Mandos permalink July 1, I think that if people knew the numbers, they would understand they were being conned, by their leaders, by the media, and above all by the insurance industry.
I do not share your confidence that people, when confronted with the evidence that they are being conned at such a scale, would react the way you seem to think that they would react.
Interestingly, the tide of public support for single-payer appears to have turned in recent months. A similar bill is anticipated for the Senate. There are two core Health care providers 2 essay in favor of single-payer, one moral which is basically the one the Democrats are employing in the Senateone economic — single-payer is cheaper long-term and gets better overall results in terms of morbidity and mortality.
Extremely interesting post, and equally-interesting comments. But the Clintons and other conservaDems managed to strangle that possibility for another quarter century.
This time around, Obamacare was deployed to suck up all the oxygen in the room, keeping topics like single-payer on the fringes.

Certainly not, you are right. That principled agreement, which is necessary to proceed, must be built through certain kinds of effort.
Effort that takes into account the opportunities that present themselves as they do. It is the major PR weapon of employers in most labor-management disputes. Most people hate the noise of political conflict and they hate even more the raw exposure of conflicts of interest.
I would not underestimate how easy it is for determined reactionaries, deluded in their libertarian bubble, to overplay their hand.
July 1, nihil obstet: We are social animals. Despite our love of the myth of the brave individual standing alone against error, we want acceptance, standing, and status within our group. We tend very strongly to adopt the opinions of our society. And it should, or else we would not have the bonds of agreement and affection that make us human.
We need to develop and advance an outlook of solidarity explicitly.
I see it as being like the fight for civil rights in the 50s and 60s. It took leadership and force to integrate public institutions and require equal treatment for all races.
Init was, as Lee Atwater explained in his infamous southern strategy interview. Although we have not reached a post-racist Eden, public accommodations cannot refuse service based on race and employment cannot overtly be denied on the basis of race.The Norwegian Health Care System - The health care system of Norway is committed to providing health care services for all citizens regardless of income and to the principle of equal access to services.
