What's Wrong with Healthcare on the perils of collective opinion:
I truly believe the biggest threat to law and order and good government is PUBLIC OPINION.Which might explain the $9.5 million that Health Canada recently spent to increase public awareness of the term "primary health care". The citizens must be sure to understand what tier they are entitled to. See Fighting for Taxpayers for the sordid details.
Back to Al of What's Wrong with Healthcare:
On a global scale, the various terrorist groups of the Middle East learned a long time ago there was only one thing that democratically elected leaders feared, and that was public opinion. And they quickly learned how to use it. Unencumbered by the usual games and frailties of political correctness, truth, negotiating in good faith, fairness, peace on earth, etc. they simply played to our sympathies and portrayed themselves as the victims, continually using our media and freedom of speech, to sway public opinion in their favor. In their country, the media has been strictly controlled, and only the messages they wished the public to hear were ever heard. They have used public opinion throughout their nations and, indeed the world as a whole, for recruitment of suicide bombers, raising money, preventing aggression from other nations, and even managed to paralyze the United Nations and the European Union (and the Canadian NDP party).
