15. And this profit motive is the obscene fallacy at the core

of America's tragically flawed health care delivery system.

I thank the stars that I benefit from one of the best health care systems in the world (France).

The French believe firmly in social "solidarité" as they call it, or in Biblical terms, the Golden Rule. They came to this wise understanding through centuries of communal, internicine blood letting.

Solidarité is the philosophy underpinning their health system--far from perfect, but leagues ahead of the present US system.
