Latest ABIM / Baron attack

writes Washington State physician Ken Lee, MD:

The latest campaign by the ABIM against Internists is using lay people to criticize and judge “board certified” MDs by adding lay people to the board member ship of the ABIM. So a high school dropout with dementia can be an ABIM board member and judge working MD’s honestly.  It appears this Baron of ABIM has been reading Maoist history. During the dark ages of the cultural revolution in China from the mid 1960 to 1970, the Communist Party there decided to destroy intellects as society enemies; trained doctors were made to clean toilets while high school students learned how to be doctors by trial and error on people! The ABIM is trying to destroy us in a similar fashion which increases their power, just like Mao who destroyed the educated class to ensure his total power.  Seem similar?
