You said: “Why they weren’t organized to protest bailouts of the “too big to fails” shows the fact that people don’t organize like this unless they are given a script to follow.”
Some blame must be placed on the nation’s education system; but at some point humans must accept personal responsibility; those who have made the choice to accept and believe the script have long since abdicated responsibility for their existence on this planet: Hence the “what’s in it for me” mentality on exhibition at these “town hall” meetings.
Any reformation in healthcare, however, will not fix the “system,” for example; you mentioned HMO’s or PPO’s for that matter, the cost of becoming an MD in this country is so prohibitive that graduates, unless they are a member of the Bush class, have no choice but to register with one of these agencies, so how does one avoid them?
Most first year residents are a long and mountainous debt away from establishing their own private practice in their own communities.
At Dundee, in Scotland, Great Britain, one of the best medical schools in the world; becoming a doctor merely requires intelligence, aptitude and citizenship.
Meanwhile back in these United States there is talk of privatizing, the public education system.
