Re: paradox
@batye, "it a like changing something in the system premier gives priority to one group of people over other.."


That's the problem, in my view, with governments making the choices - they tend to be political (favoring who wins and who loses), which does not take into account the individual the specific circumstances, or the outcomes.

Governments are good with some things that protect us all, but when they make decisions that allocate resources, determine who wins/loses, etc., they fall short.

I still believe in the overall fairness of individuals to make better decisions.

You sound like the peacekeeper in your family - along with  your mother-in-law - so you are United Nations Part #2!

Great to hear your noble thoughts!

Re: paradox
@batye sounds like you're managing fine. Quite a few years back my relatives set up an online group that soon after had to be disbanded due to flare ups among them. Now they're trying agains with a WhatApp group. We'll have to see if it can be sustained without causing more divisions.

Re: paradox
@batye wow, you can think of your family as a microcosm of global culture. Of course, that could lead to differences. The way you describe it reminds me of a skit from a television show that went viral. I have serious doubts about Adele's song establishing harmony, here you have it:

Re: paradox
@batye thanks for that insight. People in the US who believe socialized systems solve everythign really have no idea about this. They picture it as free healthcare for everyone with no cost at all for what they need. 

I also learned about a law in Canada that requires doctors to give patients who want to end their lives advice or direct assistance. This is a complete turnaround from earlier laws that made suicide illegal. In the US, I believe, assisted suicide is still illegal. But I can't help thinking that the economics of healthcare really enter into this approach. It would save the system so much money to have terminally ill people end their lives earlier rather than later because of the high cost of treatment and care.

Re: paradox
@Ariella yes and no as each province make it own rules and laws - what covered what not... our premier is into alternative life style - now transgender people have it better... but rest of population get the rough end.... in my case now I have to pay more for the Rx at the pharmacy counter...  same for my senior neighboor he screaming bloody murder at time of picking up meds... as in his case he have to pay twice as more now... go figure...

Re: paradox
@batye that's really interesting. I would have thought it would be nationalized, particularly in a country with a national healthcare system.
