Holy War for a Holy Land?


by Alfred Adask


The New York Times published an article entitled, "King Salman Upends Status Quo in Region and the Royal Family". According to that article:

"In the few months since the death of King Abdullah in January, the new king of Saudi Arabia, Salman, has moved fast to reshape foreign and domestic policies. He has rattled alliances with the United States and regional powers that for decades have been the bedrock of stability for his kingdom."

The US/Saudi alliance has also been fundamental to maintaining some semblance of order within the entire Middle East region. The new king Salman's activism not only threatens relationships with the US, but also magnifies whatever forces of instability already exist among Middle East sects and nations.

"King Salman, 79, has shifted toward an activist foreign policy, going to war in Yemen and increasing support for rebels in Syria as he positions his country as the defender of the region's Sunnis."

Globally, the Sunni sect includes roughly 85% of all Muslims; the Shia sect includes about 15%. Insofar as King Salman regards himself as "defender of the region's Sunnis," he must be very serious about his Sunni faith and also regard the Shia as the principle threat to Sunnis.

King Salman is 79 years old. He must recognize that: 1) he's nearing the end of his life; and, 2) has only a limited time to act in ways that may please Allah. If so, he'll be a very "active" king who's willing, even eager, to take risks that younger men might avoid. We can presume that King Salman is a zealot eager to act on behalf of the Sunni sect.

Insofar as a spiritual antagonism has existed between Sunnis and Shiites for eight centuries, King Salman may be willing and even eager to settle ancient scores with the Shiite nations-especially Iran. It's therefore possible that Saudi King Salman may be more inclined to attack Iran than he is to attack Israel.

If King Salman lives long enough, we may be more likely to see the Middle East erupt in violence between Sunni and Shia Muslims than between Muslims and Israel.

"Domestically, he has made sweeping changes, promoting younger officials, firing those deemed unfit and giving enormous authority to his untested son Prince Mohammed bin Salman, 29. He has shown close ties to religious conservatives, raising questions about the fate of his predecessor's limited reforms."

King Salman is grooming his 29-year old son (Prince Mohammed bin Salman) to be heir apparent to the Saudi throne. When Salman finally passes, Prince Mohammed will probably be the next king of Saudi Arabia. We can assume that if king Salman is a religious zealot, Prince Mohammed is also zealous in his loyalty to the Sunni faith and therefore antagonistic to the Shiites.

Implication: The current king of Saudi Arabia and the next (most-likely) king may both be more focused on fighting Shiite Muslims-especially Iran-than Israel.

Note that the Sunnis and Shiites have been engaged in "holy war" for most of eight centuries. Modern Israel has existed for only 67 years. Israel can't pose the same magnitude of threat to the Sunnis as has been posed by Muslim Shiites for most of eight centuries. In the end, potential conflict between Saudi Arabia and Israel would be primarily be about territory and therefore mostly secular. But conflict between Sunnis and Shia would by "holy war"-and therefore fought without compromise.

More, Israel is unlikely to attack Saudi Arabia unless the Saudis first attack Israel. The same can't be said for the Shiites in general, and Iran in particular. Iran might attack Israel or it might attack Saudi Arabia.

If king Salman and Prince Mohammed both view themselves as "defenders of the Sunni faith," they're more likely to defend against Shiites than Jews, because they are more likely to be attacked by Shiites than by Jews.

Implication: with the loss of former Saudi King Abdullah, the Middle East is becoming increasingly volatile and perhaps more likely to erupt in widespread holy war between Sunnis and Shiites than between Muslims and Israel.

* Another recent article from The New York Times ("Saudi Arabia Says King Won't Attend Meetings in U.S.") reported that,

"As recently as Friday [May 8th], the White House said that King Salman would be coming" to a summit meeting with President Obama to "resume consultations on a wide range of regional and bilateral issues," according to Eric Schultz, a White House spokesman.

"But on Sunday [May 10th], the state-run Saudi Press Agency said that the king would instead send Crown Prince Mohammed bin Nayef, the Saudi interior minister, and Deputy Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, the defense minister."

King Salmon's sudden and unexpected refusal to meet personally with President Obama has to be viewed as a "slap" at the Obama administration.

"Arab officials said they viewed the king's failure to attend the meeting as a sign of disappointment with what the White House was willing to offer at the summit meeting as reassurance that the United States would back its Arab allies against a rising Iran."

