If you have never had homeopathy, then let me explain how it works. Drink an alcohol-free German beer of any brand. The very small dosis of restly alcohol will give you a headache or swipsy feeling, sometimes feeling like 3 beers with alcohol. That´s it, a small portion hitting -medicinaly speaking- you hard. And that´s even paid for by the super socialistic medicine. What will Karl use the leftover money for?

Damn, I was just about to post the xkcd one! But yeah, do not fuck with homeopathy!


Hi Andrew!

Is this one of any interest:



Surely way more hilarious than any other, isn't it...


many of my otherwise intelligent friends swear by homeopathy and are deaf to the overwhelming evidence that they are trating themselves with sugarballs and water...I've given up on trying to convince them.
On another note, Germany ist not number one in prescriptions of homeopathic medicine and yes, even the US has a surprising number of converts. I think the numbers as well as an excellent summary of the puzzle of homeopathy can be found in this great Book http://www.13thingsthatdontmakesense.com/

I think that in an age where we are told that everything can be explained by science, alternative explanations are especially attractive precisely because science seems to be failing. Just a thought...


What will the Public Choicers make of this?

I support Lauterbach's move, but a legal change I would really support is outlawing the use of the word "Zweiklassenmedizin" (which is undoubtedly what you translate as "two-tier medication system") and all its derivatives. It is invariably used as The Argument to End All Arguments related to changing the health system. Indeed one might consider running for chancellor on a platform of outlawing medicine altogether. This might sound like a bad idea, but if you don't have Medizin, you can't have Zweiklassenmedizin, and we all know that's the Great Evil Satan to be defeated.

I came to post the exact same thing as Matthias. I thought it would be the comic you were linking to! :)



... somewhat related to this post, I think :-)
