Famous Socialists of the U. K.


The discoveries of healing science must be the inheritance of all. That is clear. Disease must be attacked, whether it occurs in the poorest or the richest man or woman simply on the ground that it is the enemy; and it must be attacked just in the same way as the fire brigade will give its full assistance to the humblest cottage as readily as to the most important mansion. Our policy is to create a national health service in order to ensure that everybody in the country, irrespective of means, age, sex, or occupation, shall have equal opportunities to benefit from the best and most up-to-date medical and allied services available.
-Winston Churchill in 1944, speaking in favor of Briton’s National Health Service

Well personally I don't understand how an advanced civilisation can justify not having adequate health care for all it's inhabitants. I was raised in the UK and never gave a thought to healthcare (as it was always there if I needed it). Now I live in the US and can't afford to cover my wife under my employer's policy. I worry everyday about what will happen if she ever gets sick.
