Response to aquart (Reply #10)

43. to me, this is at the root of the monied's dysfunctional relationship with the rest of the us...and,

it's this objectified relationship with money that keeps right-leaning 99%-ers in a prison of their own making.

example -- i've heard way too much from low-information, right-leaning colleagues that they don't want universal health care because if everyone had it, then their ability to access it "wouldn't MEAN ANYTHING." as if the point of having health care is to flaunt status, rather than to treat disease.

their point is that health care *should* be scarce b/c at root, health care is a measure of one's worth in society.
