Despite overwhelming evidence that government intervention wrecks health care, government control over American medicine keeps growing. Why?
Because, Yaron Brook argues, virtually everyone today believes that a person’s need morally entitles him to have it fulfilled at others’ expense. This morality of need is at the root of every government health care entitlement, from Medicaid to ObamaCare .
In this provocative talk, Dr. Brook attacks the morality of need, and proposes a revolutionary alternative: the moral right of each individual to live for his own sake, taking responsibility for his own life and needs — including his health care needs — on a free market. (Recorded May 11, 2010.)
