Written from the perspective of a 22nd Century, American School Teacher teaching social history, of the USA; during the 20th and 21st Centuries. The ‘Triangle of Life’ became connected with the Obama Heath Care Debate.
The tragedy of ‘duck and cover’ during the later part of the 20th Century and beginning of the 21st Century was the 200,000 lives lost per year to maintain American Insurance Company profits. Insurance Company profits were considered more important than children’s lives. School Boards were faced with the Insurance Company demand of maintain ‘duck and cover’ or your premium’s will increase or we will not cover you, at all. School-Boards decided that it was less trouble and cheaper if schoolchildren were allowed to die.
At this time, in History, The Insurance Company Executive’s worst nightmare was a child who became sick, injured or traumatized as a result of a ‘loss’ occurring at an insured school board’s property. Sick children were the costliest expenditure that an insurance company can have; requiring, a life time of potential payments or financial loss.
The potential problem of Corporate Financial Loss became reduced; in other words, Schoolchildren became ‘cheaper and less trouble’ if they were immediately killed rather than requiring treatment or compensation. The decision was made to follow the same policy as eliminating children from medical coverage, after they became sick. If a loophole could be found to cancel a child’s medical coverage, it was considered to be worthy of a ‘bonus’ on the paycheck of an Insurance Company Elimination Specialist.
At this time, in History, civilization and the value of human life had not developed, to the point, that human life was considered to be more important than Insurance Company profits. American Insurance Companies had concluded that actuarial realities would dominate. It was more profitable if children were allowed to die during building collapse. The cost of a dead child was finite, concluded and insignificant.
The cost of treating a child who survived by using the ‘triangle of life’ was prohibitive. The cost of treating a child for either trauma and/or physical injury would be combined with compensation being sought from the School Board Insured. School Boards were not willing to pay the increased cost of premiums for surviving children. It was decided to continue ‘duck and cover’ and ‘cover-up’ the profit motives and other Corporate malfeasance. This resulted in the death of more than 25 million children before it was stopped.
A brief History of ‘duck and cover’ explains more. ‘Duck and cover’ was created by Archer Productions, a Madison Ave Marketing firm under contract with the Pentagon. It was NOT created by safety, health or rescue experts. They had no input. It was created by a propaganda advertising firm.
The mass hysteria of the population of the USA had resulted in many irrational and illogical acts. many people built their own home bomb shelter. This was considered a ridiculous act when it became widely known that a ‘nuclear winter’ would result in Air Contamination and Extreme Cold; both of which would prevent survival even if the initial blast was survived. Building private bomb shelters wasted billions of dollars; however, it’s ‘harm’ ended in just a waste of money. ‘Duck and Cover’ was different.
‘Duck and Cover’ was created to calm the people that they would be safe from an atomic bomb blast if they just dropped to the ground and covered their head with a newspaper or a blanket. Archer Productions produced these aka ‘Bert the Safety Turtle’ commercials. Duck and Cover became insidious when it was taken into the classroom. This propaganda was brainwashed into the mind of every American Schoolchild. The other countries of the world followed America’s lead; since, America was the most dominant culture and economy, at the time. Even though, some of these countries did not have Insurance Company Corporate Concerns, for ‘shareholder profit’ because they either had Universal Health Care or law suits (corporate liability was not accepted) America’s social and cultural dominance slowed down their acceptance of the ‘triangle of life’.
‘Duck and cover’ resulted in a loss of 200,000-300,000 lives per year.
Doug Copp, discovered ‘the triangle of life’ when he crawled inside of collapsed schools and saw what actually happened..who lived and who died. Doug had been the most experienced rescuer, in the world, prior to becoming permanently disabled, from his injuries. He shifted the focus of his life. Since, he could no longer rescue people buried alive, he decided to follow the lead of Luther and other individuals who considered that their principles and their conscience were more important than their safety, comfort, material well being or their life. Doug created a website and blog with hundreds of documents, videos and other proof to support the ‘triangle of life’.
As usual among people, who interfere with Corporate profits, on such a large scale, Doug Copp endured death threats, slander, abuse and much more from the vested interests who saw ‘duck and cover’ vs ‘the triangle of life’ as an extension of Obama’s Health Care Program. In other words, Corporate profits VS human life. American Insurance Companies, prior to Obama Health Care had dropped children from medical care coverage because of pre existing conditions. They were saving the same kind of dollars by maintaining ‘duck and cover’ and stopping ‘the triangle of life’.
