Woebegone has an... "interesting" argument against free-market healthcare:



I admit, it took me a moment to catch the obvious problem.

Most don't make 1700 a day

some places charge that per month.

What's the connection again?

He thinks there was no government involvement in health care when Dubya was president.

On top of that, he's using the cost of COBRA as an example of a lack of government intervention... When COBRA is government intervention. Seems like a Love Canal fallacy to me. :p

Oh, I got that.

I just don't get his logic.

He's trying to counter the argument that you couldn't get a years' HC coverage for a day's wages back before govt got involved.

Intolerant Liberals

Quote
I have some difficult news for everyone: Progressives arenít interested in diversity. We arenít interested in inclusion. We arenít interested in tolerance. The progressives I know give exactly zero shits about those things.

We have no interest in everyone getting treated the same. We have no interest in giving all ideas equal airtime. We have no interest in ďtoleratingĒ all beliefs. I donít know where this fairy tale comes from, but itís completely disconnected from every experience Iíve had with progressive liberal folks in my lifetime.

When conservatives cross their arms and glare and shout ďItís not fair! Youíre supposed to welcome everyone but you arenít being nice to me!Ē it stings about as much as if they shouted, ďItís not fair, youíre supposed to be wearing tutus and juggling flaming donuts!Ē

The progressive liberal agenda isnít about being nice. Itís about confronting evil, violence, trauma, and death. Itís about acknowledging the ways systemic power, systemic oppression, systemic evil, work in our world around us. Iím not fighting for diversity. Iím not fighting for tolerance. Iím fighting to overturn horrific systems of dehumanizing oppression.

In the words of Christopher Walker, "This guy, is un-f***ing believable!"

I pretty much wrote a lengthy rebuttal to his bogosity.

And the specific fail is him thinking he's talking about a time before massive government intervention in health care in the US.  You have to go back 60-70 years to get back to before the MASSIVE interventions, and pretty much back into the 19th century to get close to a real free market.

Good grief! The statist who made this is projecting so hard that you can use him to put on a Star Trek movie marathon.

I'd point them to anarchyball.  Nearly half of their posts are ripping "An"coms a new one.

And not even looking at their own terms.  Precisely how is any sort of anarchism going to be any form of statism?  Terminology can't be valid and contradict itself.

The other weirdness here is how rarely there's anyone limited to a single employer, which cannot happen without massive state intervention (of kinds that are usually explicitly illegal in most Western states), and even then it's rare for it to actually work on anything but the most local level.  (Even the classical example of the company mining town rarely works.  It is extremely unusual, even with massive state intervention, for there to be no other mines in the region.  Mines tend to cluster because deposits tend to cluster.  If you're experience in mining one type of material, much of your skills will likely transfer to mining other materials.)

Here's the way I say it:

What if I *want* to use money, work for a business owner,  be a tenant in rental property, etc?  Will you use force to stop me?

If so, you just formed a state.  You're not an anarchist.

If not, congratulations, you're a capitalist.

Simple, no?

Looks like we have some fresh meat on our hands. This guy is a major SJW, from the looks of his channel, a real HBomberguy wannabee: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCJnucewF46pFN74GDfLDZBA

Could make for some fresh bogosity material for Lord Killian to tackle.

Seems like just another "But that's not REAL Socialism!" poser.

If you eliminate that last paragraph, it's an astoundingly accurate statement. Replace the final paragraph with "use force to oppose everything that disagrees with me" and... Ta-Da!
