Serving the Medical Oligarchy
This author was witness to the history of how this came to be. Evidence-based
medicine came about so that a type of medical elite within academia—elite because
they also claim the title of scientist— adopted the theory or method of
determining causation for the purpose of prediction. Prediction carries the awe of
the crystal ball for the patient, the certainty of an outcome of a gamble for the
insurance company, and the authority of numeracy.
Because all physicians do not belong to the group of physician-scientists, the
latter has become a type of oligarchy, which uses evidence-based medicine
to control and judge the practice, certification, and continued licensing of all
physicians. Those guidelines and algorithms written by the cadre of elite scientist-
physicians make certain that the influence of the individual physician is
minimized, by restricting his/her activity or decisions to those options provided
by the probabilities of outcome determined from the large, double-blind,
These are physicians with a certain outlook on human ingenuity and creativity.
Not only do they believe that creativity has no place in medicine, but they
carry hatred and disdain for it, because in their limited view, it is not “scientific.”
Killing for Chance?
But what drives the so-passionate push for evidence-based medicine? Passion
suggests a purpose. What drives the physician who would deny a cancer patient
or otherwise terminally ill patient a treatment which might work but has a low
probability of working, and does so although the patient is requesting that therapy?
