>Unclear On The Concept

20 Jan

>It turns out that problem with forcing government-run healthcare on us degenerate underclasses is that stupid old-fashioned definition of “freedom.”

You know, the one where freedom consists of being left alone? Tut, tut, we are told, “..let us not forget that we as a society created our government to make our choices…”

Y’know, I kinda didn’t; nor can I think of a single example where government intervention results in my having more uncoerced choices.

You will not be surprised to learn that this cool, rational philosopher-king is “is director of the Master in Public Health Program at Tufts University School of Medicine.” Nor that he considers ending fee-for-service medicine a “must.” Oh, boy, gimme a doc enjoying the same employment setup as an IRS auditor; I’m sure she’ll be deeply, deeply concerned about my health.

    >There's a lot of things I'm unclear about nowadays. Like for instance, demanding that the Federal government live within its Constitutional bounds makes one a racist.

    >That is simply scary…VERY scary. The convolutions of his logic are unbelievable. Denial of a free market, ignorance of the definition of a public good, total unawareness of individual responsibility and blissful avoidance of the concept of liberty.

    >Anybody using the phrase "…we as a society…" is engaged in an attempt to justify imposing his own preferences on others by force. No exceptions.
