“Nothing exists until our violence creates it” – Progressives everywhere Retweet

Quote of the Day: “Every time we object to a thing being done by government, the socialists conclude that we object to its being done at all. Socialists [would even] accuse us of not wanting persons to eat because we do not want the state to raise grain.” Frédéric Bastiat

If you oppose tax-funded healthcare then left-statists say you oppose healthcare itself. If a country doesn’t have so-called single-payer then the left-statists judge it devoid of medical care.

So what should we call it when you go to the doctor and pay the bill out of your own pocket? A hallucination?

And what about the era before tax funding?

  • Were there no doctors and hospitals?
  • Did sick people die by the millions?
  • Or did people devise methods for funding healthcare without taxes and The State, even for the indigent?

Our old friend James Leroy Wilson answers the question in a fabulous article on the Zero Aggression blog, titled…

How people provided regulated healthcare without The State.

As the title suggests, Wilson covers not only the subject of how healthcare was funded but also how it was regulated without political involvement. He also shows how tax funding opens the door for politicians and bureaucrats to control ALL your behavior. Check it out, then share the article with others!
