SiCKO - The American Truth

December 15, 2008

Filem dokumentari oleh penerbit kontroversi yang dilabel sebagai sosialis oleh kerajaan Amerika Syarikat. Dia ni banyak buat filem yang membuka mata orang ramai khususnya rakyat USA.

Kandungan filem ini membuat kita rakyat Malaysia setidak-tidaknya bersyukur dengan nikmat kemudahan dan bantuan perubatan yang sedia ada di negara kita. Tidak salah untuk kita memperelokkan apa yang ada tetapi adalah tidak adil jika kita menganggap negara maju seperti USA lebih memperjuangkan kebajikan rakyat sendiri.


Recommended to all my fellow friends who like documentaries esp. to Choy HH The Explorer
--------------------------------------------------

Writer/producer Michael Moore interviews Americans who have been denied treatment by our health care insurance companies -- companies who sacrifice essential health services in order to maximize profits. The consequences for the individual subscribers range from bankruptcy to the unnecessary deaths of loved ones.

Moore then looks at universal free health care systems in Canada, France, Britain, and Cuba, debunking all the fears (lower quality of care, poorer compensation for doctors, big-government bureaucracy) that have been used to dissuade Americans from establishing such a system here. The roots of those health care systems are explored, and our failure to establish free health here care is traced to a) President Richard Nixon's deceptive support of the then-emerging HMOs pursuing huge profits and b) subsequent pressures for Congress to sacrifice sound health care in favor of corporate profit.

A group of Americans who became ill from volunteering at 911 Ground Zero, but were refused health coverage for their illnesses, are ferried by Moore to Cuba, where they receive the top-rate, free care one would hope they'd get here at home.

In his interviews, historical reportage, and typical sarcastic wit, Moore soundly condemns American health insurance companies and pharmaceutical companies, as well as the politicians who have been paid millions to do their bidding. He makes the case that there is something wrong with Americans that we cannot learn from the successes of other countries in providing better quality-of-health than we enjoy in the USA.

1) "Yang paling best diorang ni siap pergi ke Guantamo Bay untuk minta rawatan sebab tahanan di sana memang diberi rawatan rapi. Kerajaan US nak tunjuk kepada dunia yang tahanan dijaga dengan baik, tidak ada yang sakit."

2) Kerajaan US dan medianya memang suka condemn negara lain terutama negara jirannya Kanada, tapi realitinya rakyat US sendiri sanggup dan terpaksa berpura-pura mempunyai pasangan rakyat Kanada untuk membolehkan mereka mendapat rawatan secara percuma.

3) Cuba mempunyai kepakaran dalam perubatan dan antara pengeluar ubat penting dunia. Rakyatnya menikmati kemudahan perubatan percuma dan bekalan ubat yang jauh lebih murah dari USA. Satu inhaler yang berharga USD235 hanya berharga USD0.05 di farmasi Cuba.

4) Michael Moore mendedahkan satu realiti yang boleh berlaku di negara kita sendiri. Harap-harap negara kita tidak menjadikan USA sebagai model dalam kebajikan rakyat.

5) General Healthcare perlu dijadikan keutamaan dalam sesebuah kerajaan.

6) Jangan cepat percaya propaganda kerajaan.