In order to understand the potential implications of King Salman's new reign in Saudi Arabia, we need to review a little history:

In A.D. 1971, President Nixon stopped redeeming foreign-held US dollars with gold, and the dollar became a pure, intrinsically-worthless fiat currency. We might've expected the dollar to soon-after crash into oblivion.

However, the Nixon administration negotiated an audacious and brilliant agreement with Saudi Arabia whereby the US guaranteed Saudi security and the Saudis guaranteed to sell their crude oil only for fiat dollars. Soon, OPEC followed the Saudis and also agreed to sell their crude oil for only fiat dollars.

Result? If any nation wanted to purchase crude oil on the international markets, they had to have fiat dollars to do so. The international demand for crude oil created an international demand for fiat dollars that gave those intrinsically-worthless dollars a perceived value.

Result? The intrinsically-worthless dollar didn't collapse into oblivion. Instead, the fiat dollar assumed the mantle of "petro-dollar" and because, while it was no longer backed by gold, it was implicitly backed by crude oil.

The petro-dollar scheme worked brilliantly for about 30 years. It provided a perceived value for the fiat dollar. It allowed the fiat dollar to continue to serve as world reserve currency.

Then Saddam Hussein started selling Iraqi crude for currencies other than dollars and thereby threated the petro-dollar's monopoly. The US gov-co invaded Iraq and hanged Hussein, but the damage was done. Other nations began to sell their crude oil for currencies other than dollars. The dollar's perceived value as the one-and-only "petro-currency" began to erode. The fiat dollar's purchasing power began to fall.

The point to this stroll down memory lane is to remind us all that Saudi Arabia laid the foundation for creation of the "petro-dollar" that gave the fiat dollar a perceived value on international markets. It follows that if the Saudis simply started accepting other currencies in addition to thefiat dollar as payment for Saudi oil, whatever foundation remains for the fiat dollar to be perceived as the "petro-dollar" and even World Reserve Currency would tend to erode, and dollar inflation might become significant. It's possible that by accepting currencies other than the fiat dollars as payment for crude oil, the Saudis could badly devalue the fiat dollar and perhaps even precipitate its destruction.

This isn't news. Anyone who cared to look has known for years that the Saudi's could "pull the plug" on the petro-dollar-but didn't do so while king Abdullah was alive.

But, now the new king Salman is not only in charge, but "disappointed" with the US foreign policy. This "disappointment" at least increases the possibility that the Saudi's might start taking other currencies for their crude. If they did, the dollar might not collapse, but it's purchasing power on global markets might by be cut by, say, half. If that happened, the cost of living in the US might jump by 30%, and our recession could become a full-fledged depression.

I can't say that it's likely that king Salman will soon start taking currencies other than the dollar as payment for Saudi crude. But I can say that it's true that: 1) the Saudis could pull the plug on petro-dollars at any time; and 2) It's much more likely today that the Saudis will pull that plug than it was six months ago.

Point: the fiat dollar's status as "petro-dollar" and even World Reserve Currency is more in peril today, under the new king Salman, than it was under the old king, Abdullah.

Will the Saudi's pull the plug? Won't they?

No one knows. But it's apparent that there's one more "black swan" (King Salman) to worry about today than we had when king Abdullah was alive.

* In a third article("Saudi Arabia Promises to Match Iran in Nuclear Capability") The New York Times wrote:

"When President Obama began making the case for a deal with Iran that would delay its ability to assemble an atomic weapon, his first argument was that a nuclear-armed Iran would set off a "free-for-all" of proliferation in the Arab world. "It is almost certain that other players in the region would feel it necessary to get their own nuclear weapons," he said in 2012.

That was a reasonable supposition.

With the decline of US capacity to serve as "global policeman" and force the unruly nations of the Middle East to "play nice," ancient rivalries between Iran's Shiites vs the Saudi's Sunnis have begun to fester. Neither sect trusts the other. If one sect has nuclear weapons, the other sect will also want them.

Given that both sects are motivated by their opposing faiths rather than mere secular politics, both sects must be scared to death that the other sect will acquire nuclear weapons. Both sects are fanatical. Both believe they are acting in service to Allah. Both sects are ready to die for their faith. Neither sect dares to trust the other to restrain itself from starting a nuclear war. Both sects know that Muslim fanatics can't ever be trusted.

It may well be that Iran can't and will not agree to a nuclear non-proliferation agreement so long as the Saudi/Sunnis have, or could have, nuclear weapons.

