u/Mr_niceguy0 Feb 02 '23

Not to be controversial but there are many valid criticisms about public healthcare, such as insanely high taxes basically being more than an average medical bill and on average prolonged wait times

9

u/Redoran_Gvard Feb 02 '23

Those high taxes are mainly because the US needs to allocate so much money to fund its bloated worldwide military operations

If the US wasn't as militarised as it is today, the tax issues of universal healthcare wouldn't be as much of a problem. But of course that would simply never happen in our lifetime sadly

u/CurryLord2001 Feb 02 '23

We literally spend more on Healthcare than we do on the military (not that high military spending is a good thing). The spending isn't the problem, public Healthcare is just ultimately inefficient

u/Brandeeno2245 Feb 01 '23

That is by far the most asinine argument against Mr. Beast, I've heard about this.

These people were blind, I'm sure 90% at least of all blind people would literally murder someone if it meant being able to see.

The other 10% are just nuts

People who make that argument should be forced to spend a month with thick blind folds over their eyes, and after they break down after a week be told now imagine this is was your life for years if not always.

Universal healthcare is a socialist concept though.

And plenty of modern capitalist states do have a number of socialist policies in place, even the US (e.g. labor unions).

Just because there's universal healthcare in other capitalist countries does not mean that the American healthcare system is not the result of capitalism.

Also, you can criticize capitalism and the current system without being a commie lol.

The issue with critiquing the American healthcare system is most people can't properly diagnose the root problems. It's all in the regulations. Regulations written by insurance companies and the healthcare providers and enacted by the politicians, from both sides of the aisle, paid off by the healthcare lobbyists.

Want to fix it? Get rid it the national regulations and allow the states to deal with it themselves. The federal government, as usual, has failed completely.

If there wasnt any capitalism, there would be no need for him to help, since the society has “outgrown money”

Before yall boo me:

1.: capitalism is important to develop a society to a certain stage, and we already surpassed that

2.: im not saying what he did was wrong, hell, it was one pf the nicest things one could have done in this capitalistic world

3.: with outgrown, i am refering to the fact, that the whole purpose of capitalism was to creative competition on marketfield, so products will be better and better to sell more than their competitors, since we reached the stage where products quality doesnt matter anymore, that is the point we outgrew money and should start looking for a more longterm working system

The criticism that mr beast is profiting off the people’s misery is stupid. One, he asked for the consent to film these people, it’s not like he just came up to a random person and forced them to film their procedure. Two. If he doesn’t make the video, he can’t get more money to help even more people. That’s the whole point of the video, and the channel.

Just because one thing is worse doesn't mean it is bad to criticise another. Capitalism has its benefits but we clearly see in America that it simply doesn't work for a huge chunk of the population. What is needed is a mix out of capitalism, socialism and social market to create a stable and healthy environment for all people.

If you think the price of healthcare has ANYTHING to do with the free market then you're mad. It's government interference and hyper regulation. The slush fund firehose that is Medicaid and Medicare are driving money up at mindboggling speed.

The cost of care is up as even small practices need an army of assistants and consultants to remain compliant with the byzantine legal system, and the price control that is the link between service rendered and price people are willing to pay has been broken as big spender government thinks they can just throw money at the problem.

why does valid criticism about the healthcare system try to shoot capitalism. the entirety of Europe is capitalist and has a functioning healthcare system. you are shooting at the wrong thing.

u/OneComfortable2882 Feb 02 '23

There is a thing like hyper-capitalism, it would be more right to say that it is the enemy in that case, however capitalism only leads to hyper-capitalism, the longer it exists the more likely it will turn into hyper-capitalism, USA is just first hyper-capitalist country out of many.

Countries of Europe may become hyper-capitalist in future, what is today may stop existing tomorrow or in few years.

The Soviet Union, China, Vietnam, Cuba... they brought underdeveloped and unindustrialised feudal nations into industrialization and universal rights. 2 of them even became superpowers

Well, The soviets collapsed, Cuba has corrupt people and is a dangerous place, and china realized communism does not work and went the authoritarian route, so define successful

Cool for the former blind people. I’ve just never liked the,“hey look at me, I’m helping”, attitudes from people who film themselves doing stuff.

Right up there with the hidden camera vids of people handing out money to homeless people. It’s just shameless clout chasing imo.

They do have it better actually. If any of these 1000 blind people would have been born in Cuba, they would have had access to one of the best Healthcare systems in the world, at the cost of 0 Cuban pesos. And if there would have been any complications (which is unlikely), it would have been caused by Cuba not having access to American pharmaceuticals because of the embargo.

So, why doesn't the government just take the money they stole from me at gunpoint and spend it on something I find useful?!?!? Wouldn't we be better off without a government if they're just gonna spend it all on a brown people killing spree on behalf of Lord White Jesus for G.O.D. (Gold Oil Drugs)?

Socialist Lies:

  1. There is no scarcity with socialism (ignore the bread lines people)

  2. It can be as innovative as capitalism (who need new drugs anyways?)

u/Itstreasonthen1234 Average r/memes enjoyer Feb 02 '23

There are also bread lines under capitalism, we call them grocery stores, and the food there isn’t even free

What country went from an agrarian backwater to being the first in space in 40 years? Was it by any chance the Union of Soviet socialist republics?

u/TooBusySaltMining Feb 02 '23

Which Soviet leader visited a grocery store and said if the Russian people could see this it would start a revolution? This same leader also wrote in his autobiography that that visit destroyed his views on communism.

Reagan was born before the USSR existed and outlived it. The Soviets were like the person who maxed out twenty credit cards before going bankrupt, but man life sure was great when they were spending! They went from superpower to third world country losing a war against one of their former republics.

I would rather live under Xi, Putin, or Mao back in the day than have to work a 9-5 and be able to rely on government assistance if I can’t get by. I would much rather starve and make it harder for others to become millionaires and billionaires.
