Worth ten thousand words

One of many reasons I don't buy into the "privatize or perish" mythology, nor do many other Americans when it comes to health care - including those reading magazines that profess the orthodoxy of "privatize or perish." Looking at the consequences of our own system, it is clear that we spend a hell of a lot more than any other nation on health care with less to show for it. In fact, our whole quality of life compared to much of the planet (including nations that are considered part of the 'developing', third world, or global south) is pretty damned poor. The system is very badly broken. Relying on the same old tired "solutions" isn't going to cut it.
