Health is a basic human need like water, food, shelter and air.

When you study Abraham Maslow's hierarchy of needs, physiological need is the basis, then you need love and belonging and safety. Then self-actualisation and affirmation.

When healthy people becomes unhealthy and sick they need medication. Psychological health is equally important as well as spiritual health.

When authorities ignore the health of their own people, they deprive us of a basic human right. Politicians are psychologically unhealthy or sick people and their thinking is not right and they have an erroneous conscience which leads to them doing things wrong.

How can a learned medical doctor who is the health minister just become another ordinary person? Did he take the Hippocratic oath to practice with due care and diligence, to care for a suffering patient? He should know better than the prime minister but is so ignorant.

The more they lie. The more we die.

The ABC reports that PNG's only radio therapy machine is unusable and the government has failed to legislate so that the radio active materials to fix it can be imported. Meanwhile people are dying of cancer.

I have said it before and I will say it again. There are three great mysteries of existence:

1. What is the meaning of life?

2. Where did we come from?

3. How does the Secretary for Health keep his job?

1. Nobody knows.

2. God knows.

3. Peter knows. - KJ
