DR. CASTONGUETTE (1)
Claude Castonguay, actuary, banker and insurer, privatises healthcare.
On February 19th, 2008, the Commission Castonguay report was making the headlines and announcing the end of free health insurance in Quebec. Beneficiaries learned that they would have to pay more for the public healthcare system, and even more for private services that would fill the gaps left by the first one. “A Shock-Treatment to Save Quebec’s Healthcare System,” could we read on the front page of the daily newspaper La Presse. What luck we have to use the expertise of a man such as Castonguay to rescue a healthcare system on the road to ruin!
As usual, our politicians – mere puppets on the “political scene” – made official declarations that were as variable as the colours of their parties. Union officials threw in their usual comments and journalists reported all that was publicly announced. But nobody seemed surprised that the founder of our present health insurance, the very creator of our perfect system, was the one who announced its demise. He did not shed any tears, show any regret, nor did he apologize. It is hard to understand why three different political parties entrusted Quebec’s healthcare system to the same person during all these years, in spite the repetitive failures he accumulated along the road. Nobody blames Castonguay.
By the way, who is Claude Castonguay ? He is an actuary, a banker and an insurer. He is also a member of the Trilateral Commission, a semi-secret society founded by David Rockefeller. This is where real decisions are taken concerning most countries’ policies, which are then diligently applied by their leaders. Castonguay has been in charge of Quebeckers’ health for the last 40 years. As the Minister of Health under the Liberal Party, he established a public monopoly that he claimed was the perfect solution for a free access to health for everyone. A few years later, under the leadership of the Quebecois Party, he instigated the Public Prescription Drug Insurance Plan. Shortly later, he proposed the privatisation of the whole system as he stood next to Mario Dumont, chef of the ADQ party. Today, Castonguay opens wide the doors to privatisation and organises the final private monopoly. The loop is looped. Hurrah!
Is it possible that we were had? That the only purpose of public health insurance was to create a public monopoly that was meant to be privatised later on? Well, it was a good idea, since the population would never have accepted a private health monopoly. Quebeckers said yes to a public monopoly because they believed that the word “public” was synonymous with “people”. Dr. Castonguette was the man who was designated to fulfill this agenda in Quebec. He is above political parties and above the law. He actually writes the laws and politicians execute his bidding, whatever the party they belong to. Once he instigated the public healthcare monopoly, he then added prescription drugs. All he needed to plan after this was a state of chaos in the health system. He organised budget cuts, reduced personnel, and called the private sector for help. Mission accomplished!
Notice that the same stratagem is used in most countries. Expenses are increased and services, decreased. The result is automatic – more profits. But where do these profits go? In the pockets of the real leaders of our world – international bankers. These are hidden behind the “political scene” and command strict obedience to all politicians.
We pay dearly for our ignorance and our unconsciousness. For the past millennia, we have been running from one disaster to the next and one bankruptcy to the next. Our healthcare system is one example among others. All systems are in the same state – very ill and doomed to die. They are in the image and likeness of their creators – sick and mortal human beings imprisoned in a world of illusion and deceit. Each dollar invested in health insurance aggravates illness and accelerates the ultimate outcome – death. Our present health system reinforces the underlying lie a little more each day. The truth is that we do not die from illness, but from fear and exhaustion.
In reality, death and illness do not exist. The problem is that we do not remember this. We are unlimited and immortal creatrix, but we have forgotten. We believe that we are poor, limited and mortal creatures. I create my own illness so I can feel the consequences of neglecting my true identity. Illness is always a gift. Why not welcome it and make peace with it, instead of fighting it and trying to get rid of it? It would be easier and much cheaper!
The rise and fall of the healthcare system simply reminds me of the world of illusion in which I live from birth to death. Illness – both my own and that of the healthcare system – call me to order and force me to evolve in consciousness towards the world of reality, where illness, aging and death to not exist. That is how I will one day discover heaven-on-earth, life-without-death. From the bottom of my heart, I thank the creator of Quebec’s health insurance system, Dr. Castonguette, for his active participation to this marvellous experience.
