Starts as an economic analysis of selfishness and hits health care, the iPhone refund, customer service, and SUVs along the way. One of the many great quotes:
Every argument I have ever heard against socialized medicine has been idiotic. The biggest one I’ve heard is that we don’t want to lose the ability to choose our care, nor do we expect the government to provide us with the best level of care we could get. Guess what? You already don’t have a choice in the care you receive, and your quality of care has already been hampered. At least the government, big, blundering, stupid thing that it is, has to justify its actions in terms of benefit to you. What justification is there for my insurance company telling me I can’t go to a certain doctor, or that I can’t take a certain drug, or that I have to call them before I see my shrink because of whatever arbitrary set of rules will make them the most money?
This article is extremely long and extremely good. Don’t skim it - actually read it.
The author swears a lot. The title swears. Even the URL swears. If this offends you, I suggest that you suck it up and read it anyway. It’s really good.
