The right screams at the prospect of letting government serve as a provider of health care with hyperbolic fear mongering over the gatekeeping of services (death panels, anyone). All the while, they squeal with delight while their vested corporate insurers serve to maximize profit, health be damned, if necessary.
Let’s add nutritious food and safe/dignified shelter to the mix. Humankind’s resources are most efficiently spent on the front end of health and environmental issues. We are quickly running out of time to continue to play hyper-capitalism’s tune. So many resources are bled off to planned obsolescence and middle men/women that add no value to humanity whatsoever. There is no more frontier to plunder. We have saturated the globe and reside in our wastes. The leadership must come from below, where the stench is strongest and the awareness is greatest. Good luck to us all!
