Well, not taking into account that money is a construct we created and have allowed to become the backbone of our society as it grew beyond the point where the barter system was sustainable…
How about we have doctors be paid when their patients get better rather than just for seeing them? That’s one option. Doesn’t fix everything, but it’s a suggestion.
Bringing it back around to the actual topic at hand: That services cost money doesn’t suddenly mean people don’t matter. My suggestion is that instead of arguing for why we just can’t afford to care about human beings, you use what is no doubt your substantial brain power to help come up with alternate systems of governance that will allow for people to afford to live.
Just because something is the way it is, doesn’t mean it’s the way it should be or has to be. One of my biggest pet peeves is when people use various versions of the “that’s the way it is, get over it” argument. Because it doesn’t have to be. If we’re really as smart and evolved as we think we are, then we can do something about. But we have to do it together.
