    And I disagree, respectfully. Isn't there a bit of dangerous arrogance in the assumption that First World America could never go the way of Third World Venezuela, unlikely as such a monumental decline would be? Universal, government provided for healthcare is not a socialist apparatus, but rather an Infrastructurist interventionism; a nationalization of a pre-existing and necessary infrastructure previously dictated by a very free and often disadvantageous market. I do however agree with you that the everyman is lost to a degree in the disparity between the richest and poorest, and yet the ability to climb the social ladder is a fundamental tenet of American society, and one of great intersubjective value.

    And after 35 years GOP giveaway to the rich, we have the worst upward Mobility and inequality of any developed country. And happiness and everything else...
