The government is forcing a completely new and untested medical technology into the bodies of children as young as 5 to benefit a rapacious pharma company known for unethical medical practices.
Do you still think that “single-payer healthcare” is a good idea? In neoliberalism, the role of the government is to facilitate the transfer of capital to the tiny transnational global elite while destroying welfare protections. What makes you think a reason won’t be manufactured to deny you healthcare for refusing to be a guinea pig for yet another experimental medication?
I understand (if not support) being for nationalized medicine 30 years ago. But things have changed. There is no longer anything that can be meaningfully called “a nation.” The government as a concept has mutated into something completely different from what it was last century. When is a good time to adjust your thinking in a changing situation? When is it time to notice that things are changing?