This was nasty, once children became sick the American Insurance Companies would hire detectives, lawyers and specialists to find loop holes so that they could drop the child from coverage even if the parents had faithfully paid premiums, for years. This policy saved the American Insurance Companies vast sums of money which could be diverted from the expenditure column into the profits column.
The same policy was enforced against schoolchildren. Schoolchildren were told to duck and cover so that they would not negatively impact Corporate shareholder profits, by living.
The Triangle of Life followed the path of all truth and eventually became widely accepted. The ‘triangle of life’ started spreading around the world, as a viral email, then it became accepted by the most intelligent and powerful people, of the world, for their own safety and protection; however, it was not allowed to become more important than Corporate Profit until schoolchildren’s deaths reached more than 25 million. ( 1,000 schools collapsed in 2010, alone)
**It is sad to note that the Premises for the logarithms, designed to analyze, the actuarial risk conclusions, for the risk analysis regarding ‘triangle of life vs ‘duck and cover’ were incorrect. The Insurance Companies assumed that the number and cost of survivor injuries; as a result, of following the ‘triangle of life’ would be the same as the number and cost of the injuries of pre ‘triangle of life’ survivors or ‘duck and cover’ survivors. In other words that the injuries factor (co-efficent of injuries) would remain constant.This was a false presumption. (The actual number and cost of ‘triangle of life’ survivors is 1/10 of the cost of ‘duck and cover’ survivors. ‘Triangle of life’ injuries are much less frequent and/or as serious as ‘duck and cover injuries.) The profitability of ‘triangle of life’ further increased when considering the fact that 90% of victims would survive, requiring no death compensation vs ‘the payout’ for ‘duck and cover’ deaths, at 90% dead.
As History unfolded,the American Insurance Corporations, using ‘the triangle of life’ vs the ‘duck and cover’, victim response procedures; would reduce it’s ‘payouts’, for death compensation from 98% of schoolchildren dead and requiring death compensation; to 10% requiring death ‘payout’ compensation regarding the ‘triangle of life method.
When the saving from death payouts and the ‘real life’ costs of ‘triangle of life’ injuries were calculated it was found that the actuarial costs of a ‘triangle of life’ policy was not prohibitive. Combined with the positive advertising and marketing opportunities presented by saving so many school children lives the Insurance Companies found the replacement of ‘duck and cover’ by ‘the triangle of life’ to be a net financial gain.
In our next class, we will discus the downfall of one of America’s most media savy corporations. The American Red Cross; in spite of, a long history, of facing lawsuits for theft, fraud and keeping billions of dollars of donations yearly, for their own enjoyment, collapsed because the people discovered the malfeasant role they had played with their (American Insurance Corporations) Corporate Partners.
Prior to their collapse, they had been known among the media industry as the most effective organization, in the world, at collecting donations; through their 3 billion dollar per year media blitz. The media savy overcame the incidental reports of theft, fraud and corruption that followed every disaster/financial campaign. Actor Sean Penn complaining of theft from Haiti donations was just another in a long string of ARC scandals. David Letterman, Jay Leno, Joan Rivers and others had complained about the 6 billion stolen from Victims of . The Governor of Minnesota-floods, the mayor of San Francisco…earthquake…the Fire Storm scandal of San Diego no scandal couldn’t be overcome by the ARC 3 billion per year media campaign…continued.
A comment from doug copp Jan 23 rd 2011:
Last week, an American Red Cross Exectutive asked to join my rescue team; so that he could be trained. He thought it would benefit him to know something about disasters. I responded to him with a question: I asked him what he could possibly do to change the American Red Cross Corporate Policy of supporting ‘corporate’ profits, at any price; that is, by supporting ‘Duck and Cover’. I told him that more people die; as a result of, ‘duck and cover’ than all the lives saved, by all the rescue teams, in the world combined.
If the American Red Cross would do the right thing and support the triangle of life it would save more lives than all the efforts, of all the rescue teams, throughout the world..combined..
His response: he never responded.
