Welcome to the town of Allopath


There once was a town called Allopath. It had many people, streets and  cars, but due to budget limitations, there were no stop signs or traffic lights anywhere in Allopath.

 Not surprisingly, traffic accidents were common. Cars would crash into  each other at nearly every intersection. But business was booming for  the auto repair shops and local hospitals, which dominated the economy  of Allopath.

 As the population of Allopath grew, traffic accidents increased to an  alarming level. Out of desperation, the city council hired Doctor West, a doctor of the Motor Division (M.D.) to find a solution.

 Dr. West spent days examining traffic  accidents. He carried an assortment of technical gear --  microscopes, chemical analysis equipment, lab gear -- and put them all  to work as part of his investigation. The townspeople of Allopath  watched on with great curiosity while Dr. West went about his work,  meticulously documenting and analyzing each traffic accident, and they awaited his final report with great interest.

 After weeks of investigation, Dr. West called the people of Allopath to a town meeting for the release of his report. There, in front of the city council and most of the residents of Allopath, he announced his  findings: "Traffic accidents are caused by skid marks."

 As Dr. West explained, he found and documented a near-100% correlation  between traffic accidents and skid marks. "Wherever we find these cars  colliding," he explained, "we also find these skid marks."

 The town had "Skid Marks Disease," the doctor explained, and the answer  to the town's epidemic of traffic accidents would, "...require nothing  more than treating Skid Marks Disease by making the streets skid-proof," Dr. West exclaimed, to great applause from the townspeople.

 The city paid Dr. West his consulting fee, then asked the good doctor to propose a method for treating this Skid Marks Disease. As chance would  have it, Dr. West had recently been on a trip to Hawaii paid for by a  chemical company that manufactured roadaceuticals: special chemicals  used to treat roads for situations just like this one. He recommended a  particular chemical coating to the city council: teflon.

 "We can treat this Skid Marks Disease by coating the roads with teflon," Dr. West explained. "The streets will then be skid-proof, and all the  traffic accidents will cease!" He went on to describe the physical  properties of teflon and how its near-frictionless coating would deter  nearly all vehicle skids.

 The city council heartily agreed with Dr. West, and they issued new  public bonds to raise the money required to buy enough teflon to coat  all the city's streets. Within weeks, the streets were completely  coated, and the skid marks all but disappeared.

 The city council paid Dr. West another consulting fee and thanked him  for his expertise. The problem of traffic accidents in Allopath was  solved, they thought. Although the cure was expensive, they were  convinced it was worth it.

 But things weren't well in Allopath. Traffic accidents quadrupled.  Hospital beds were overflowing with injured residents. Auto repair  businesses were booming so much that most of the city council members  decided to either open their own car repair shops or invest in existing  ones.

 Week after week, more and more residents of Allopath were injured, and  their cars were repeatedly damaged. Money piled into the pockets of the  car repair shops, hospitals, tow truck companies and car parts retailers.

 The town economic advisor, observing this sharp increase in economic  activity, announced that Allopath was booming. Its economy was healthier than ever, and Allopath could look forward to a great year of economic  prosperity!

 There were jobs to be had at the car repair shops. There were more  nurses needed at the hospital. "Help wanted" signs appeared all over town at the paramedic station,  the tow truck shops, and the auto glass businesses. Unemployment dropped to near zero.

 But the traffic accidents continued to increase. And yet there were no  skid marks.

 The city council was baffled. They thought they had solved this problem. Skid Marks Disease had been eradicated by the teflon treatment. Why  were traffic accidents still happening?

 They called a town meeting to discuss the problem, and following a short discussion of the problem, an old hermit, who lived in the forest just  outside of Allopath, addressed the townspeople. "There is no such thing  as Skid Marks Disease," he explained. "This disease was invented  by the roadaceuticals company to sell you teflon coatings."

 The townspeople were horrified to hear such a statement. They knew Skid  Marks Disease existed. The doctor had told them so. How could this  hermit, who had no Motor Division (M.D.) degree, dare tell them  otherwise? How could he question their collective town wisdom in such a  way?

