    Vladimir Lenin: "Socialized Medicine is the Keystone to the Arch of the Socialist State."​



    March 8, 2010


    “Would socialized medicine lead to socialization of other phases of life? Lenin thought so. He declared socialized medicine is the keystone to the arch of the socialist state.”
    1945 AMA Pamphlet Warning

    From the Socialists Workers Party–
    When the administration of John F. Kennedy discussed a plan for government health care that would cover people of Social Security age, the American Medical Association (AMA) fought back, along with the insurance and pharmaceutical industries, with a well-funded campaign–complete with a commercial featuring actor Ronald Reagan, who was determined to talk to America about an “imminent threat”:

    Now, back in 1927, an American socialist, Norman Thomas, six times candidate for president on the Socialist Party ticket, said the American people would never vote for socialism. But he said under the name of liberalism, the American people would adopt every fragment of the socialist program.

    One of the traditional methods of imposing statism or socialism on a people has been by way of medicine. It’s very easy to disguise a medical program as a humanitarian project…Now, the American people, if you put it to them about socialized medicine and gave them a chance to choose, would unhesitatingly vote against it.

    …According to the Physicians for a National Health Program’s (PNHP) Karen Palmer, the AMA assessed its members an extra $25 each to resist national health insurance, and in 1945, it spent $1.5 million on lobbying efforts, which at the time was the most expensive lobbying effort in American history.

    An AMA pamphlet warned, “Would socialized medicine lead to socialization of other phases of life? Lenin thought so. He declared socialized medicine is the keystone to the arch of the socialist state.”

    AMA propaganda from the '60s (especially when dutifully delivered by stooges like Reagan) is pretty entertaining.

    In the 1890's Bismarck of Germany felt people were so discontented they might cause problems so he introduced socialised medicine to Germany. Much of the discontent stopped and Germany has had socialized medicine since.

    The slippery slope argument does not work with socialized medicine, it's has it's drawbacks but turning a country communist is not one of them.

    The Nazis believed in having a large, strong military. What does that say about modern day Americans who want a large, strong military?

    Certainly you didn't read the article, or you would have seen that it was originated by The story of Medicare | SocialistWorker.org
    But nice try.

    Very good history. I wonder why you didn't go further to explain that to have some respite in the war the Kaiser sent Lenin in a closed train, with twenty million dollars in gold to Russia to keep the Russia revolution going.

    Really? Germany? The nation which was responsible for World War I, World War II, the Holocaust, the Nazi's, and Adolf Hilter? That's who you're going to point to as proof that people are "content" and that socialized medicine as a success story? :rofl:

    Yeah, those Germans were so "content", they promptly shoved 20 million Jews into ovens after torturing them.... :rofl:
