Series: Arguments for Universal Health Care

In June, Tim Weaver wrote a post called The Immorality of Fighting Universal Health Care on Brazen Careerist that sparked a firestorm of strongly opinionated comments, including from me. It’s something that has stuck in my mind given my strong interest in health and public welfare.

I decided to write a series of posts that explore arguments that market the need for adoption of universal health care beyond political ideological discussion. I think that some of the reasons get lost in knee jerk reactions and the horror stories from other countries. I am looking forward to some robust discussion about the topic.

Here is a preview of things to come:

1. The Moral Argument
2. The Economic Argument
3. The National Security Argument
4. The Consumerist Argument
5. The Inevitability Argument
6. The Demographic Argument

    Looking forward to reading your series. By the way, the post you link to is actually about the “immorality of fighting univeral health care,” and not about the immorality of universal health care. A big difference. 🙂 Anyway, looking forward to your posts.

    Thanks! Haha I fixed the mistake now. I really shouldn’t write while a little sick and tired. One word does make all the difference.
