CERRITOS, Calif. (PRWEB) April 16, 2020
Recent release “We are all patients” (published by Xlibris) from Igwe Ukoha erases the artificial parameters of human illnesses and takes a closer look at the predicaments that have been antagonizing mankind.
“In the 21st century, humanity seems to be losing the virtues that make all of us humans,” the author states. “Restricting medical treatment to the physical and mental ilnesses as we traditionally do, ignores the commanding role played by greed, ignorance, selfishness, and indifference in creating the present human depravity. Utilizing these vices, we have generated a society that emphasizes individual wealth at the expense of our collective health.”
“We are all patients” is Ukoha’s attempt to identify and offer treatments for these predicaments. Presenting different case scenarios in the form of short stories, the author suggests that medical treatment should be expanded to include an enlightenment designed to tame human greed, ignorance and selfishness, and to promote the human oneness.”
“What happens when the present of strain of virus completes its global round? Do we settle back to the perennial epidemics of drug addiction, gun violence, obesity, and lack of health insurance, among others, as we await the next pandemic? Or do we educate ourselves and acquire the discipline to embark on the path to a lasting cure for the human condition?” These are the questions raised by the author.
