Ayn Rand, 1 : Healthcare, 0

Here’s an apt quotation, relevant on a broad scale, and specifically to the warped reality of our red-tape-wrapped healthcare system:

“Civilization is the progress of a society towards privacy. The savage’s whole existence is public, ruled by the laws of his tribe. Civilization is the process of setting man free from men.”

Following this logic, one could assert that our current system is barbaric. Sure, it sounds dramatic at first. But when you think about it in Randian terms, the assertion gains a more solemn truth. And not only that, but it makes direct care feel a bit more civilized.

Thank you, Forbes, for sharing this Quote of the Day.
