Writer's Block: Health Care

Is health care a right or a privilege to you?

This isn't really much of a question because I cannot imagine people arguing that it is a privilege. You might as well ask 'Is oxygen a right or a privilege to you?' or 'Is not being decipitated a right or a privilege to you?'. The more important question that you should be asking is "Is tennis a right or a privilege?" Okay that question is nonsense but at least I think it has the potential to divide the people who answer it. To not just make everyone give you the same answer.

Believe me, I've met people who will argue it's a privilege. Of course, they also happen to be the most horrible people I've ever met, so it's not altogether surprising.

The whole basis of their reasoning is Social Darwinism - that society exists to weed out weak individuals. It's fucking bullshit, and I told them so. I also told them that I hope they never have to rely on human kindness when they suffer a serious blow to their lives, given their absolute lack of compassion - and they claimed to be Christian as well.
