Should We Question Authority? Q&A #98


The question really is whether the authority of chiropractic is the 33 principles, what BJ said, what the CCE says, what the national association says, or the state law.

    In an ideal world the state law would mirror the intent of the principles. BJ is dead, and while he made important contributions, we need to move beyond his ramblings to uphold the principle. The CCE is a political organism pandering to the politics of medical acceptance and egos in the profession and therefore has no moral authority. One of the national associations is both misguided and powerless. They literally let the government throw us a bone in medicare to the point of accepting the x ray detection of subluxation which is an entity they do not think exists. There are sincere people in other associations but they are even more powerless.

    God is the authority, we must listen to that we small voice inside.

      I assume you consider that wee ma’ voice as BJ said, the innate intelligence of the body/

    After dealing with my state board for the past couple years over the approach to chiropractic I offer to my community and being ridiculed and prosecuted by them for not practicing up to “their” standards…I would like to say we are all under the authority of the CCE controlling us via their exams and connections with State Board agencies. I was well within the scope of my state law with how I practiced, but state law and high paid attorneys cannot even protect you from chiropractic state boards and their ability to dictate your license. I truly believe their should be a giant uniform strategy to taking our profession back from the CCE and State Licensing Boards….

      My second, and probably my last novel, a futuristic one will be published in the near future. It may be helpful as you go about thinking and planning your response/actions. We are ony under the state board/CCE as long as they conform to he U.S Constitution. I believe the “original intent did not include usurping the role/objective in most states. However governements have made this into democracy (role of the majority), ignoring the Bill of Rights (of the minority). That’s how the 13th Amendment go through (ratified in 1865 after the end of the War and ‘laws” about freedom of religion, equal right can be ignored/established without a Constitutional Amendment being rescinded (think prohibition or a new one ratified. A democracy what we are now living under is at best a democracy or at worst an oligarchy(the CCE)

    Since a “democracy” is based on rule by the majority, and the majority are essentially idiots, unable to think an original thought, let alone understand it, what can you expect but that criminals among the few who can think always take over a democracy for their own benefit. That is the situation we have had for about 100 years now.

    Our Constitution was created for a Representative Republic. Until we can get back to that there is no hope.
