On Medication

There is a distaste toward medication. This stems from a belief in individual power. If individual power leads to true healing, then we must blame the need to pull through and force oneself into healthy thoughts and aftermath.

Many of the contras who sit against medication profess a firm trust in homeopathy. Science is there to cost us. Doctors -- they don't speak plainly -- many times over-medicate: instead of addressing the nearest need, we should attend to the entire body. Yet there is no whole body medication, no pill to crush up and return to your whole self again.

However, homeopathy is a decentralized medical alternative: there are no authorities. I wonder if this is why it appeals to freedom-loving foes of big government. You may shop freely and have a good conscience that the correct product is chosen by you and only you. You triumph. You, the center of individual power.
