"Long before the modern model of health insurance became prevalent, self-organized working class mutuals functioned to spread healthcare risks and costs among their members. It was part of a broader movement, a welfare state organized voluntarily and from the bottom up by workers for themselves..."
Also, I think a lot of the root causes of many, (but obviously not all,) health problems would be greatly reduced in the absence of subsidies, (including limited liability for pollution,) to the chemical-industrial-agricultural complex.
"cisphobia" bullshit *rant*
"Cisphobia" if that were an actual thing, would be completely justifiable. Trans people should be afraid of cis people, considering that they're the ones who oppress us. If you actually bothered understanding the struggles that trans people face you'd quickly realize that trans people actual have good reason to be suspicious of cis people.
I don't trust people who idolize Barack Obama.
Fuck the neoliberal popculture politics that elevates politicians like Justin Trudeau and Obama because they're charismatic and good looking.
Right past their professionally fitted suits is fucking western imperialism in the form of arms deals in the middle east that directly arm terrorists.