Similarly, if the Saudis think there's one chance in 1,000 that the proposed agreement with Iranian Shiites will actually allow Iran to acquire nuclear weapons, the Saudis may riot.

Although I expect Iran to reach an agreement with the US to slow nuclear proliferation in the Middle East, I'd be amazed if anyone (or than Obama, perhaps) really believes that the agreement will be kept. Iran is negotiating to have trade sanctions lifted. Obama is negotiating for "peace with honor". There's little prospect that Iran's presumed intent to acquire nuclear weapons will be blunted for more than a year or two.

"Now, President Obama is faced a perverse consequence: Saudi Arabia and many of the smaller Arab states are now vowing to match whatever nuclear enrichment capability Iran is permitted to retain.

President Obama started negotiating with Iran in A.D. 2012 to prevent nuclear proliferation in the Middle East. Ironically, those same negotiations may ultimately cause nuclear proliferation in the Middle East.

Why? Because Muslims tend to be unstable, fanatical and paranoid. No matter what anyone says or does, it's the Muslims' nature to acquire nuclear weapons. Once they acquire nuclear weapons, then we'll see if it's the Muslims' nature to use nuclear weapons.

"Prince Turki bin Faisal, the 70-year-old former Saudi intelligence chief, has been touring the world with the same message.

"Whatever the Iranians have, we will have, too," he said at a recent conference in Seoul, South Korea.

If two groups of religious fanatics (people who aren't afraid to kill or be killed in service to their sect) are each armed with nuclear weapons, how long do suppose we'll have to wait before we see mushroom clouds rising in the Middle East and a dramatic reduction in the world's supply of crude oil?

"If the agreement is sealed successfully next month . . . Mr. Obama will be able to claim to have bought another decade before Iran can credibly threaten to have a nuclear weapon."

Yes, yes, yes. A fine feather in his cap. Peace with honor.

"But by leaving 5,000 centrifuges and a growing research and development program in place-the features of the proposed deal that Israel and the [Sunni] Arab states oppose virulently-Mr. Obama is essentially recognizing Iran's right to continue enrichment of uranium, one of the two pathways to a nuclear weapon. Leaders of the Sunni Arab states are arguing that if Iran goes down that road, Washington cannot credibly argue they should not follow down the same one, even if their technological abilities are years behind Iran's.

"With or without a deal, there will be pressure for nuclear proliferation in the Middle East."

No matter what Obama does, a number of Middle East nations are going to acquire nuclear weapons.

"The question is one of capabilities. How would the Saudis do this [implement their own nuclear weapons research program] without help from the outside?"

If the US won't help the Saudis develop their own nuclear weapons research program, do you suppose that China and/or Russia would? Of course.

If the US assists the Saudi Sunnis in developing a nuclear weapon research program, will other Shiite nations (like Iran) look for the same assistance from Russia or China? Of course.

The nuclear genii is out of the Middle East bottle.

* I guarantee that the nations that already have nuclear weapons are seriously considering using their nuclear weapons to stop any new nation that seeks to acquire nuclear weapons.

The world is marching into madness. It's hard to say if that march is being led by the Muslims, the US, some sect or corporation or the New World Order. But, whoever's leading, the march is clearly quickening.

"Mr. Obama met with Saudi princes in the Oval Office on Wednesday. . . But Mr. Obama will have a difficult timeovercoming the deep suspicions that the Saudis [Sunnis], and other [Sunni] Arab leaders, harbor about the Iran [Shia] deal.

"Saudi Prince Turki argued that the United States was making a "pivot to Iran" that was ill advised, and that the United States failed to learn from North Korea's violations of its nuclear deals. "We were America's best friend in the Arab world for 50 years," he said, using the past tense."

Obama has lost the trust of several former allies in the Middle East. I'm no fan of Obama's, but I can't I blame him. The Middle East is a kind of lunatic asylum. Whatever instability might otherwise exist in the Middle East, that instability is magnified and even celebrated by the Sunnis, Shiites, and Jews. Holy war for a "holy land". One way or another, holy war seems inevitable.

In his attempt to gain the trust of Iran's Shiites, Obama has lost the trust of Sunnis of the region (including Saudi Arabia) and also the Jews of Israel.

Whether that trust was primarily lost due to Obama's incompetence, or Middle East's inherent instability and paranoia is hard to say. But, whatever the reason for the loss, that trust will not be regained before a new President takes office-if ever.

