      May be an image of 1 person and text that says '"CAPITALISTS SHOULD NEVER BE ALLOWED NEAR A HEALTHCARE SYSTEM. THEY HOLD SICK CHILDREN HOSTAGE AS THEY FORCE PARENTSTO BANKRUPT THEMSELVES IN THE DESPERATE SCRAMBLET PAY FOR MEDICAL CARE. THE SICK DOES NOT HAVE A CHOICE. MEDICAL CAREIS NOT A CONSUMABLE GOOD. WE CAN CHOOSE BUY A USEDOR NEW CAR, SHOP AT A BOUTIQUE OR A THRIFT STORE, BUTTHERE NO CHOICE BETWEEN ILLNESS AND HEALTH." CHRIS HEDGES'

      Not just health care.  They should never be allowed near utilities like energy, water, sewage, trash, and internet.

        add in our wilderness areas.

        On edit a friend of mine has a husband with pancreatic cancer – met her when she and I worked on Sanders’ 2016 campaign….Since then, she moved out of the area (from NH to North Carolina)…As we’re friends on f/b she’s walking us through her husband and family’s challenges – the treatment and reaction and then the financial stress which is as bad as the disease…..I’m sick reading about her challenges…..Her husband is just three years away from being eligible for Medicare…..

      Predominant orthodoxy says a healthy society must be subordinated to indulging greedy desires.

      Are you an atheist or something? The Market God has spoken.
