WOLF: FIRST, DO NO HARM

Dr. Milton Wolf enjoys a growing reputation as a blogger and a columnist for the Washington Times. He is also the President’s second cousin, which we try not to hold against him.

Now he’s a pamphleteer in the tradition of Tom Paine. His new pamphlet, First, Do No Harm, explains why his Hippocratic oath requires him to oppose ObamaCare. It begins as follows:

Barack Obama is a smart man, a caring man, and as a member of his family, I would even say that he’s a man of impeccable genetics. But as a doctor, I’m compelled to say that he profoundly misunderstands the greatness of the American health care system and by extension, the greatness of the American free-market model.

Wolf’s pamphlet is part of series that anyone interested in liberty should read:

The ‘Voices of the Tea Party’ e-book series launches Tuesday at Amazon, Barnes & Noble and other online retailers; new books will be released every six weeks. See much information – including how to submit a pamphlet proposal – at www.BroadsideBooks.net.

This pamphlet is both inexpensive ($1.99) and priceless. Go out, download it, read it—and think about it.

    You keep citing Thomas Paine, but you are obviously unaware he was a progressive.

    Marc, you are correct, he died a progressive. After “Rights of Man”, he began to embrace progressivism, driving off most of his friends and admirers in the US. His writing after moving to France was decidedly looney.

    That being said, “Common Sense,” “The Crisis,” and “Rights of Man,” were great commentary of the feelings of the colonists during the revolutionary years. I guess you could say that “Rights of Man Part II,” The Age of Reason” and “Agrarian Justice,” reflected the wild liberalism of the French revolution.

    I mean really, collection pension at 21?

    There was a reason the French got an emperor directly after their revolution had petered out. They never truly had the will to be free.

    Oh, or were you just trying to yank David’s chain?

    Kind of odd to apply 21st-century concepts like “progressivism” to enlightenment-era figures like Tom Paine.

    One problem for we who are not liberals, eytc., is NOT to *buy into* the DIALECTIC of the Left & Far LEft.
    Like the word ‘progressive’.
    I went to a site that is liberal-run, and ranked politicians according to how they did/did not conform to their liberal agenda. They were categorized as either “progressive” or DIGRESSIVE.
    THAT’S what they want us to buy into. If someone is not LIBERAL, then he/she/ is not progressive in thought, but DIGRESSIVE.
    They seek to emotionally manipulate & control the discussion by distorting and controlling language.
    Please do not advance their language-tactic.

    Harry, I appreciate the sentiment, but the reason I started interchanging the two words about 5 years ago was that the libs thought it was a word that they could hide behind, as we tend to forget political history. I noticed that “progressive” was not identified as a liberal position and decided to drive the point.

    It also has more historical significance in that it was used in the late 19th and early 20th century when the US started to push socialist and facist national policies.
