Greece’s ‘Rescue’: Political Medicine and ‘The Rest of Us’

 Ida B. Wells:  Doc and I will cover the drastic decline of health care in the Greek population resulting from the European Union’s ‘rescue.’   I will report on economists who say that this ‘rescue’ was for the good of “the rest of us.”  And Doc reveals catastrophes in the Greek population resulting from that ‘rescue.’

 Dr. Ad Versery:  Medical officials in Greece report that the health care system there is collapsing.  Dr. Reveka Papadopoulos, head of Médecins sans Frontières Greece, says that Greek’s medical and social services are “under very severe strain, if not in a state of breakdown. . . . a system that cannot cope.”

 She points out that Europe’s demand for “blind” budget cuts brought a 40% reduction for hospital funding, while at the same time there was a 24% increase in demand for hospital services.

 Papadopoulos told John Henley of Britain’s : “The extraordinary increase in HIV/Aids among drug users, due largely to the suspension or cancellation of free needle exchange program, has been accompanied by a 52% increase in the general population.” The Guardian story is accompanied with a photo showing “doctors, nurses and paramedics clashing with police . . . as a protest against cuts.”

 Citing soaring rates of HIV/Aids, malaria, tuberculosis, Nile fever, and other communicable diseases, Papadopoulos adds: “This is something we are used to seeing in sub-Saharan Africa, not Europe.”

 She says that such sharp increases in communicable diseases are indications of the coming breakdown:  “The simple fact of the reappearance of malaria, with 100-odd cases in southern Greece last year and 20 to 30 more elsewhere, shows barriers to healthcare access have risen.  Malaria is treatable, it shouldn’t spread if the system is working.”

 In his article, “Greece’s Health System Faces Collapse,” Robert Stevens asserts:  “The austerity measures being forced onto the Greek population by the . . . government are literally killing people.”

 Alvin Conway believes that the Greek decline signals a coming collapse of Western civilization:  “It’s a sobering lesson for the U.S. and the rest of the Western world when the day of reckoning finally comes.”  Conway writes in “Extinction Protocol 2012 and Beyond”:  “It took millennia to build civilizations on this planet but we will watch them unravel over the span of a few years.”

 Ida B. Wells, IV:  Even used Christian Bibles tell us:  “It is better to trust in The LORD than to put confidence in princes (Psalms 118:9).”  Because Europe’s ruling class has forced this ‘rescue’ on Greece, the blood of many will be on their hands in the coming judgment day.  Hopefully, some citizens in Greece are keeping their trust in The LORD to help them to survive this death watch!
