NHS falls prey to the politics of perception, invests in maintaining deception.

NHS Hospitals Spent £2m On Gagging Orders For 50 Potential Whistleblowers

The emotion-backed opinion and demand that has been sold to the public as freedom to choose, market force efficiency and accountability for 'delivery', made into policy and legislation and enforced with self righteous blame and shame methods ... is coming home to roost.

Instead of a real relationship in which needs are discerned, and met proportionately with due priority, we have blind systems that divide everything into disconnected parts and then attempt to join them together in such a way as to tick the right boxes. We have people working so as to appear to be working or so as to account for their work in ways that undermine and disrupt their work.
That it is not bedlam is only because underneath all this nonsense, people actually care. They also care NOT to be vilified, penalised, deprived of funds or employment, and so mostly, common sense and uncommon discernment, are withheld from open communication.

Surely, the attempt to make humankind - and treat humankind in the image of the automaton, is simply a reflection of a certain kind of thinking - that itself is a loveless mechanical mode of manipulating externals with no regard whatsoever for the truth.

Now this mentality may seek to define truth and indeed prove that if there is such, it is current best theory or un-understandable scientific esoterica, but I am talking of the truth that can be felt, can be shared, can be honoured and trusted - and without which no human society or sanity is possible - indeed insanity depends on such truth to exist as a distortion - for it is a distortion of SOMETHING SANE.

Turning and turning in the widening gyre
    The falcon cannot hear the falconer;
    Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
    Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
    The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere
    The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
    The best lack all conviction, while the worst
    Are full of passionate intensity. (From Yeats: the Second Coming)

What is the 'Second Coming' but the dawning in our mind of what is already in it but had been denied for self-seeking vanities? A Prodigal remembering.
And what is the emergence of the 'beast' but the exposure of the basis of a lovelessness which substitutes for a real relationship?

'It' will seek to apply ever more controls and rules and manipulations to 'engineer' a solution, but living relationships are not like mechanical systems that can be redesigned from an outside view, but must be rebuilt in trust and honest communication from within.

'Insanity who really cares, propaganda - all is phoney' sang Dylan. Opinion is a mask, we need to establish the conditions in which real communication can occur. We must grow trust from an honest account of where we really are - rather than presentations that meet 'correctness'. maybe it simply starts in our mind within ourself - but must extend as discernment and prompt call forth, or we deny the answers to our need.
