Healthcare Mesmerism
American Thinker ^ | 4/21/2014 | Deane Waldman

President Obama’s healthcare reform is roaring success. Dr. Mesmer tells us so.  

In the late eighteenth century, a physician named Franz Mesmer proposed the existence of an energy that could pass from inanimate objects to living organisms, such as animals and humans. He called this unseen force “animal magnetism.” Forty years later, his theory formed the basis of what we now call hypnosis. In his honor, 19th-century hypnotherapists first named the technique mesmerism.

Mesmerism has become shorthand for persuading people that something is true when in fact it is false. Using mesmerism, black is white; good is baaad; “Freedom is slavery; War is peace; and Ignorance is strength” (from Orwell’s 1984.)

Deploying a strategy of mesmerism, Washington has tried to convince us that their PPAHCA treatment of poor sick patient Healthcare is a reform, a change for the better. Their approach is poisoning the patient. Then they use mesmerism to make us believe that PPAHCA:  protects patients; is affordable; and will increase access to health care.

Beware! Do not be fooled. Don’t let them misdirect or mesmerize you.