In the meantime, we can wonder how many years it may be before one Muslim sect nukes the other.


Christian Genocide in full swing - Where is Obama and our leaders


The global slaughter of Christians is growing in leaps and bounds at the hands of Muslims and their supporters. ISIS or ISIL and other murderous Islamic relatives consider the daily torture and murder jobs of Christians simply obeying Muhammad and their pagan god Allah. Sometimes they offer the victim before they are murdered, the 3 choices stated in Chapter 9 of the Koran - 1) Forcibly convert to Islam 2) Give them great amounts of money as a high tax to stay alive 2) or be killed. Many times they don't even offer them those options. Instead they just cut right to the torture and murder part - slow and gruesome.

Each week I interview on my national radio show, experts who have tasted the real horror offered up by Islam and are involved with exposing and confronting the real Islamic agenda. It is most clear that there is a real Christian genocide happening all around the world. Ted and Whalid Shoebat have long exposed the slaughterhouses in Syria, where Christians are kidnapped, tortured, hung by their feet like cows, then butchered. This is a regular occurrence along with ISIS and Islamic rebels wiping out whole Christian neighborhoods and villages. Not only has America and Obama not helped the victims or confronted the Islamic murderers, but instead, Obama has been complicit in creating ISIS - ISIL by sending them (through Lybia) thousands of lethal and high-end weapons and money.

Not only did America under Barack Obama's leadership weaponized the Islamic rebels, growing and creating ISIS and its offspring, but the weapons pathway and illegal activities lead to the murder of Ambassador Stevens and staff. We are still awaiting justice and untangling the cover up that has followed for many years now. I pray Rep. Trey Gowdy pushes through the wall on this investigation and gets it right.

The genocide is funded and organized all around the world. All through Africa, where villages are torched; young girls are captured and used as sex slaves, husbands and fathers are murdered in front of their families and torture and kidnappings are daily staples.

Iraq is a growing horror show as well and once again Obama says nothing except for Christians to get off their 'high horse' and be ashamed because of our involvement in the Great Crusade over 600 years ago. I am ashamed all right...I'm ashamed that Christians took so long to rise up at the hands of Muslim aggression, torture and stealing of their land. Will today in America end up being another place in history where we were 'too little - too late'?

Several have screamed very loud, making desperate appeals to stop the madness and get help from the US and our Government to save lives, but Obama is nowhere on this. He just looks the other way as hundreds of thousands of American citizens and Christians are murdered in the name of Allah and Muhammad. Obama has gone way behind being another Neville Chamberlain horror. Obama knows that the tortures and blood letting is happening all over to Christians and does nothing about it. Chamberlain could hardly believe Hitler would be capable of such evil so imposed denial on himself.

Sister Dian Momeka of the Dominican Sisters of Saint Catherine of Siena has spoken before the House Foreign Affairs Committee. She has described in Technicolor what is going on to Christians through out Iraq. She describes it as mass genocide and has begged Obama and America for help. Her comments were covered in a Newsmax piece by Cathy Burke.

"As this horror spread through out the Nineveh Plain, by Aug 6, 2014, Nineveh was emptied of Christians, and sadly, for the first time since the seventh century A.D., no church bells rang for Mass in the Plain of Nineveh," she said, adding that since then, more than 120,000 people found themselves "displaced and homeless" in the Kurdistan region of Iraq. "The current persecution that our community is facing is the most brutal in our history."

Cardinal Dolan and others have weighed in and warned Obama and America about our skewed lack of protection of Christians in the Mideast, yet nothing is done and Obama plays more golf.

It appears as if by his brazen lack of action and even words against Christians, that Obama is in full support of the Islamic caliphate and murderous genocide of Christians worldwide. If he isn't in support of this then he must do more than 'sound bite' theatre and brief empty statements reflecting no action.

We find ourselves in another Nazi Germany horror show of extermination again. This time it is the Christians and we have a President who not only looks the other way, he funds and weaponizes the murderous Islamic groups that are doing it all.

Gold prices hit a three-month high, after a good day Wednesday showing good follow-through strength from solid gains posted Wednesday. Meantime, silver futures also hit a three-month high Thursday. Continued through Friday.

The U.S. dollar index hit a nearly four-month low in overnight trading but did rebound during U.S. dealings to trade just above unchanged. Meantime, the Euro currency pushed to a three-month high against the greenback Thursday.

