It’s normal when a country has been using licensing systems to protect the medical staffs’ and industries’ monopoly for such a long time.
On the other hand, we also notice that more than 50% of the American people try to get other medical services or treatments instead of the mainstream ones. Causes and effects, it’s not difficult to understand.
This video also reflects the shortcoming of the democracy I talked about yesterday: few interest groups manipulate the majority, due to the differences in the marginal costs. Most people just have no idea of the true medical costs. Naturally, they are vulnerable to the few interest groups and tend to be cheated in their votings as long as they are told some clichés, such as “The licensing system is trying to protect people.”
