Re: The BMJ’s own patient journey
Society is stratified. Dictatorships have tyrants and victims; monarchies have royalty and commoners; governments have officials and citizens; military have officers and enlisted; hospitals have doctors and nurses; and businesses have bosses and workers. Stratification is a lopsided, stagnant system, in which a few fortunate people luxuriate in elitism, while many people vegetate in defeatism. Stratification devastates scientific progress and social justice by beatifying a few, but mortifying many. In short, stratification lacks science, conscience, and prescience.
