Obedience to authority

In his famous experiment, Stanley Milgram showed that if there is contest between the voice of authority and one's individual conscience, then authority, to a dismaying degree, typically prevails. As Gregg Levoy puts it (Callings, Thorsons, 1997, p.219) "Just as the light of the cities obliterates the light of the stars, so the weight of other people's authority can block out the singularity of our own."

What I fear is happening is a steady compromising with the NHS by default. It is incredibly frustrating trying to deal with it.
