Venki Sir has brought up an exciting topic to discuss. A bit of history will help to put some more light on the topic.
It was Egypt and Mesopotamian civilizations that brought the concept of communal healing. People were allowed to come to a "commonplace". These places were having all sorts of treatment options, prevalent at the time. Most of the time, it was the temples where people were brought to get better. Then the Byzantine civilization built "Xenodocheia". These were the hospitals of the 4th century AD.
Then came the monks and monasteries. Monks and nuns took care of the sick within the monastic communities. They were known as almshouses. Almshouses were funded by charitable donations and low-cost or free treatment was provided to the sick, poor and elderly.
In modern times, medical treatment, and traditional and complementary healing practices are advancing at such a greater degree of speed, that, as you rightly said, it has been impossible to provide all modern advancements at a time.
This has brought the feeling of indifference because modern medicine and high-level technology have high costs. This makes it unavailable for the needy and poor people. Unfortunately, they start to weaken. For the diseases of today, old forms of treatment are unable to help cope.
Also with education, new ways of offering knowledge is not available in the basic schools, schools from municipality and governments. Moreover, salaries for teachers decide (to a large extent) whether they are loving and caring; or are they stubborn. Every parent can't provide high costly education where all things are bells and whistles.
I feel the power of paying money decides whether a particular service is of high value or is of demeaning nature.
