Capitalism's most important lesson:
The only value this nation has is how much each individual can greedily and selfishly accumulate for himself without any regard for anyone else. America's corporations understand and utilize this lesson, but the average American does not.
well said. The problem they have is manipulating the hearts and minds of the few remaining Americans who refuse to be brainwashed.

Yeah, you both can move to North Korea and enjoy your most philanthropic society which is devoid of greed and selfishness.

I presume that "brainwashed" is code for standing on your own two feet, making your own way through life, instead of being a mooch socialist swine.

Who said anything about you!!!!????? And yes, I hate socialism because it destroys everything good that mankind can accomplish. It is a poison to the psyche. Consider yourself dismissed.

I'd suggest you become more informed on the topic.

UHC does not equate to good healthcare - Cuba's is terrible. Even Michael Moore, who lauded over Cuba's system, would NOT go to Cuba for his healthcare - typical of the Hypocrite he is.

The US has the finest healthcare system in the world.

Yes, UHC guarantees coverage but it doesn't guarantee care.
