What the Destruction of the Hippocratic Oath Means for Society
Are you one of the 35% who would have said: " I DO NOT COMPLY"?
Today’s post focuses on the article: What the Destruction of the Hippocratic Oath Means for Society
An excerpt of the Declaration of Geneva reads:
“I solemnly pledge to dedicate my life to the service of humanity; the health and well-being of my patient will be my first consideration; I will maintain the utmost respect for human life; I will not permit considerations of age, disease or disability, creed, ethnic origin, gender, nationality, political affiliation, race, sexual orientation, social standing or any other factor to intervene between my duty and my patient; I will not use my medical knowledge to violate human rights and civil liberties, even under threat.”
The Hippocratic Oath and the Declaration of Geneva are considered to be the professional ethics of those who practice medicine. However, why do some medical professionals forget their responsibility to save lives, when they see a patient in urgent need of treatment? Maybe it’s because they have to obey the orders of their superiors and the authorities, so they have to take actions against their own will.
Are you one of the 65% whose obedience to authority in the Milgram experiment would continue to “shock” the subject, or one of the 35% with the moral baseline to REFUSE?
DO NOT COMPLY!
Are you acting autonomously? or have you been Ok with delegating your agency to an authority figure (because you believe this will provide you with immunity for your actions?)
Dr. Yuhong Dong, brings her article home beautifully with this:
When a person develops courage, it is the beginning of a positive level of life energy. Courage and righteousness are very important for maintaining one’s physical and mental health. On a societal level, courage and righteousness are also very important for maintaining a positive social state and the morality of human society.
While frustrating and intimidating, people must all be firm in pursuing and sharing the truth, in standing up for freedom of speech including and especially for the rights of medical doctors to express their medical opinions.
It is only when the morality of human society is maintained that the people living within it will be truly healthy, and human civilization be developed sustainably.
Couldn’t have said it better.

Exactly! I have documented the statements of some of Australia's "top" doctors who have openly violated the Geneva declaration. Appalling, to say the least. The documentation of various instances of such open violations are all scattered across my social media posts (both suspended accounts and current accounts). I wish to put them all together in an article for everyone to see. Thank you for your non-compliance with tyranny and inhumanity, doc.
