"They get care and are billed later."
good post, spoken like a true believer of Ayn Rand's philosophy.
And, like typical USA fashion: "me me me me me me"
"why should I pay for someone else".
"it's not my problem they got shot in the face".
Exactly. Exactly right there is your problem.
"as long as I get mine".
And this is USA vs. rest of the world. Which coincides perfectly with what it's perfectly ok for someone to go bankrupt in the USA due to medical bills. Cause it's not your problem.
United we stand. Divided we fall.
Ayn Rand is one of my favorite authors. Atlas Shrugged one of my absolute favorite books. My only problem with Rand is that she didn’t have better tact and explain herself better.
We would have less people like you taking her out of context.
If you want a better explanation of rational self interest. Might I suggest Human Action by Ludwig Von Mises.
Great post though, I can’t argue with all that sense you made there! I mean wow, “Murcia” I never thought of it that way! And AyN RaND is bAdd” wow. I’ll just take your word for it. I hate Ayn Rand now.
There are two kinds of people in this world. Makers and takers. You are just one of the takers and you justify it with this nonsense with a notion of selflessness. It isn’t selflessness to give away someone else’s money by taking it at gunpoint. It is virtue signaling.
It still isn’t my problem if someone I’ve never met gets shot in the face. It also isn’t my problem if they choose not to buy insurance. Make no mistake, it is a CHOICE. It isn’t my problem if they end up in medical debt because of their decision not to buy insurance. That’s what insurance is for, the unexpected, and I would never force them to buy insurance. That is their choice, not mine.
