Dr. Faria's revealing articles, "Public Health and Gun Control --- A Review (Parts I-II)," which have also been posted at NewsMax.com, are excellent and much of it news to non-medical professionals like me.
1) Is the AMA headed in the direction of becoming a self-funded organization, answerable to no-one, not even its membership --- rather like AARP?
2) Is the AMA headed in the same direction as the American Bar Association: headed toward a political black hole of leftist political activism, which turns off non-leftist professionals to the point where they resign or never join? This gives the leftist activists a positive feedback loop of ever more control over the organization, until it falls inside some Schwartzchild radius of professional irrelevance.
3) How many other professional organizations are doing the same thing?
Now there's a research article should anyone care to take the time to do it!
