Hello, I see many guys have very leftist economical views on this board. Why is that? Maybe it's just me, but I don't see too many good things about the Left. * Separating people by their income or class status. Reverse racism. Progressive taxation, yet regressive benefits. * State-intervention to natural businesses e.g. saving failing companies, "benevolent dictatorship" * View that those in charge of government know better than people in free market. * Individual's attributes seem like taboo subject. For example, we consider that health care is such a human right that is should receive funding no matter what. First problem we have is estimation: how many patients need health care in our area? That is easy question to solve in free market -> more patients mean more personel, carrot here is reputation (based on results). If funding is received a priori it doesn't give incentive to better results. On the other hand if funding is based on political decision and not public's needs, staff on public clinics are often overworked.
