Outsiders

How’s this sound?

“I don’t trust those establishment doctors. They’re all corrupt, pill-prescribing, pricks. I want to choose a doctor who is an outsider. Somebody who’s never been a doctor before because they will bring fresh new ideas to the practice.”

Sounds insane right? If somebody told you the above statement you would recommend that they see a psychiatrist… and not an outsider psychiatrist, but a professional one with time-tested proven techniques for treating whatever mental illness fueled the above statement.

How come then, do we hear basically that sentence every day in political news? Think about the value of professionals before voting for an “outsider” political candidate.
