The fact that you are not doing so indicates that you know, on some level, that you are actually full of shit.
What country is that, again?
It is quite difficult to impossible for the disabled to live.
I know a little about what The System does.
The truly disabled receive no help for so long many, if not most, die.
But; That is The US model.
I have no idea what is going on in Civilized Countries.
Family and Friends help, sometimes.
A good insurance policy is nice.
Some people have that.
Many of the insurance policies run out.
I was in a catch 22.
Many people are or were.
If I got sick, I was unable to work.
If I was unable to work, I could not pay the insurance.
If I did not pay the insurance, I did not have the insurance.
What a mess. The Larger Community keeping everyone safe is a better and more sane system.
Yet; In the US there are persons of great power and meanness.
The TV people? They are mean. Right?
The Outraged middle class?
Angry that the one eyed, one legged man is doing fine?
Well; I saw him a while ago. He was in a good mood and looking fine; For a one eyed, one legged man. That is nice.
Many with both eyes and both legs are not doing as well.
Many people in need. Need should be all a persons needs to receive help.
What do you really think? Now; Really, think.
Besides! That is All the emotional issue.
The Science says that the US economy was designed to have at least 5% non-productive Some Darned Thing.
There are Economists that Know that stuff.
The US economy may be acting funny. Like a big engine.
It is not surprising that many People turn to Religion.
The US economy is a big engine. If it blows up, other engines need to be kept at a distance.
It Is a Moral Issue! Let The People of The US be mean to one another?
Politics. I can't do Politics.
The most helpless have no political power.
I saw a TV documentay. US.
It showed a woman that was dying.
She was shuttled to a local Homeless Shelter from The Hospital.
She was in need of skilled nursing care.
Was it an advertisement for something?
Outrage? Is it true?
Could it happen to you?
Think. Think about it.
If you are English in Enlgland it could not happen to you.
If you are purple with little green spots and you have a humdoid form in England it could not happen to you.
What Nations fall below the acceptable standard in Care? The US is at the top of that list?
How did that happen? No! Don't answer that question.
It does not Have To be a mean system, staffed by mean spirited people that have been trained to 'Show No Mercy'.
Victims. There are a great many victims.
I see them. I may be one.
Life is, just, an exchange of electrons; It is up to us to give it meaning.
We are all in The Gutter.
Some of us see The Gutter.
Some of us see The Stars.

Those that want to Know; Know.
Those that do not Know; Don't tell them.
They do terrible things to people that Tell Them.
