Truth Serum

"The truth as an offense, but not a sin." Bob Marley Lastweek (March 23, 2010), President Barack Obama signed into law Healthcare(insurance) reform after it successfully passed in the United StatesCongress on Sunday, March 21st. What it means as you haveprobably read in the paper is that a lot more people will eventually be able to have healthcare coverage and health plans will have a few newrestrictions that will aid in them being somewhat more balanced as faras covering people's needs is…See More

Staying under the radar. . .

Frankly, I am not sure what is worse for an organization, especially a healthcare organization: a disengaged employee or a disengaged employer.Both are accountable for each other's circumstance. And if I was a betting man, I would bet that it is very difficult (perhaps impossible), in aggregate to say in which direction the disengagement came/comes from. It doesn't really matter who was the chicken or the egg. What matters is what it creates--individual and organizational suffering.Now, this…See More

Passion and Reason

When we get down to the business of organizational transformation the road to success is difficult at best. If we desire for the principles of inclusion and cultural competence to be central to transformation the difficulty can be exacerbated.Most people I know have some type of passion in life. This passion is coupled and/or often met with the energy of reason.In the the classic book, The Prophet by Khalil Gibran, the speaker says about Reason and Passion:"Your reason and your passion are the…See More

Jim Canto - medXcentral commented on Amri Johnson's blog post Cynics and Possibility
"Thought provoking post, Amri. I'm caught in the middle as to whether I value my inner cynic or whether I should imprison him in a dark corner of my soul and shut him up for good. I can be very cynical... and I think that quality has helped me…"

Cynics and Possibility

I often envy cynics. In the midst of change they can so easily begin their critique of the current realities. Or they can take a premise (the central idea of any breakthrough innovation) and dismantle it purely based on their past-based data and understanding alone.In the past my orientation to the cynic went somewhat like this: In scathing displacement they deftly spin their cocoon, a blanket of protection which ironically seems to be woven in resistance to the transformation that deep down,…See More

Everyone's at Fault-Everybody's at Risk

In the healthcare insurance and healthcare reform debate (I consider the financial side a part of overall reform, but it is not the complete picture of reform) there are obviously sides that have been taken.On one side is the "'we need universal healthcare', 'we need a so-called 'public option'; 'healthcare is a right not a privilege', 'those bad health insurance companies are bringing us all down,'" contingency. You are familiar with this side or you subscribe (at least in part) to it so you…See More

Health care reform: Is it all about costs?

Original post: September 7, 2009 at Diversity HealthWorksThere is one mystery - yea-ea-eah - I just can't express:To give your more, to receive your less. Bob MarleyThe conversation about health care reform has lead all of us to ask the question: how much will this cost? It is a very important question and one that has to be addressed every step of the way. What this leads one to think is that the concern that opponents have…See More

Parrots and Protectionism: Healthcare Reform and American Society

Posted on August 20, 2009 at 7:59am 3 Comments

"Most people would rather die than think; in fact, most do so"

Bertrand Russell



Critical is not something that my closest friends would consider me. Today I will contradict that sentiment.



The realities of healthcare reform are still not clear to most Americans. While the factions that have emerged from each pole from Universal Coverage to Anti-Reform (aka "keep things like they are they are good/comfortable for ME right now") the clarity on either side… Continue
