Maybe just more up front, the Company will realize that the program is a deception More Doctors electioneering and the expectations generated by the brutal government marketing are unreal. For now the damage is done.

Resisting any suggestion regarding the public tender for creation of a federal career and labor rights, the government showed that whatever actually are doctors encabrestados insecurity of a bag, preferably Cuban, who has been subjected to a regulation Drake, which does not allow contact with the media or formulation of any termination of employment conditions, real horror for managers in an election year, as 2014 will be for Rousseff and Padilha.

But the appeal to bring doctors to places where they are not present, and the charm of the population with some assistance, even precarious and subject to errors, cemented in the importance of the imagination.

But if so, why the struggle of entities, leveraged misreported and perverse government, throwing us against the people? Because we have principles and when they are forgotten, we fall into the known quotation from Dostoyevsky - If there is no God (in our case that no principles) everything is possible.

We paid a high price, picked as Christ in the Passion, but do not give up. Councils exist to defend the ethics Associations to defend medical education, unions to defend workers' rights, and we all together to defend the security and safety of quality care to the Brazilian population.

These are principles that need to be sustained without negotiation, even when momentarily government, which imagines lord of all, can make society believe that the end justifies any means.

The question that arises and afflicts doctors is if the government won, if we lost, we expect now?

First, the government did not win, you win when you do it right. Things wrong, like slavery, wars, totalitarianism, only temporarily blind society. Second, that wins is the right side, the side of truth. It is only a matter of time and good being back. As said Ulysses GuimarĂ£es, the truth would not be true if it disappeared when choked.

She will again be imposed and the time of reckoning, for example the 2014 electoral process, maybe who was disappointed and cried (we, doctors) can smile and who knows, maybe who celebrated and smiled (you saw the photo Rogerio Carvalho and Padilha celebrating?) is the loser and get to cry.
