As our country moves from being a nation of small business owners to a nation of employees, we are losing an important avenue for understanding the benefits and benevolence of capitalism. This trend makes it all the more important to speak up on the morality of profits, private property and voluntary exchange to counter the loss of the direct, concrete experience gained by self-employment.
Physicians are no different. As the quality and integrity of our medical care depends upon free and independent thinking, in medicine, it's even more directly a matter of life or death.
This ribbon is to raise awareness of the recent damage our government has caused to health care freedom and the integrity of the doctor-patient relationship. Under the new law (PPACA), physicians will be compelled to base their advice and treatment on politically determined goals, even when in conflict with the best interest of their individual patients.
