Americans: Do you believe that a National Health Service is Communist, therefor evil?
Definitely not communist, definitely not evil. But a large minority of Americans garner their opinions in places sensible people would not trust as a storehouse for belly button lint. Our current medical care levels are the worst in the civilized world, by quite a bit.
But truth doesn't figure in this equation.
The American public has been spoon fed, at great expensive, a largely fictional tale of NHS/NPH systems, and many seem unaware that almost all single payer medical systems boast longer life spans and better overall health than the horrible hodgepodge of overpriced and underdeveloped care we call out "system". By exaggerating or just plain lying about what medicine is like in, say, Sweden or the UK or Germany (they got their system in 1871!!!) or selectively editing local problems such as a shortage of MRI machinery in Canada, they have the simpletons convinced they're all going to die.
This is stupid, but in the U.S. one can find a corrupt, slime maggot "pundit" to spew any level of fraud. And they regurgitate their canned insanity as many as 15 hours a week. A lot of ill-educated Americans don't like to read books or newspapers (too many words, apparently!) so rely on the propaganda filth on Fox and "hate radio" for their points of view.
I have friends all over the world who find our medical system absolutely unusable. And I know treatment and especially prevention is better in at least 25 countries.
But I have friends who think they'd be treated by a witch doctor with rattles and bones in far off, exotic Denmark, should they fall ill in such a place.
I no longer try to convince these reactionaries of anything. It is like talking to a long dead tree. Pointless.
They've been lied to so long, the imbecilic element is beginning to like it.
