I'm in pharmacy school right now.... I don't think there's anything inherently wrong with being in a profession that is heavily regulated, politically favored etc... My wife is a public school teacher, so the same goes there (we plan on homeschooling in a few years). I also don't think it's wrong to use public roads. There is natural, market driven need for healthcare professionals. There are real diseases out there and there is real need for medicines, even chronic medicines (but a WHOLE lot less than what Big Pharma would have America believe)...
I go to a private college of pharmacy and even it is little more than a CDC, FDA, WHO propaganda machine.. I hear so much junk in class - political, science, clinical, etc - and it's frustrating that most of my classmates just soak it up without critical thinking (but the Liberty Revolution DOES have a presence in my class and doubtless several others).. But I want to be involved as much as I can as a pharmacist in pushing correct ideas. I want to be involved with our state association so that they will lobby for things that are good (deregulation) and stop lobbying for things that are bad (protectionism).
Without health professional licensure requirements/restrictions, we would see a very efficient blend of nursing, pharmacy, physician, etc where individuals would blend the expertise of every field as they needed to improve their competitiveness in the job market that met the demands of patients...Every body should learn how government intervention is blocking progressive growth of their fields and advocate for freedom within their realm of influence.
"You must be frank with the world; frankness is the child of honesty and courage...Never do anything wrong to make a friend or keep one...Above all do not appear to others what you are not" - Robert E. Lee, CSA
