Do Not Get Sick

Do Not Get Sick

Traveling these next few days. But I still have time to bring a warning. Do not get sick, my dear reader, or if you do get sick, seek out a homeopath.

This was from 2021 at Columbia, welcoming the new class, and allowing them to write their own oath.

It swears to uphold Woke & DIE. As a service to mankind, I reprint the full oath (found here). The bolding is original.

Class of 2025 Oath

“We enter the profession of medicine with appreciation for the opportunity to build on the scientific and humanistic achievements of the past. We also recognize the acts and systems of oppression effected in the name of medicine. We take this oath of service to begin building a future grounded in truth, restoration, and equity to fulfill medicine’s capacity to liberate.

I make this pledge to myself, my classmates and future colleagues, and the individuals and communities I will serve.

I acknowledge that my role is to inform my patients, accompany them in moments of wellness and vulnerability, and respect their privacy and autonomy while empowering them to flourish.

I promise to take care of my future patients by engaging in dialogue, listening to their lived experience, and tailoring my recommendations to their unique circumstances.

I commit to honor the relationship formed between patient and physician by maintaining confidentiality at all times.

I vow to contribute to the field of medicine through ethical study and equitable evidence-based care, and to treat my patients and represent my profession with compassion, humility, and equanimity.

I acknowledge the past and present failures of medicine to abide by its obligation to do no harm and affirm the need to address systemic issues in the institutions I uphold.

I promise to critically examine the systems and experiences that impact every person’s health and ability to receive care.

I vow to use this knowledge to uplift my patients and disrupt the injustices that harm them as I forge the future of medicine.

I acknowledge the background and experiences that enrich my perspectives while recognizing the limitations, shortcomings, and biases that I bring to each encounter with patients and colleagues.

I promise to self-reflect diligently, to confront unconscious prejudices, and to develop the skills, knowledge, and character necessary to engender an inclusive, equitable field of medicine.

I commit to fostering empathy and a culture of care, not just for our patients but for ourselves and our colleagues in healthcare.

I vow to remember the humanity and fallibility of myself and every member of the care team, and to call upon my colleagues for assistance in recognition of the limits of my knowledge and skills.

I acknowledge and embrace the diversity that exists within all communities, and the formative influence that the Washington Heights community will have on my future as a physician.

I promise to respect, regardless of identity or socioeconomic status, the fundamental dignity of all patients, colleagues, and community members, and their right to quality care.

I vow to restore trust where it has been broken and to inspire and nurture trust in the relationships I build with patients, through collaborative effort with my classmates, colleagues, and communities.

Let us bow our heads in recognition of the gravity of this oath; we swear to faithfully engage with these ideals and obligations for the ongoing betterment of medicine and humanity.”

It is not only Columbia, of course, but the spirit of the New Oath flourishes elsewhere. Like the University of Minnesota from this past October. Where white coats had to swear they were on Dakota land.

After groveling, then they swore that this they recognized that “this acknowledgement is not enough.”

Nothing is ever enough.

Your death, sacrificed to their great god DIE, would not be enough.

Do not get sick, my friends.

    Why is an evil white man leading the captives in that crazy ass oath? Why isn’t a fag Indian (feather, not dot) leading the oath and why hasn’t the school vacated that stolen land and given it back to the indians?

    These clowns have no medicine to cure what is ailing them – their race – so I will help them out.

    Here’s you cure clowns

    As you show under related, but most people are unaware of.
    Physicians haven’t taken the Hippocratic Oath since at least 1964.

    Even before the COVID and blatant DIE stuff, I was pretty suspicious of the medical industry. Not that I thought that they were unqualified, but because doctors cannot know everything and yet will pretend that they do. I realized this when I had a couple of back to back chronic issues that were repeatedly diagnosed differently, and incorrectly, but various doctors, but each time I was assured that it must be this problem and no other cause could be at fault. One particular thing I learned there is why we have such an abuse of antibiotics; it’s the go to prescription when a doctor is stumped.

    But at that time the doctors were at least pretty qualified to be competent for more common issues, and they were trying to help (they just were too prideful to admit that they didn’t know how when they didn’t know how.) The COVID stuff made clear that they will follow whatever dictates are given to them, and the DIE stuff leads both to less qualified and less caring people. We really are approaching the point where going to the doctor is an active detriment to your health.

    @spudjr60, “Physicians haven’t taken the Hippocratic Oath since at least 1964.” Not true.

    It’s true that some schools switched over in ’64, mostly on the East coast, yet there are still a handful that kept more or less the old oath. Heck, there are a few that still swear not to perform abortions or supply abortifacients.

    Interesting, though, that this younger generation blames the olds for failing to uphold their obligation to do no harm, yet they are only willing themselves to promise to not let systemic injustice harm their patients.

    Why do we expect that institutionalized “doctors” would retain Hippocrates oath when he himself wrote it against institutionalized “doctors” ? That they descend from Hippocrates is part of the lying mythology of “the medical profession.” Hippocrates vowed in his oath to not use drugs! Of course their lie kept his name relevant for us to lookup the original oath.

    But his oath is clearly polemic in part against those who use drugs and who try to do surgery themselves rather than deffering to a surgeon, and against those who do abortions (even by drugs) because he also vows not to do those.

    His oath is also to by Apollo, Asclepius, Hygieia, Panacea, and all the gods and goddesses, making them his witnesses.

    Athesists cannot take oaths which is why this LGBT oath only vows (but to nobody) to “faithfully ENGAGE WITH these ideals” (i.e. to preach them) whereas Hippocrates vowed (to the gods!) “that I will carry out, according to my ability and judgment, this oath and this indenture.”

    lol Jesus Christ I work in health services…they make us do this s**t at work…it’s called “make a commitment” and you put it in your email sig…now you don’t HAVE to do it…but if you don’t…questions will be asked

    “Atheists cannot take oaths…”

    I just referred to my secret Atheist Handbook, and there’s nothing there that says I can’t take an oath. An oath is a solemn promise, to others or to myself. I’m perfectly capable of making a promise and sticking to it because that’s the right thing to do. I don’t require a supernatural belief system to comprehend that doing harm is not nice, and I don’t need a threat of damnation to frighten me into obedience.

    And I’m sure you’ll hold yourself entirely responsible too for any oath you might break, Cary, even accidentally, even when nobody else has even noticed that you did. That’s exactly the pattern we observe, atheists freely entering the town hall, hearing, or police station during busy hours and proclaiming, “I’ve committed a crime/fault, and I want to confess, and I shall hold myself accountable!”

    If, before 2020, someone told me to see a homeopath or try herbal healing, I would have smiled and politely walked away. But today, I think I’d listen.

    An oath and a promise are not the same thing.

    You cannot swear on something sacred if you do not believe in the sacred.

    It surely explains why medical and health care is getting (and has gotten) more expensive, what with all these distractions and obligation on how “the helping professions” must spend their time.

    This helps explain the surge in popularity of doctor assisted suicide. Every white colonizer’s life they take is considered a sacrifice to their gods of diversity, inclusion, and equity.
