Our $3 Trillion Dysfunctional Medical System - and What You Can Do About It to Protect Your Wallet and Health

Featured in:

The medical system is obscenely expensive; the technology and knowledge on offer amazing. Alas, it can't keep you well.

Introduction

U.S. medical spending, already at $3 trillion, grew 5.5% last year, according to a study cited in The Wall Street Journal (Louise Radnofsky, U.S. Health-Spending Growth Jumped to 5.5% in 2014, WSJ, July 28, 2015). Soon, one of every five dollars spent in the U.S. will be on medical care. One likely consequence: employers will continue investing in wellness programs while offering only high-deductible insurance plans with steep out-of-pocket copays. If you’re going to get sick, and who isn’t, you better be well off.

Ingersoll the Magnificent: Why I Admire His Life and Work So Very Much

Featured in:

Why do I enjoy Robert Green Ingersoll so? I recently was asked this question. This is my response.

Introduction

One of my favorite Ingersoll passages—and I have so many (e.g., nearly everything he wrote or expressed in an oration!) occurs in his moving tribute to his brother Ebon Ingersoll (May 31, 1879):

… Life is a narrow vale between the cold and barren peaks oftwo eternities. We strive in vain to look beyond the heights.

Don Answers a Question About REAL Wellness and Finding Meaning

Featured in:

Happiness does not follow the pursuit of happiness so much as it ensues from doing good works and service to others.

Preface

FISH (fly-replete, in depth of June,
Dawdling away their wat'ry noon)
Ponder deep wisdom, dark or clear,
Each secret fishy hope or fear.
Fish say, they have their Stream and Pond;
But is there anything Beyond?
FishThis life cannot be All, they swear,
For how unpleasant, if it were!
One may not doubt that, somehow, Good
Shall come of Water and of Mud;
And, sure, the reverent eye must see
A Purpose in Liquidity.
We darkly know, by Faith we cry,
The future is not Wholly Dry.

The Absence of Terrestrial Meaning Makes Possible Your Freedom - and Enables WOs and REAL Wellness

Featured in:

Life is without inherent meaning. There is no purpose in your being here. This is truly good news.

Preface

My idea is to get what little happiness you can out of this life. We should enjoy all the happiness that breaks through the clouds of misfortune. Life is poor enough at best. No one should fail to pick up every jewel of joy that can be found in his path. Everyone should be as happy as he can, provided he is not happy at the expense of another, and no person rightly constituted can be happy at the expense of another.
