"The world has never seen such an outrageous violation of the oath taken by doctors to work for the good of their patients."

"Our starting point is not the individual, and we do not subscribe to the view that one should feed the hungry, give drink to the thirsty, or clothe the naked. . . . Our objectives are entirely different: We must have a healthy people in order to prevail in the world."
