Thanks, I agree.
Until the monetary system is reformed, we have no choice on so many things.
Once that is done, there then become available a lot of purely political
decisions, which can be made simply on practical considerations.
Such as, shall we have a totally (or almost) government funded health system as
in the UK, or one that is basically private, as I believe exists in the USA. In
other words, is Government going to fund this directly, or ensure that consumers
have the necessary power to purchase "health" as needed?
I am sure a topic like this could occupy as much time and space as this group
covers, so I have no intent of opening it up for discussion. But I could argue
for either side at length, using SC principles.
