THE DOLLAR DANCE

12/28/2020

Certain occupations require an orchestrated ritual to appear more complex than they really are in order to fool the layman. In simple assembly jobs, the factory workers install the same part repetitiously and, thus, have skillfully found a sequence with a minimum number of movements to accomplish this. Construction workers pre-assemble components in locations that are safer to work in and then bring in all the parts on site for final installation. Mailmen walk up to mailboxes and somehow put the addressed mail into the proper receptacle. However, 2 occupations are practicing: law and medicine. The practitioners themselves create a series of choreographed ensembles to baffle their customers and make it appear that their methodology is more complex. In law, the whole sequence is to go to trial, wear down the plaintiff, and get a favorable judgement for their defendant client. As all hours are billable at astronomical rates, the tactic is for both sides to knowingly drag out all the procedures to increase the invoice. In the medical industry, which centers around tiny organic chemistry, tests and more tests are ordered to try and attain an accurate diagnosis. With today’s computers, all that is required is a questionnaire to be filled out by someone who can translate medical jargon to lay people in terms they can understand, a blood test, and a data base from millions of autopsied dead people to attain a quick diagnosis. This will alleviate multiple trips to tens of specialists who have a vague idea with what is wrong with you but want to keep you onboard the money mule. This is why they went to school for so long: trophy spouses in affluent neighborhoods with cool cars. The time delay also increases the chance that your own immune system will figure it out and cure you. They may also inadvertently give you a drug that’ll make you worse or kill you. How can that be? Do they really know what they’re doing? Maybe or not to maybe? That is the question.
