Big Brother is Coming to Healthcare – How Hospitals are Entering Your Credit Card Info Into Algorithms
Saturday Jun 28, 2014
The article below is a great example of the unforeseen dangers of creating gigantic bureaucratic systems into which hundreds of millions of people are forced into involuntarily, i.e., Obamacare.
The moment you create a national system of healthcare is the moment everybody suddenly has this so-called “health responsibility” to everyone else. Which is fascistic and the opposite of freedom. Again, I don’t have an issue with human beings voluntarily organizing into whatever kind of systems they want. This brings me back to this idea that we need to move more toward city-states and decentralization as a means of human organization. If the people of Boulder for example want to have a city-wide healthcare system they devise, great. Let the people decide. If you don’t want to live under that, you can easily move to another city that does it differently. This idea that one healthcare system should be in place for a gigantic, culturally diverse land of 315 million people is childish, inefficient and, for lack of a better word, stupid.
Naturally, now that we have Obamacare all sorts of invasive things are going to be justified for the “greater good.” As Bloomberg notes in the important article below, you may soon be getting calls from your doctor about your personal habits thanks to credit card data mining. If people want to opt-in to such a system fine, but if this is imposed upon the population involuntarily, there is only one word to describe it: Tyranny.
