      Healthcare should be run for the benefit of society, by society, as fits its purpose. Profit should have as little to do with it as possible. This is for me a fundamental axiom.
      An axiom ? :confused:

      This sounds like a "belief in absolutes" ...

      I said it was a personal axiom. It is not universal in any way, merely a value I feel is self evident given the present reality and one that informs my views. If the reality of things were different I am sure those beliefs I hold would be aswell.

      Perhaps you could provide some context next time you quote six words out of thousands from another discussion? :p: If I remember correctly that particular quote was in reply to a set of ontological values you asserted were true irregardless of reality.

      We're all going to feel like that on our own idealogical bills.

      You need to understand that not all of us think the same way you do, that's why you're a Libertarian and I'm Centre-Left
