Practitioners are forced into draconian catch-22 dilemmas – dispense medical care as demanded by the Hippocratic Oath or obey the unethical demands of tyrants. Physicians who speak out publicly against official misinformation risk severe penalties that even include loss of licensure. In fact, physicians who dispute the official party line with medical truth are vilified by the media and accused of spreading disinformation.
