Please read first

Dear reader,

moca_and_me_small

I would like to thank you very much, for giving a part of your invaluable time to read my blog. All materials in this site are provided with the true hope that it will help someone, sometime, somewhere.

The author (Romeo Lupascu) provides no warranty for any kind for the information provided and can not be hold responsible for the actions of the reader and the subsequent consequences derived from them at any time, present or future.   All the information I’m publishing on this website represents my own personal opinions. Under no circumstance any information on this site (http://romeolupascu.net) represents any of my current past or future employers unless I’m specifically stating it in my articles.

I’m manually approving all feedback and I will only approve feedback which is meaningful and can help the articles and other readers.  This means that messages like whose content is only “great!”, “thank you”, “f… you” etc. will be considered spam and deleted.
Any generic message which can go as well with any other website or article and which is usually generated by poorly written programs will also be considered spam and deleted.
I apologize if your message gets deleted. If I can determine that you are a real person or a sufficiently advanced artificial intelligence (AI) 🙂 then your comments will be approved with your agreement.

As of Mar 15, 2014, after loosing too much time deleting spam messages, I was forced to require the reader to register with this blog before posting the feedback. This is not what I’ve wanted but I had no choice. Please accept my apologies for this restriction.

As of May 24, 2015 I’m dropping the restriction on being registered with the site to post comments, but I’m keeping the manual approval process, since this is a personal private non commercial site. I’ll experiment further with this new settings and avoid using any email based registration as countries like Canada passed anti spam legislation which can land me in hot water if my site sends any unsolicited email to you (and defects can happen in software!).

I am aware that “I know what I know, but I don’t know what I don’t know”.
I will always appreciate any advice which can help to make those articles clearer and easier to understand.

After many years, I’ve realized that the probability to please everyone in the world is pretty low no matter how much I would hope and try. Knowing this, I can only promise to strive to provide information as close as possible to what I personally perceive as correct, at the time of the writing. I’m also going to fix any error as soon as I’ll find it myself or with your help.

Some times, we may set unrealistic expectations based on the information we receive, due to various stages of filtering when this information is assimilated by our mind.

Knowing this, I respectfully warn you to use your own rationale, when using any information on this site. Please use your own best judgement before using it in any of your future actions.

Even though I’m striving not to allow any violent language or ideas to creep in my articles, I know that it is very hard to foretell how any of this information will be used by people visiting the site. That is why, I respectfully ask you to never incite to hate or violence based on any interpretation of the information or parts of the information you find on http://romeolupascu.net.

I’m only a human being on my road to better understand the universe…

If you find any part of the information to be inappropriate, please live a comment and I promise to take action as soon as possible.

Romanian is my first language and English second, this may lead to some expressions looking unusual for the native English  speaker. If you find so, please live me a message. I’ll always appreciate your help in this matter.

This is a blog allowing people to post their own feedback for each article I post. The feedback messages are not automatically posted on the site. I apologize if you will not see your message publicized but my rules are simple:

  • I will review all messages no matter if I can identify the owner or not
  • I will only approve a message and make it public if:
    • I will receive the approval of the owner (if not stated in the message)
    • the message helps the context of the posting (criticism is very welcome, spam is not)

Thank you so much for your time and understanding!

I hope you will find that your time was well spent by reading my articles.

Why a pure market approach to health is not only a bad idea but is simply immoral

There is a blind fight out there between believers in different versions of our health care model. Some are worshiping the mighty market and the others are jumping head on in the communal insurance pool. Who is right? I personally believe both views have huge issues and biases.

It seem that both groups are missing one important fact I’m going to try explain by using a simple graph bellow.

Market based health care model

Let’s put the above graph (the camel graph) in few words. The profit for the health industry, including Drug companies, Hospitals, Doctors and personnel, and to some extent insurance industry makes the biggest bucks out of your health misery!

If you are dead, the industry makes nothing (at least for now…), if you are completely healthy the industry only makes money out of your insurance and your fears. It sells you “maintenance pills” however you have the choice to refuse buying into it.

The insurance though is a totally different matter. To work will, all people should contribute to maximize the common pool and no one or only few should consume out of the pool in order to maximize the profits. One way or another things go down to profits and entitlements. When you have a limit on your insurance people tent to maximize the usage and the health industry pushes for it. That pushes the costs up and lower insurance business profits so they will push down on how may people are insured, how expensive your insurance is and how much you can claim.

Clearly, we want that people which helps us to be healthy, to have a top status reflecting our real top health condition. Unfortunately, when profit is in the middle, things start to get biased towards the dark side.

My solution for this complex problem?

These days, personal automation, will give all individuals a chance to get out of this “rat race” if they choose to understand and believe in it.

There is a bright future waiting for all believers in this solution and will be alive when it will happen. Extends your mind and grab it or else it may grab you instead, if it does it could grab you the wrong way. Sh..t happens in general, but it tend to happen more frequently to the ignorant. Don’t be one.
