It is so odd how often truths about life and unscrupulosity of human nature come out after many years. How many years have people known for instance that human nature, when people get power in particular, can do ruthless practice and play on right to life?
Last week the national press in England had unusual headlines. They said that August was being specifically listed by researchers into medical ethics as the 'killing season' in England. It said untrained junior doctors, richer than many of us can imagine, are let free on ward practices at highest levels, with potential to play on right to life, and see people senselessly, unnecessarily dying, due to their negligence.
You wonder how easy it is to 'twist it', to twist truth, in marginalised cases, and literally put some old people, or those who are socially marginalised, seen as worthless, 'to sleep', without saying it is illegal to take living breathing life from people.
The case of the Stepping Hill hospital is a case in point. We never heard if the latest suspect' in the case of substance poisoning causing deaths last year, has been accused directly and charged. So how long has it been felt in undercover NHS and public culture, that the worst side of human nature can go to getting rid of social isolates in NHS care or in community, and that some individuals can do so with impunity?
How long has it been felt that a disabled person, or someone very moral, should be stigmatised for pointing the finger, and speaking out the truth of what has gone on for years?
Now the press has spoken out about supposedly 'Black Friday' and the killing season. August is listed as the period when junior doctors are set free to malpractice. Yet so much is invested in their training.
I knew a man with mental heatlh problems in Barnsley who they thankfully recently moved I think, who picked up litter, known to a church, and felt for years he was tortured for being innocent and religious. He felt that staff who tortured him were steamier and harder on him in the sexy heat of summer, such as during the August period mentioned in the press. Is this an interesting comparative? Would it be an idea to interview people who are socially left in the background for not wanting sex, to see if they felt the NHS waxed wild and dangerous in general in the summer?
Will anything get done about killer August? Will doctors be strictly regimented and made to stop causation of unnecessary deaths? It has gone on for so long, if people are honest, that reform will be hard. Last weekend news stands where you read print on screen in Doncaster bus interchange said reports of care workers abusing disabled and elderly had massively increased as Care Commission had agreed to more accountability. Care home doors are apparently left open, with innuendo old could be sexually exploited, all degrading self respect. It is a hard job to make a totally good world. People who do unscrupulous things and live fast paced lives get on far better. It is a shame those wanting better who are really sickened are in such a distinct minority.
There are not enough effective coalition groups to speak out about the truth of playing on right to life. If there were we would have lived in a far fairer and safer world.,and not be reading these horrific press reports about the assumed truths of Black Friday in August.....
