    Interestingly and coincidentially enough...
    Created in 1913, the Public Health Council was initially charged with adopting the State Sanitary Code. (Laws of New York, Chapter 559 of 1913). In 1970, legislation was enacted to transfer to the Council from the State Board of Social Welfare the responsibility for overseeing the establishment of medical facilities (Laws of New York, Chapter 617 of 1970). Subsequent changes in statute extended the Council's authority to approve the establishment of certified home health agencies, hospices, and licensed home care services agencies.

    The Council spearheaded initiatives to improve sanitary conditions and community health. Public health matters such as the polio vaccine, fluoridated water, the closing of tuberculosis hospitals, and hospital-acquired staphylococcus infections were among the varied issues the Council addressed over the years.
    The Council's powers and duties were set forth in section 225 of the Public Health Law. The Council, in partnership with the State Hospital Review and Planning Council and the Department of Health, was charged with overseeing the Certificate of Need process. It was responsible for reviewing and approving the establishment, and transfers of ownership, of health care facilities and home care agencies. The Council was also responsible for the promulgation of regulations under the NYS Sanitary Code. These regulations encompass communicable diseases, drinking water supplies, qualifications of health personnel, maternal and child health, food service establishments, environmental diseases, and AIDS. Pursuant to 2801-b of the Public Health Law, the Council also considers verified complaints submitted by physicians, podiatrists, optometrists, dentists, and licensed midwives whose hospital privileges were terminated, suspended or denied.
    Birth registration? Hospitals? Communicability or transfer of ownership of debt at birth by hospitals as a 'medical procedure'? Didn't the 14th ammendment have something to do with public debt?

    The Mental Deficiency Act 1913 was an act of Parliament of the United Kingdom which made provisions for the institutional treatment of people deemed to be "feeble-minded" and "moral defectives".[1] "It proposed an institutional separation so that mental defectives should be taken out of Poor Law institutions and prisons into newly established colonies."

    The Idiots Act 1886 made the legal distinction between "idiots" and "imbeciles". It contained educational provisions for the needs of people deemed to be in these categories. In 1904 the Royal Commission on the Care and Control of the Feeble-Minded was set up with the warrant "to consider the existing methods of dealing with idiots and epileptics, and with imbecile, feeble-minded, or defective persons not certified under the Lunacy Laws... to report as to the amendments in the law or other measures which should be adopted in the matter".[3] The Commission returned a lengthy report in 1908 which estimated that of a population of 32,527,843 British inhabitants 149,628 people (0.46%) were considered "mentally defective". It recommended the establishment of a board of control which would oversee local authority efforts aimed at "the well-being of the mentally defective".
    Winston Churchill spoke of the need to introduce compulsory labour camps for "mental defectives" in the House of Commons in February 1911. In May 1912 a Private Members' Bill entitled the "Feeble-Minded Control Bill" was introduced in the House of Commons, which called for the implementation of the Royal Commission's conclusions. It rejected sterilisation of the "feeble-minded", but had provision for registration and segregation. One of the few voices raised against the bill was that of G.K. Chesterton who ridiculed the bill, calling it the "Feeble-Minded Bill, both for brevity and because the description is strictly accurate". The bill was withdrawn, but a government bill introduced on 10 June 1912 replaced it, which would become the Mental Deficiency Act 1913.
    "Morally defective" as in having a 'presumed' penchant for unjust weights and balances?

    Could redeeming scrip or clearinghouse certificates for lawful money be a way of communicating sanity or moral non-defectiveness?

    We, the citizens of Lower East Manhattan, declare that this city is unsuitable for human development, child development and moral development. We, citizens of all classes, have suffered from deadly diseases such as cholera, tuberculosis, small pox and pneumonia at the hands of public officials who scoff at our sufferings. We believe that housing, politics, morals and health are all intertwined and without one, we would be quite at a loss. (from the first Report of the Council of Hygiene and Public Health of the Citizens' Association of New York circa 1865)

    It is very noteworthy that paper money and income tax always go hand in hand. This was repeated later in 1913 -- both paper money (Federal Reserve) and income tax came back simultaneously.
    That stands out to me too. Really cannot have one without the other. Back when Americans were paid in gold and silver if they started taxing incomes 20 to 30% the theft would be fairly obvious. If Americans used paper money without an income tax then inflation would run very high, making that currency undesirable to the point they'd stop using it. The income tax draws off, or siphons the wealth of the nation while most of the populace doesn't even realize it. The wealth landing in the banks and government.
