Reality science fiction (which I have just coined as a name), is unimagined economic and social forces as devastating as our “Shock And Awe” campaign in Iraq, that are invisible to the naked eye. It is tornado like forces that others see as if they were late fall winds whisking leaves from trees.
As I live outside the box, I see the tornadoes before those inside and so decided to show others the evidence and offer them an opportunity to build and Arc with me and others like me. So instead of writing Sci-Fi for the last 8 months I have been a researcher, writer and director, on stage, creating Sci-Fi Reality Theater performance (one way too real but too sci-fi to be my America.).
As many of you know, I have not posted a lot lately or completed any new sci-fi publication as books. As some of you know, I am also and eye doctor who has taken a unique challenge in dealing with the impact of ObamaCare on our health care system.
I have led the founding of the NYIPA, a group of doctors forming an Independent Practice Association, IPA. An IPA could be defined as a tool that allows doctors to organize as a single groups that provides medical services to buyers. In my vision it is a tool to help doctors survive the premeditated destruction of all they have worked to achieve, by the corruption in Washington that has turned America from a Republic into an Oligarchy. In so doing, I have written miles of text that describes this Reality Sci-Fi Theater as it is being enacted on the streets of our nation.
Here is one of my favorite essays, Peering Over The Professional Precipice, much of which I stole (with permission) from my colleagues in Ct.
What is the Sci-Fi like reality behind ObamaCare that makes it worth such a diversion from my favorite topic of traditional Sci-Fi? It is the mass cultural hypnosis that Washington has been able to achieve to get our countrymen to allow a financial give away, much like TARP, to corporations that have underfunded health care and over-funded CEOs. It is the ability of an Oligarchy to siphon the blood of its civilians while promising weigh loss with no need for dieting.
One of the key features of this charade is EMR (electronic medical records). Emr is promised as the solution to health care’s inefficiency. You know what it is as it has replaced your doctor’s attention at all your medical visits over the last few years. It is why you doctor does not know your face when you visit him or her, but rather a screen full of data that is supposed to be you. In Sci-Fi EMR will work and in reality it is a give away to insurance companies (who elect the president and congress) used to turn a doctor’s patient time into free data entry and secretarial services for Insurance companies.
The devastating effect of EMR and its accompanying accountable care (ObamaCare) has inspired my very short story about EMR Terrorism (posted here on a FaceBook group I started), written for doctors and others, to help them understand the impact of one missile, EMR, in the Shock and Awe campaign of OmbaCare’s reality show.
For those of you who are curious to read it and don’t love FaceBook here is a link to SmashWords for a free copy of ‘How To Kill Your Doctor For Fun And Profit.” So you see I have been writing and I did publish a short story.
This short story is just the beginning of a series on how Bill And Hilary’s Great Adventure, has been recast in the garbs of ObamaCare with the magical pixie dust of EMR to make it seem different. Make no mistake about it, the tornado you take for a wind, is the rebirth of the failed HMO’s and Capitated health care that died a slow death while destroying the lives of many people back in the ’90s.
So…. this has been my diversion, Sci-Fi Reality Theater.
