The church of medicine

organised medicine has practically ceased to be the art of healing the curable, and consoling the hopeless and has turned into a grotesque priest hood concerned with salvation and has become a law onto itself. The policies that promise the public some control over the medical endeavour tend to overlook the fact that to achieve their purpose they must control a church, not an industry.

P249
Ivan Illich
Medical nemesis.

Wonderful quote that is forming the question for my dissertation even as I read it.
