In my opinion, Socialism is totally appropriate in several environments

Healthcare
Transportation
Education
Utilities

to name a few

Americans react negatively to the word because of the strong propaganda they have been exposed to


On a related note, look into the eyes of an American and say the word Freedom sometimes. This word has been embedded with incredible meaning to Americans through our programming

I couldn't agree with you more Bryson (on both notes) socialism = communism propaganda in the states has produced a level of inability to understand the difference that as an outsider I find astonishing. And the Freedom meme has just taken on a life of it's own... wierd beyond belief

I would love for the U.S. to introduce free health care, then all the foreign freeloaders in this country might bugger off to the States instead. However, the U.S. will never do that, so I guess we're stuck with 'em. There, I've said it.

I would like to interject on behalf of healthcare in the USA. if you have the right insurance coverage it is far better than in the UK. You can choose your practitioner (as long as they are in scheme) and will be seen mostly straight away, the facilitites and care are typically better as well. I am sure that my experience in the UK where I was told I would have to wait c. two years for a procedure on the NHS or pay the very same doctor to have it immediately is not unique.

I believe in Universal Free Healthcare the same as I believe in World Peace. it's a great idea, makes perfect sense but is never going to happen.

I wish you good courage because courage will lead you to be a star and afraid will lead you to death. Be well and patient.

The problem is with the IF

"if you have the right insurance coverage "

I read somewhere that 50% of Americans do not have any health insurance. As a self employed contractor, "the right insurance coverage" is not available to me at any cost.

Waiting for two years for a procedure is a bad thing to be sure but realize that for n% of the population of America, the procedure is either completely unavailable or will lead to financial ruin.

On top of all this, consider the increase in Obesity (over 30% in some states) and the resulting increases in diabetes cases and you can start to frame a scenario in which America is in some pretty serious shit.

Once the baby boomers stop paying their income taxes and start using their pensions, a good few countries will be up to their neck in it.
