Early reviews of the movie are coming out. Definitely read Ezra Klein’s take on it. And Amanda Marcotte’s. Also Mark Hoofnagle. And why Rob does not want to see it.
Perhaps it is my upbringing, but the fact that one has to pay for medical treatment (and/or pay health insurance) was the second most appallingly surprising thing to me when I arrived in the USA (the sincere religiosity of so many natives was the first). After 16 years here, I still cannot really wrap my mind around it. The notion that anyone but doctors, nurses and patients can have a say in medical treatment, or that anyone should make a profit out of people’s sickness is, to my mind, so atrocious, right up there with the notion of slavery. Both are extreme examples of trampling over most basic human rights.
I will go and see the movie as soon as I can.
