Defining a just society

Medicare for all

I've been less than thrilled with idea of letting the government take care of my health, but it's a system we already have in place, and spreading the risks and the buying power over all 300,000,000 of us is appealing. The government might even let the doctors decide what treatment we should get, instead of letting accountants with both eyes on the bottom line deside who gets what care.

Really, in a just society, would even a for-profit business take such bad care of its customers? I think not, so file this one under the heading of our collective self-defense, I guess.
