Mr. Hornberger and Mr. Richman never fail to produce outstanding books on the subjects they tackle. This is no exception. Their great organization - the Future of Freedom Foundation and all of their books make the sound, logical, and unassailable case that GOVERNMENT is a FAILURE and that it destroys EVERYTHING it touches. So many other economists have clearly shown why Socialism is a failed economic policy (no proper market valuation of goods/services, etc.) and this books brings that home in the case of medicine and all of its associated aspects. Government has been conspiring with the AMA and so many others for well over 100 years now to destroy medical freedom and choice and the results are the massively overpriced, poor quality, wasteful system we now all suffer under. Clearly that which government has destroyed CANNOT be fixed with more government. A great book that everyone should read - if they have the courage.

Co-editor Jacob Hornsberger wrote in the Preface of this 1994 book (published by the Future of Freedom Foundation), "The immediate aim of this book is to expose the dengers of socialized medicine. But our purpose is much broader: first, to expose the immorality and failures of the entire welfare-state, managed-economy way of life and, second, to show the moral foundations and workability of the private property, free-market alternative."

The book contains twelve essays, including ones by Milton Friedman and Thomas Szasz.

In his essay, Hornsberger cites a personal example of a family physician who never turned anyone away for lack of ability to pay, and adds, "Does this happen all over the country? You bet it does!... The person who fails to see it is the person who does not want to see it!" (Pg. 21)

The other co-editor, Richard Ebeling, observes in his essay, "In 1885, a year after socialized health insurance began (in Germany), the average number of sick days taken by members of the system each year was 14.1 In 1900, the annual average ... had gone up to 17.6; in 1925, it had increased to 24.4 days; and in 1930, it was an average of 29.9 days. People were also noticeably sicker around weekends and Christmas and New Year's Day..." (Pg. 31)

Another essays suggests, "To see the future of health care in America for you and your children under Clinton's plan, just visit any Veterans Administration hospital. You'll find filthy conditions, shortages of eveything, and treatment bordering on barbarism." (Pg. 50)

Although focused on the Clinton health care plan, the arguments in this book still have some relevance for the current health care debate.

This book isn't just about Socialized medicine, it's about liberty and individual rights. When the government forces one group of people to take care of another group of people we all lose some liberty. This book makes it clear and unimpeachable, healthcare for the masses can only come from a free society allowed to take care of themselves.

Published by the Future of Freedom Foundation, this slim collection of essays on government intervention in medicine makes an excellent case for a complete free market in health care. Published in 1994, many of the chapters specifically address the horrendous Clinton Health Care Plan, which fortunately never even made it to a floor vote in Congress.

This book is worthy of Pravda. It is purely nonsensical. The authors have no specific expertise on the subject yet feel qualified to write a book about it. The use of the term "socialized" is a dead giveaway. The German system, referenced in a previous review, is not "socialized." It is "universal." Of course, the reviewer does not have experience with the German health care system. I lived in Germany for 10 years as an American with a medical background and found the system better than the US's in almost any measurable metric. In 2012 the German health care system reported a 29 Billion Euro surplus delivering higher quality medical care to almost 100% of Germans at less than 50% of the cost of care in the US. Reviewers of this book, like Mr. Propp are led to make ridiculous statements and implications that do not stand up to scrutiny. The work ethic of the Germans is legendary.

From a German conservative politician:
"For me as a German, what I cannot understand is that you make the question of health insurance an ideological question," said Wolfgang Zoeller, a Bavarian politician who has spent the last 22 years in the German parliament or Bundestag.

Americans talk about whether having a national health plan "is going in the direction of Socialism or Communism," Zoeller said in an interview in the Bundestag. The nearly 70-year-old politician said he's far from being a Socialist, noting that he had recently voted to reduce bureaucratic problems surrounding Germany's inheritance tax.

"For me the question of a national health insurance is a humane question. I would like that every person, regardless of his or her age, income, pre-conditions or financial possibilities, be helped if they are sick.

"Otherwise you have the famous phrase: Because you are poor, you have to die earlier. And I don't want that," Zoeller said.

Germany has one of the oldest public healthcare systems in Europe and while the rules can get complicated, it's based on a simple principle: If you make more money, you pay more into the system. The premiums are based on a percentage of your income. That's why, as the economy booms here, the national insurance system is producing strong surpluses, Zoeller and others say."

Every industrialized country in the world has Universal Health care. Only the US does not. Amazing how the right has so little faith in the US to believe we can't achieve what every other country already has. The US has dropped behind its socioeconomic peers in virtually every metric thanks to nonsensical propaganda like this book. If you are already a true believer and the fact hold no interest for you, this book is the thing for you. If you want to improve the society, avoid it like the plague.
