Single payer would actually cost the American public less, although the money would flow thru govt as taxes instead of thru insurance corps as premiums.
What I'd really like is full coverage for all with market incentives for higher quality and lower prices, along with more competition. Do it by breaking up the biggest providers and while having the govt cover all costs, give people choice of provider and cash for lowering their annual costs (checkups don't count).
Politics are downstream from culture. And the culture is sick. https://t.co/0SGG8Jq5zF
Nationalist does not imply white nationalist. Democracy does not imply direct democracy. #TYFYC
I'm starting an "anti-propaganda" political party. Our symbol is the b&w silhouette of a stand-up comic. All the candidates pledge not to actually serve if elected, they just go around and get into debates and point out how you're being manipulated. https://t.co/tjO5k7NbEj
Everybody's getting what they needed to continue pushing their own narrative tonight. #ElectionNight
“The men whom the people ought to choose to represent them are too busy to take the jobs. But the politician is waiting for it. He’s the pestilence of modern times. What we should try to do is make politics as local as possible. Keep the politicians near enough to kick them. The villagers who met under the village tree could also hang their politicians to the tree. It is terrible to contemplate how few politicians are hanged.”
—G.K. Chesterton: ‘Cleveland Press’ interview
This was really good. What I'm still struggling with is defining better standards for acquiring knowledge. What should we expect from journalism and what more should we expect from papers from academia? Would more transparency, especially in academic journals, help? https://t.co/kXZ8GG5FdF
