the-arm (etc) becomes an intellectually incomprehensible issue only understandable by medics, lawyers and politicians, then the person whose arm gets fixed (or not) loses control not only of their body and life, but also (and for some more importantly) their bank account.
They also lose control of their minds. Because how many people feel qualified to decide where their taxes should be spent when it comes to medical issues? How many people understand virology, open-heart surgery, oncology, gynecology and the rest of it? How many people understand the financing of all those 'ologies' or, rather, medical ideologies?
I haven't met many people at all, no matter how intelligent, educated and wise, who have really considered these issues in depth and who have themselves, personally, become liberated from the coercion and brain-washing of the Medical Industrial Complex.

Recent email to a friend on socialised medicine, the one payer system :
people, not understanding what exactly is being paid for . . . heating these hospitals, paying for hugely expensive machinery that props up fraudulent diagnoses and treatments such as, for just one example of so many, mammogram machines and the ensuing poison for fraudulent diagnoses . . .
and those who pay the taxes for those who do not fit into the workforce are increasingly resentful towards those who understandably prefer to have state hand outs rather than accept a menial job that is even less money
if permaculture is banned by most countries (self build earth domes are forbidden, much legislation mandates integration into the electricity and water board mafias) it is because it teaches that we can be autonomous from state hand outs . . .
but the state does not want this . . . why?
because once you are sucking on the teat of social welfare, the state can literally do whatever it likes to you . . . being on the dole is like having the state living in your bedroom . . . at one point in the UK they would send round inspectors to go through draws to see if your underwear was mixed with the underwear of a member of the opposite sex, in order to figure out if you were fiddling the system . . .
. . . but moreover the doctors . . . the british NHS is pretty much the biggest employer in the country . . . a country of sick, dependent drug addicts . . .
because currently only expert doctors and expert lawyers and politicians are able to tell us, the people, what that cost should be . . . and what that procedure should be . . .
