So the US sadly is only a great place to live in when you're rich and healthy. Sadly Molly E. Holzschlag, a an author, teacher and Open Web Evangelist whom I learned from quite a lot back in the days lives in the US and is sick, she has cancer. Today she posted a blog post called: "This is the end, this is the end of the insurance" http://www.molly.com/2015/06/18/the-end-of-the-insurance/
Well marx shouldn't have told the richest what will happen if the wealth gap gets to big. Just like the french aristocracy, they would have never seen it coming. Now we are all enslaved to economics.
Evolution @ it's most fucked up
I don't want to like the post because I... Well, wrong thing, I don't like it. I agree that this is the really horrible part of this country and I'm afraid we are going there same way back home. This comment is because I do care and dislike it.
Imo: The American War of Independce against the Brittish had a core value of bringing freedom to the people, and mostly freedom from oppression (from the governement). While most first world countries have modeled their goverments after the USA and later reformed them to focus more on benefiting the people, the US still stay strong to that core value that the goverment should interfer as little as possible with peoples lifes. I believe this is one of the reasons a lot if people are against taxes and health care. They don't want a strong goverment on which they need to depend. Which is paradoxal considering the strong support of their very large military.
