In his interviews, historical reportage, and typical sarcastic wit, Moore soundly condemns American health insurance companies and pharmaceutical companies, as well as the politicians who have been paid millions to do their bidding. Most of these problems result from the corruption present in the American health insurance industry. Despite its flaws, I still think people should see the film, if only to start a discussion about how we should fix our healthcare system, and to make the health insurance companies sweat a little. For the past five years, the overall count has fluctuated between 41 million and 44 million people. This segment of the documentary mainly focused on the buildup of pathos and logos.
Our team investigated some of the claims put forth in his film. Logos- One of the bronchial medicines a woman was prescribed costs hundreds of dollars in the U. The first half of the film details the despicable way health insurance providers weasel out of paying claims, and how requests for treatment are denied for whimsical, capricious reasons. As it turns out there is free health care in the U. Along with ethos and pathos, these specific interviews also employ the device of logos.
How does that affect the way you view his films? Then what did he do? Divide the speech into sections. In Cuba, prescriptions cost a nickel! How much does Moore understand about the society he is criticizing? Moore then looks at universal free health care systems in Canada, France, Britain, and Cuba, debunking all the fears lower quality of care, poorer compensation for doctors, big-government bureaucracy that have been used to dissuade Americans from establishing such a system here. Then Michael explains that the movie is not about them, but the Americans who have health insurance. In 2003 nearly 15,000 people in France, the bulk of them elderly, succumbed during a heat wave. For all we know, Moore found the only 10 people in all of Canada who like the healthcare system.
This interview took place in France when Michael Moore interviewed a family and asked what their big expenses consisted of other than the expenses related to their house. Apparently, the most effective strategy against the targeted companies is exposure. He simply tells one story after another about Americans who are sick, dying or dead because we have an undemocratic, profit-gouging health care system. It is an item of faith in some circles that drug companies need their profits to finance research and development. Both the French and Canadian systems rank in the Top 10 of the world's best health-care systems, according to the World Health Organization.
It turned out that the tumor in the brain continued to grow, and she eventually passed away. The film Sicko deals with the ailing health care system in America, which is widely believed to be the most inefficient among advanced nations. At the end of their treatments, they leave the hospital without paying a single dollar. In America, employees of the government are examples of people that do not earn a lot of money. The latest numbers from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention say 43. The documentary provides an in depth understanding and analysis of the unceasing health care problems in America. All of the experiences that Michael Moore have in these three countries utilizes the device of logos.
Insurance, in law and economics, is a form of risk management primarily used to hedge against the risk of a contingent loss. Moore focuses on the private insurance companies and makes no mention of the U. Patients, doctors and pharmacists in Canada, Britain and France repeatedly explain to Moore that little or no money changes hands for medical services. Even the title is foolish. Michael Moore is able to get his message across to the public by incorporating the three rhetoric techniques of logos, pathos, and ethos. According to the Institute of Medicine, 18,000 people do die each year mainly because they are less likely to receive screening and preventive care for chronic diseases.
Sinclair masterfully demonstrates these in a speech featured in his novel, The Jungle. He relies mostly on anecdotal evidence, which is a great way to convince people who already agree with you, but not very compelling to skeptics. Who can possibly believe that providing decent health care for every American, which would mean taking on some of the most powerful and entrenched financial-corporate interests in the country, will be accomplished by either of the major parties or within the framework of the present political and social set-up? In America, employees of the government are examples of people that do not earn a lot of money. So what are you Doubting Thomases so worried about?! Some 4,000 to 5,000 people, many of them hemophiliacs, were infected and hundreds died. In France, he drives with one of many doctors kept on full-time house-call duty.
It is about time that someone did it. American health care, which American politicians renown to be one of the best in the world, is supposed to help the victims of health problems. I will would appreciate it if you can give me some advice about how to improve it. Sicko is disjointed and uneven, and breaks no new ground; Moore dwells on certain points, especially those he thinks will amuse, often cheaply, while passing far too quickly over major issues. In most other countries, there are quotas and planned waiting times.
