One question that I never see asked whenever the topic of health comes up is, “What exactly is a healthy person?”
Another might follow even before the first one is given an answer, and that is “What would a healthy society be like?”
To the second question it is easier as long as the answer is phrased in the negative. Example: “A healthy society would not just insure that their own citizens were guaranteed healthcare, but would also be free of aiding and/or abetting repressive nations/governments, nor would it attack/murder/torture innocents in any foreign lands.”
To suggest otherwise is the problem with “exceptionalism”, whether we’re talking about our country or any others.
Is a truly mentally healthy individual able to compartmentalize his own support for candidates/policies that kill innocent people abroad in military actions, yet simultaneously advocate for a better “medical system” on the domestic level?(Whether it is an argument for a “free market” or a “socialized system” etc. etc. is irrelevant at this level of questioning.)
And most important, how can anyone really know the full answer to any problem if they are not one with the universe, and thus know intimately everything? All answers that come will always – logically speaking – thus be partial answers, no?
