Coronavirus locking has caused the crisis of capitalism in a relatively short order. In removing a lot labor from the system – because people need to isolate themselves, requiring that, in most cases, stay at home from work – we find out how quickly the system will collapse without working people. The billionaire who we think of as a “job creator” has nothing but angry tweets to share with those who profit, and workers make lengthy observations of poor work without security precautions, and in depth some the case said, “Not, thank you. “
In the midst of this crisis, despite the election defeat of the Bernie Sanders campaign, many people are still fighting for policies that can be described as socialist or social democratic. Because it becomes clear that workers are what makes what we call “economics” work, they should not have a greater voice in How it goes? The demands made by workers today – including those who still work in “important” and dismissed positions – are for a more equitable distribution of jobs, care and resources in society, and for a world which, as the saying goes, places people above profit. In many cases, the proposed policy actually proves its usefulness in combating the virus and accompanying economic collapse, because the policy was adopted (or in some cases already) in countries around the world and even right here at home.
The most obvious are drugs that are socialized. While Medicare for All is the center of the Sanders and campaign American Democratic SocialistOrganizing is ongoing, and although it will certainly help now to have a system where everyone is included, this is not a system that is truly socialized, because those who work in health care will still be part of the private sector. A real national health care system – like Britain National Health Service – will be an integrated system where not only payment, but the provision of health care itself will be funded by the government. Doctors and nurses will become public servants, hospitals and clinics will be publicly owned, and everything will be funded by tax dollars, free at the point of service to anyone who needs it.
In fact, the US has one fully public system – health care provided by the Veterans Administration, or V.A. Phillip Longman, writer The Best Treatment Everywhere: Why VA Health Care Will Work Better for Everyone, explains that the public system has incentives to keep people good, and to prepare for crises rather than seeing unused beds or services as waste. While V.A. had been face some criticism to provide inadequate care, Longman said it relies on “evidence-based models that are not profit-oriented, which concern itself with all patients, the whole community, not just one part of the body at a time.” While V.A. have faced subtraction and efforts to privatize it in recent years, studies still Find out that it pays the same or better attention than the private sector.
When a pandemic spreads, doctors and other health care supporters experience it has been called to subsidize care for those with coronavirus – partly because in a pandemic, each of us is as healthy as our neighbors. If the neighbors are not tested or get help because they do not have insurance and are worried about costs (or undocumented and afraid to meet with a crackdown instead of caring), they continue to spread the virus. And in New York, the epicenter of the virus in the U.S., Governor Andrew Cuomo basically has socialized hospital operations, which a hospital administrator described ascut the crap * t. “
