Only in the US we will have a law for health care segregation. Any health care worker not willing to assist because of conscious objection, mostly by fear, will gladly step asside. No matter what the cause. It sounds good but in reality, its BS! If enough in a ward believes they are in danger, who is to tell them to work, when nobody else is able to fill in as a replacement? Is it your fault? Well it sure looks like it! So many broken things being created by lack of hind sight by law makers, just because many of them jump to conclusions or work fear over facts.

Consciousness evaluated
Help now highly underated
Health is now segragated

Justification personalized
Lives now marginalized
An ignored word to the wise

The wicked don't sleep
Hatered runs deep
The lies that reap

A great war is near
Built by great fear
While nobody sheds a tear

In Australia there’s a box on virtually every medical form “are you an Aboriginal or Torres straight islander?”

I always found that extremely sinister, for some reason. Seems a tad discriminatory, no matter the official reason…

The workers are the scapegoats of the governors and the carriers of their burdens. Like Atlas heaving the world over his shoulders, except the slavemaster (modern day term: “boss”) is sitting on top.

Succinct poem. clear message. Well said. All the best Sluggy.

Thanks! Yes, I have noted some Austrailian issues, but on occasion may include with my thoughts. The Aboriginals have been greatly marginalized, and like most non natives, being imagrants, have tried to be very much a part of Australia. Only to be ignored and repressed. The African Americans here have had more recognition than they are portrayed in recent news. But I am on a tangent to the point of the matter. Oddly enough as you have pointed out. No matter how much politically we try to make all equal, the dominant policy will regress back to slavery by segregation by other means, whether it is opposition or to justify all are being treated fairly. We have a similar box scheme, its called affirmative action. It has troubled me since a little boy. Boxes for every nationality on a form. Oddly enough when you try to explain why its racist, the minorities attack and say your rmoving rights. None of the boxes will effect how one is being assisted. Yet unlike UK health reform, there is a box that makes more disparity than any racial box. That box is insurance. Even hard working middle class find that box a bit limiting. Though the big issue is everyone wants utopia. UK health is not a utopia, there still is disparity, mostly because minor treatment may be turned away as non issue, especially under Corona. To me its almost equal between US and UK for treatment. We get more in our pocket, yet cant manage our expenses. UK keeps more of your money to manage your life. Seems like more UK people are not so greedy or spoiled by wealth so to speak, and are able to manage some sort of unity when told this is what is to be done. Sort of accepting what is will be. Unfortunately Austrians are more defined by providences, because of great distsnces between them, more like the States. Thus upheaval when change can't be justified to them locally. I wonder if what we do because of consciousness laws for medical, will come into place in Australia, to quash the opposition to vaccinations. Mostly laws are to control while giving some feeling of protection. Changing what we have relied on as a given by medical oath, into the care workers option. If anyone with a brain would see the point, they would say hell no! Just think if police were given the option to walk away from any harmful altercation. Once this is set in place its hard to change or remove. Gosh, went on and on. Ha!

(I mentioned Australia because, don’t worry, we’ll be catching up to the US and the UK in terms of dystopian reform policies in no time.