Rising bond yields point to rising inflation, which is bullish for hard assets.

Encouraging news on the U.S. job market helped lift stock indexes in afternoon trading Thursday. Applications for unemployment aid fell last week, sending the four-week average down to its lowest level in 15 years.

UNEMPLOYMENT BENEFITS: The Labor Department said that fewer people applied for unemployment aid last week, pushing the four-week average down to its lowest level since April 2000.

hold on to their employees, despite signs of sluggish growth.

FALLING PRICES: The government said Thursday that the producer price index, which tracks the prices of goods and services before they reach consumers, fell 0.4 percent last month.

That could mean that the Federal Reserve will hold off on raising its key interest rate until this fall, said Erik Davidson, chief investment officer for Wells Fargo Private Bank. "Inflation is not a big issue," he said.

"The market consensus has to be that it will be September or later that the Fed will move.

The biggest providers of exchange-traded funds, which have been funneling billions of investor dollars into some little-traded corners of the bond market, are bolstering bank credit lines for cash to tap in the event of a market meltdown.

Vanguard Group, Guggenheim Investments and First Trust are among U.S. fund companies that have lined up new bank guarantees or expanded ones they already had, recent company filings show.

The measures come as the Federal Reserve and other U.S. regulators express concern about the ability of fund managers to withstand a wave of investor redemptions in the event of another financial crisis. They have pointed particularly to fixed-income ETFs, which tend to track less liquid markets such as high yield corporate bonds or bank loans.

"You want to have measures in place in case there are high volumes of redemption so you can meet those redemptions without severely impacting the liquidity of the underlying securities," said Ryan Issakainen, exchange-traded fund strategist at First Trust. The company has increased a credit line it has set up to $80 million at the end of last year, the most recent reporting period, from what was originally a $20 million line in early 2013. The line is shared by two of its ETFs and two mutual funds with a combined $645 million in assets. 




The massive age of machines


by Herbalist Wendy Wilson


Being more efficient and more cost effective is every business bottom line. The medical industry complex is not different. The auto industry started replacing human employees with robots in 1962. By 1980 and several robot generations later, machines at General Motors were common and the robot industry was growing rapidly. In fact, there was a new robot entering a new marketplace every month. The machine takeover is apparent and why wouldn't any industry jump to this long-term, cost-saving option? Robots entering the marketplace which have the potential of influencing life and death are an area of concern. Is modern healthcare moving in the direction to use machines and replace eighty percent of what your doctor, your surgeon, your anesthesiologist and your dentist do? Who was the guy that suggested, let's take robots off the assembly line and put them in the exam room and the OR? Let's take a look of what is ahead in this area of medicine.



Fortune Magazine did a story on what the future of healthcare might look like. They are convinced that technology will only improve the healthcare experience and help physicians do their jobs better. So, they don't think that Robo Doc will replace the human carbon physician just yet.


"Healthcare today is often really the "practice of medicine" rather than the "science of medicine." Fortune 12/4/12



According to the Fortune Magazine report, the University of Miami, Florida did a study in 2005 where they withheld aspirin or ibuprofen from a group of patients that developed a fever. Under the experiment, the group that did not get these drugs when a fever began had more successful recoveries and fewer deaths than the patients that were given these drugs. The patients that did receive the drugs had temperatures of 101.3 degrees F as dictated by the standard treatment protocols. The trail was stopped by team leaders who felt it was unethical to allow patients to receive the standard treatment. Will programmed robots make such a call? Humans have a hard time breaking a habit or a tradition such as dispensing aspirin for a fever. How can we expect robots to stop a standardized treatment? Experts in favor of more automation have no problem with robots in medical practice and say that artificial intelligence will cover any program issue. I don't know which would be worse; a robot that is programmed to follow instructions or one that can arbitrarily decide to change procedure.



We all know that contract clauses are used to protect caregivers from liability lawsuits. Who do patients sue when under the care of machines?



