I liked your re-visit to the nurses. It is a grim reminder we must look in the rearview mirror to remember the wreckage intentionally caused. Your reference to nurses dancing and twerking, while patients died alone and by gross medical malpractice, brought to mind the documentary, "The Killing Nurses of the Third Reich." The title is a misnomer as the killing of undesirables started well before Hitler's rise. Nurses gleefully killed patients believing they were doing the right thing. Their belief was rooted in the Eugenics religion, an export from the US -for which Germany paid us back with Marcuse and his ilk.

As you eloquently argue, we are the product to "be sold." It is why officials ignore constituents, especially in Dem strongholds. We are the resource to be exploited, the forest to be indiscriminately razed, the water polluted, and the air left unbreathable.

Couldn’t have said it any better. A well thought out, but frightening piece.

not to be too negative, but you are a few years late on this warmed-over dancing nurses piece, I didn't read past the first two paragraphs

this would have great back then, but I think we are all sick of hearing about it now, or at least I am
