JJR, forget his name, investigated the universal health plans in countries around the world and found that the reason, in all cases, that countries adopted universal health care was for reasons of morality. The people in these nations felt that in a time when all countries have high wealth, thus the ability to treat a whole population, it was immoral to withhold care based on inability to pay.

I'd like to know who these nations thought got credit for that "morality." The people who coughed up the funds only after they were threatened with fines and imprisonment? The crusaders who solved the problem with other peoples' money? The lawmakers who collected that money by coercion? It seems to me that any system of enforced morality is itself morally corrupt.