There are two sides of the issue and we can cover the human error part of practicing medicine. Concerns such as sleep deprivation, drug dependency, ethics and morals are part of the human condition but are told this would not influence Robo Doc. Well, there is this basic concept that you can't have something that is created without having a creator. The creator influences the created. For example, there was a 1984 movie called Starman where Jeff Bridges played an alien and he learned to drive a car by watching humans. He was driving actress Karen Allen in this one scene where he ran a yellow light and she called him on it. He replies; "I watched you very carefully; green light - go, red light - stop and yellow light - go very, very fast."   Industry experts who are for more machines in the medical field point out that human error costs too many lives. Misdiagnosis is their primary argument. Machines are going to have other obstacles to deal with such as patients lying to them or not remembering facts. Will they pick up on these and other subtle details? In taking advantage of this difference, I suppose robot marketing firms could produce an upgraded robot that "has been around the block" and obviously would cost more. Sure robots can store the information of over 5,000 research articles on heart disease or recall over 10,000 possible human diseases. The point is that with humans and healthcare it is not only about data. Where the "data science" area can assist physicians is by utilizing this information more quickly but there is no substitute for experience and empathy. Also, the data we do have a majority of it has been obtained through trial and error. I doubt robots will be capable of deciding to try something based on a hunch.



If our medical industry is going for a robot overhaul, the machines will pick up a whopping 80% of the current doctor obligations such as; diagnosis, tests, return office visits, writing prescriptions, assessing patient behavior etc. The robots will be outfitted with sensors, data collection, analytical assessment programs and other capabilities to measure the patient complaint. Essentially the robots will take over the initial contact with patients and formalize a treatment plan. We're told that this will cut down on errors, overhead costs etc. The description you just read is what general practitioners do. Some experts are calling this "rebalancing healthcare" saying that computers/machines are better at organizing, recalling and handling complex information than the flesh and blood professionals. They predict that the robots will bring an almost immediate 50% improvement overall to the healthcare system. If doctors are to be replaced by machines then so will RN's, lab technicians and others also will be replaced. Lifecom conducted a clinical trial where the computer platform was 91% accurate at a diagnosis without having to run laboratory tests or other studies. The question I ask is what happened to the 9% and would they have been properly diagnosed with the test?  What all this means is that the data science technology contribution to medicine will take over the triage, diagnosis and decision-making part of treatment. That ultimately means we will need fewer doctors. Robots will not be sitting in class or cramming for exams. Therefore, the medical schools will be affected. We're told that eventually if there are any humans in healthcare it will be for their caring personalities rather than for their diagnostic/treatment abilities. I guess bedside manner coming from a machine just doesn't have the same empathy. However, that won't stop the computer wizards from designing the bedside algorithms. They may be able to build humor into the machine's program but building a trusting relationship with healthcare providers are being taken out of the equation.  


"Data science has potential but a great amount of information is not enough. The data collection should be able to lead machines to accurate conclusions; otherwise we'll get very precise wrong conclusions." Dr. Julio Mayol, Surgery professor San Carlos Clinical Hospital of Madrid



We are also hearing from the science division of healthcare that the technology is developing so quickly that many devices patients will be wearing will monitor them 24/7. The technology sector of healthcare wants to predict the patient's future. It is suppose to be a benefit to help prevent risk and negative events. The machines will comb through decades worth of data in seconds to determine a patient's risk factor and health future. Based on predictions, patient treatment plans will be created and expected to be followed. Monitoring devices and medications will have built in sensors to alert medical authorities if the patient has complied with the treatment protocol. The question is how will patients react to being diagnosed, treated and monitored by a giant supercomputer?  Will this usher in a new era where artificial intelligence is perceived to be superior to humans? Will humans lose the ability to practice medicine while data science driven technology takes over through the back door? I can predict that less money spent paying doctors, nurses and other health professionals will allow for more capital to be spent elsewhere. Where it is spent is anyone's guess.


"Logic has the potential to make healthcare better, but only if resulting interpretations are applied by caring doctors, and ones available in sufficient numbers to meet with and be a part of patients' lives. If medical practice were reduced to algorithms, five-year survival rates would dictate treatment producing a medical practice impenetrable ceiling. The concepts of fighting on, breaking the odds, faith, hope and prayer would be vanquished from medicine. And the human race would be much poorer for it." Greg Freiherr, Medical Consultant



Other areas where occupations are given over to computers are; auto-pilot aircraft, stock exchange algorithmic trading and the new self-driving car by Google. What other areas will humans give up their involvement and let computers take over?


"Computers often make mistakes, and sometimes ones as seemingly obvious as not knowing that Toronto is not a U.S. city" Dr. Eliot Siegel, MD, University of Maryland School of Medicine



Each of us has the ability to care and look after our health. That is a God-given right that is being replaced by licensed professionals and eventually technology. The monitoring aspect of our current world lends itself to a long list of compliance issues. The future will be what we allow it to be.
