Bioethical Brainwashing Bushwhacks the Unwary
Kaiser Permanente’s Bioethics Committee programs unwary patients to believe that their personal “values” require their duty to die. Kaiser’s bioethical brainwashing scheme tricks patients into rejecting life-sustaining treatment in their advance medical care directives. Kaiser is President Obama’s model for government-run health care.
Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, President Obama’s bioethics overseer, invented Kaiser’s “values-based” DEATH PANEL over twenty years ago. His “illness scenarios” model instructs patients to “imagine themselves incompetent with a poor prognosis.” Dr. Emanuel found that 70% of these patients reject life-sustaining treatment after a 15-minute end of life counseling session with their doctor.
Dr. Emanuel’s strategy is rooted in Herman Kahn’s “mind experiments.” Kahn invented “scenario planning” during the Cold War to predict nuclear war deaths. Kahn coined the term “megadeath.” Kahn is considered a role model for ”Dr. Strangelove.”
DEATH PANEL “VALUES” DUTY TO DIE
Health Fraud Analytics™ investigators discovered how a real life death panel worked at Kaiser Permanente by attending an end of life counseling class. Kaiser’s death panel used a bait and switch scam.
Kaiser’s Bioethics Committee brochure lured unwary patients into a lethal trap. The Committee reassured patients that “bioethics means applying general moral principles to medicine and health care.” The Committee advertised that this medical morality class explained what a Durable Power of Attorney for Health Care is and why patients need to have it. Patients tend to trust doctors and nurses, who present themselves as morality experts. (Attachment 1)
Kaiser’s advertisement concealed that the real purpose of this class was to use “scenarios” to program patients to “value” their duty to die, when they are in a “state” in which life is “intolerable.” After patients were programmed to believe that they “value” the duty to die, they were instructed to document their coerced rejection of life-sustaining treatment in their Durable Power of Attorney for Health Care (DPAHC).
Kaiser’s Bioethics Committee Chairperson distributed two forms based on Dr. Emanuel’s hypothetical “illness scenarios.” These forms used trick questions to coerce patients to reject life-sustaining treatment “choices,” when they reach “intolerable” life “states.”
Kaiser’s “VALUES ASSESSMENT SURVEY”
HMO propaganda programmed patients to reject life by an emotional assault on their personal “values.” When patients are emotional, they are not rational. Overly simplistic “scenarios” steer emotional patients toward rejecting life by intentionally eliminating life-sustaining alternative “scenarios.”
At this class, Kaiser’s Bioethics Committee Chairperson distributed a biased “VALUES ASSESSMENT SURVEY” form to patients. The HMO’s survey programed patients to reject treatment and life support through a series of negatively-biased questions regarding their health “values.”
Kaiser’s VALUES ASSESSMENT SURVEY set forth “intolerable” end of life “states,” which program patients to reject life-sustaining treatment “choices.” For example, if patients “value” the “states” of self-reliance and controlled pain, they could not “tolerate” the “states” of uncontrolled pain and being a “burden” to their family.
