In the oldest of ancient times, we operated on the principle called, “Break a toe, you gotta go.” Because if you hold back the group, we’re all gonna die. That is essentially the position of modern healthcare system in America. If you’re gonna cost me money – it’s better that you die. You die of weakness, means more money for me. The faster sick people die, the more strong people exist in the world as a percentage of the whole. I can’t imagine helping people. I can’t imagine teaching people. I can’t imagine any better possible future than what we have now – me being healthy, and you suffering because I’m the better person because I’m more fortunate. Less of bad people, more of good people – nothing we can do about illness and inability. They slow down efficiency of the market.
As science advances, and culture reforms itself, it will become easier to maintain and maximize human health. What can good people do to help suffering people?
Overcoming death and ridding the world of suffering is a good ideal for society to actualize. Letting the weak and poor people die is not the right way to achieve it. We should consider this social dynamic when choosing the right healthcare policies, and other economic policies. Charity may make us all better off, even if the cost initially appears high. If society as a whole enables healthy life for all, then the cost of public healthcare will become smaller. The basic ethic of capitalism is, “We don’t care about people who don’t fit into our cult, and we can’t do anything for people who fail to make the team. Death is just god’s way of cleaning up.”
Letting people die because of high-cost is not adequate social policy. Euthanasia is an end of life issue for people suffering in terminal condition. It is not a general policy to hold against people experiencing poverty and illness. People in a constant state of resignation should not be holding public office. They should be helped.
Society should strive for perfection – beyond the ideal of social-darwinism – not inside its fascist boundaries. If the initial cost of transition to a healthy economy is high – but the public expenditure becomes less costly as life improves for everyone – then it is more than worthwhile.
What is does a successful public healthcare system look like? It is not one thing; it is not simply one institution. It’s a series of publicly funded institutions and programs.
So we should ask, “What are the parts of a complete healthcare system?”
Public access to basic healthcare services is part. This includes checkups and emergencies.
Public income pool for basic living needs is part. This is the style of unconditional UBI, no questions asked.
Shelter for the homeless is part. Basic temporary public housing options for emergency needs.
Public mental healthcare assistance, and sympathetic addiction treatment options, is part.
A drug court system, working with non-criminalized drug laws, is part.
The combination of all these parts leads every individual into expansive consideration of a variety of healthcare services, provided by public institutions for necessities and private practitioners for extravagant, experimental, or supplemental strategies.
Fair work-related economic policy is also part of a complete public healthcare. The ability to work fewer hours for more profit should be extended to everyone who wishes, not an exclusive opportunity for a privileged few at the top. We should recognize that any economic policy which results in most people working long hours for little pay equates to imposed illness. The set of economic policies we have now is resulting in imposed illness. It is unfortunate that cold war individualism has resulted in what the majority sees as another form of slavery.
