It 's scary, and thoughtless how companies and/or businesses will actually commit this unworthy act. we the patients should be able to trust in these members of society, and not to feel cheated especially when patient 's look at their statements and have to question the problem they see. maybe that 's why healthcare is always changing policies, and premiums going up. the National Health Care Anti-Fraud Association (NHCAA) estimates that the financial losses are due to health care fraud in the high billions of dollars each year. patients fall to health care fraud tremendously in this day in age.
Depending on the situation, and the law, civilians always have the right but there is a time for laws to be obeyed or rejected. For instance, Thoreau describes the machine of the government as injustice. He argues, when injustice has a link to the government one must consider the solution “to be the agent of injustice to… break the law” (Thoreau 9). Thoreau uses the analogy of the government being a strong machine of injustice to encourage people to purify the state by breaking laws. So, when citizens feel oppressed by the unjust nature of the government they will prevent unfair treatment.
The lessons about police corruption continue to break the basic building blocks of the nation. The many variations of police corruption undoubtedly effects perceptions of law as a legitimate establishment. One issue looms in the definition of corruption across the vast cultures within the United States. Suggestively, solutions to police corruption can be reduced by enlisting basic, cross-cultural, mass police department policies and procedures. Efforts to lower police corruption should be based on the selective differences between the individuals that cause it.
It has become a primary focus of not only the police force but also most of the nation to put an end to it. There are several possible reasons for this shift in sentiment , including the profound health risks associated with the profession. Over the years, more research has been done on the infections and diseases that can be contracted from such activities, and the public has become more aware of the severe health implications prostitution can have. Another possible explanation is the general rise in moral judgement throughout the nation. People have concluded that is wrong to sell your body for money and that there are other way jobs available that are less degrading.
Sontag explains how people with cancer should not feel cursed or punished, but instead see it as traveling to the “kingdom of sick.” Metaphors can help the general public understand difficult subjects and concepts, but become detrimental when people are defined by their illness or condition. A common misconception is “any disease that is treated as a mystery and acutely enough feared will be felt to be morally, if not literally, contagious” (Sontag 6). The cultural myths about diseases stigmatize and shame those affected and the illness itself. Cancer and TB can all be physically exhausting and sometimes even more emotionally draining because of the negative view society has. Over time
Worrall appropriately points out that “any effective crime control strategy needs to be balanced against the possible argument that it threatens people's rights” (2008). Though this is true, there are too many cases of unethical civil forfeiture to ignore the problem. Controversy will always surround civil forfeiture because it has “powerful economic consequences” (Worrall, 2008), but every aspect of civil forfeiture must be examined so society can both see the merits of the system and stand up against the
How Corrupt Governments Affect Their Citizens The fundamental purpose of the establishment of democracy was to create a fair and just ruling for all citizens. However, in many nations around the world, corruption has seeped through and infiltrated the workings of the government. Countries such as, North Korea, Sudan, and Somalia are filled illegal acts that facilitate lawless societies, restrict their economic growth, and create strife among citizens. North Korean citizens live under totalitarian control with restricted freedom and lack of expression. While in Sudan and Somalia, a lack of unbiased guidelines gives corrupt individuals the freedom to misuse their power.
Events like Bubonic plague; even though it happened hundreds of years ago, still have an effect on today’s society. So, what would happen today if something like the “Black Death” would start to spread? We can’t be certain, but based on human nature, a lot of people would act much like they did back then. Hysteria wins out over sound thinking. Although we have a clear understanding of how most disease is transmitted, all it would take is for a new plague that we don’t fully understand to start and people would start hunting scapegoats and turn on each other.
The opioid crisis includes the abuse of painkiller medication which is a medicine like aleve or Advil. These substances are capable of being just as harmful as heroin or crystal meth if taken at a certain amount. Thus, these types of medication needs to be monitored as there is an abundance of them throughout the United States. The opioid crisis has reached a point in history where it 's’ one of the leading causes of death and thus was declared by president Trump on twitter that it was a “...NATIONAL PUBLIC HEALTH EMERGENCY under federal law..” thus enforcing how critical this issue is to public health. The opioid epidemic has grown to become a national health problem signifies that pharmacists need to be active in preventing the abuse of common painkiller medication.
