uspol - the empty promise of universal healthcare 

we ought to stop demanding universal healthcare from the state and just fucking do it ourselves

do you seriously think jeff bezos and bill gates are gonna put some money aside to the state for your health as a replaceable worker in what they view as an increasingly overpopulated world? The U.S. government is openly controlled by people who answer to fuckers who are even more sick and selfish than them, even. I don't think voting "pretty please" will change the minds of the rich and powerful who decide which political figureheads you get to select. Their legitimacy has to be threatened somehow.

@thufie that debate and the discourse in general makes me physically ill. the whole "theyre taking your private insurance away" and shit like 'they want to nationalize hospitals". i honestly have lost all faith in the population since they cant see how this is obviously a grift. just like "access to healthcare"

@thufie also straight up lying. single payer doesnt mean the big bad gubberment owns all the hospitals.

@frickhaditcoming its almost like the discourse is crafted by rich fucks who don't want to pay taxes and can focus the direction of political debate down the path most conducive to producing division and circular arguments as political spectacle to distract from people actually changing the world.

@thufie 🤔 maybe someone should do some research and maybe write a book about that
