or do you consider Public health care to be a step towards communism?
You know what Iâ€™ve never fully understood is why communism has such a bad name. Back in the day communism was far more advanced than America was as basically it said everybody was equal and should be treated equally. In America at the time women and black people had very few rights.
Also does it mean that free education is a step to communism too?
Well in England, NHS was founded in 1948, so that's been around for 60 years.
Can somebody else provide us with a detailed explanation about their health care system?
The NHS was founded after WW2 because the government decided that if money could be found to kill people money could be found to help people. Our tax system pretty much works like PP said happens in Iceland and is quite high. Everything essential that a person needs to stay healthy is free and if you have something serious enough theyâ€™ll even pay for travel. If you need meds theyâ€™re usually free. If you canâ€™t work because of your condition you get benefits. Anything cosmetic has to be done privately.
Dentistry is free to everyone under 18 and Iâ€™m not sure but I think itâ€™s free to students. Also Iâ€™m not sure about it but if itâ€™s something super serious with your mouth then I think itâ€™s free too. Everything else you pay.
The NHS has VERY high standards. I donâ€™t know who said about private = higher standards but I can tell you thatâ€™s bull.
Iâ€™m also quite curious to find out what on earth a â€œDeath Panelâ€ is supposed to be Â¬Â¬
