I would suggest talking to nearly anyone from over 50 countries worldwide.

For instance, in England, I defy you to even find 1% of the population that would give up their NHS.

There are several things that should never be primarily “for profit”.

  • Healthcare
  • Childcare 
  • Education
  • Police
  • Fire
  • Ambulance

I would add Food and Water, and maybe even subsistence shelter. One thing at a time. No one can survive without food and water. The rule should  start like this.  

“If the item is required or they will die, society should cover the costs in the most efficient way possible.” 

Further discussion is needed to flesh out the idea, but it’s a start. 

As for the cost of education and healthcare, it’s not as expensive as you think. The bag of saline they hang on the rod next to the bed? Those typically cost the hospital about $1.  By the time it’s gone through the insurance company to you, that “explanation of benefits” shows a cost of $700.


Because insurance companies have to make a profit or they cease to exist and their shareholders can’t pocket money off of everyone’s misery.

Not only is our system the single most expensive, inefficient, and least fair way to provide healthcare to the citizens of the wealthiest nation on the planet, it’s also the most immoral.