 "This is a simple problem," the hermit continued. "All we need to do is  build stop signs and traffic lights. Then the traffic accidents will  cease."

 Without pause, one city council member remarked, "But how can we afford  stop signs? We've spent all our money on teflon treatments!"

 The townspeople agreed. They had no money to buy stop signs.

 Another council member added, "And how can we stop anyway? The streets  are all coated with teflon. If we build stop signs, we'll waste all the  money we've spent on teflon!"

 The townspeople agreed, again. What use were stop signs if they couldn't stop their cars anyway?

 The hermit replied, "But the stop signs will eliminate the need for  teflon. People will be able to stop their cars, and accidents will  cease. The solution is simple."

 But what might happen if stop signs actually worked, the townspeople  wondered. How would it affect the booming economy of Allopath? Realizing the consequences, a burly old man who owned a local repair shop jumped  to his feet and said, "If we build these stop signs, and traffic  accidents go down, I'll have to fire most of my workers!"

 It was at that moment that most of the townspeople realized there own  jobs were at stake. If stop signs were built, nearly everyone would be  unemployed. They all had jobs in emergency response services, car repair shops, hospitals and teflon coating maintenance. Some were now sales  representatives of the roadaceuticals company. Others were importers of  glass, tires, steel and other parts for cars. A few clever people were  making a fortune selling wheelchairs and crutches to accident victims.

 One enterprising young gentleman started a scientific journal that  published research papers describing all the different kind of Skid  Marks Diseases that had been observed and documented. Another person, a  fitness enthusiast, organized an annual run to raise funds to find the  cure for Skid Marks Disease. It was a popular event, and all the  townspeople participated as best they could: jogging, walking, or just  pushing themselves along in their wheelchairs.

 One way or another, nearly everyone in Allopath was economically tied to Skid Marks Disease.

 Out of fear of losing this economic prosperity, the townspeople voted to create a new public safety agency: the Frequent Drivers Association  (FDA). This FDA would be responsible for approving or rejecting all  signage, technology and chemical coatings related to the town's roads.

 The FDA's board members were chosen from among the business leaders of  the community: the owner of the car shop, the owner of the ambulance  company, and of course, Dr. West.

 Soon after its inception, the FDA announced  that Skid Marks Disease was, indeed, very real, as it had been carefully documented by a doctor and recently published in the town Skid Marks  Disease journal. Since there were no studies whatsoever showing stop  signs to be effective for reducing traffic accidents, the FDA announced  that stop signs were to be outlawed, and that any person attempting to  sell stop signs would be charged with fraud and locked up in the town  jail.

 This pleased the townspeople of Allopath. With the FDA, they knew their  jobs were safe. They could go on living their lives of economic  prosperity, with secure jobs, knowing that the FDA would outlaw any  attempt to take away their livelihood. They still had a lot of traffic  accidents, but at least their jobs were secure.

 And so life continued in Allopath. For a short while, at least. As  traffic accidents continued at a devastating rate, more and more  residents of Allopath were injured or killed. Many were left bed-ridden, unable to work, due to their injuries.

 In time, the population dwindled. The once-booming town of Allopath  eventually became little more than a ghost town. The hospital closed its doors, the FDA was disbanded, and the Skid Marks Disease journal  stopped printing.

 The few residents remaining eventually realized nothing good had come of Skid Marks Disease, the teflon coatings and the FDA. No one was any  better off, as all the town's money had been spent on the disease: the  teflon coatings, car parts and emergency services. No one was any  healthier, or happier, or longer-lived. Most, in fact, had lost their  entire families to Skid Marks Disease.

 And the hermit? He continued to live just outside of town, at the end of a winding country road, where he lived a simple life with no cars, no  roads, no teflon coatings and no FDA.

 He outlived every single resident of Allopath. He gardened, took long  walks through the forest, and gathered roots, leaves and berries to feed himself. In his spare time, he constructed stop signs, waiting for the  next population to come along, and hoping they might listen to an old  hermit with a crazy idea:

 ...that prevention is the answer, not the treatment of symptoms.
