Those who need to protest and even strike against such an abuse of power are the medical doctors themselves. If they won't, it means just like under an other previous dictatorial regime, that they adhere to the idea... I read recently a very interesting book about the topic written by Robert N. Proctor: "Racial Hygiene - Medicine under the Nazis". We may substitute for our intents and purposes the word "racial" with an other term such as "people", "NewYorkers", or any other word of your choice.

New York’s penal code makes it a felony to practice medicine without a license. I suspect, however, that one potential defendant who is proposing to do just that, will escape prosecution. Meet “Mayor Bloomberg, M.D.”

New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg never attended medical school, did not complete a hospital residency, and never has been admitted to the medical profession. Yet this public official – whose ire in recent years has targeted firearms, salt content, fatty foods, and large-sized soft drinks – is now moving to dictate how doctors should be allowed to issue prescription drugs for their patients.

Bloomberg’s limits...
