I have written in two previous posts regarding the failure of social justice, so in this post I would like to add a supplemental which will be divided into three parts. In this post I would like to explicate how health care is not an unalienable right, while illustrating those who predicate their position in the affirmative are intellectually dislodged from reason. Remember, nobility of action has no place within the broad spectrum of legislative processes, but before we can dive into this facet of understanding we must determine what our rights are.
If you feel inclined to disagree let us regress to one of the rights to individual action; the pursuit of happiness. The word pursuit is the effectuality I will specifically reference, it is the actionable word that cites with precise brevity the road one must travel. We have the right to the pursuit of happiness – a course of action enacted by the individual with the intent of producing a desired outcome. What is conspicuously absent is any reference to an obligation that others can be afflicted with in order to bring about your happiness. It was not written "the pursuit of happiness at the detriment of another" for a reason. And why is this you may ask? It is because your happiness, at the expense of another human being, connotes a servitude and abdication of the property of self (and the rights contained therein). To the Founding Fathers this was the antithesis of true liberty.
This is, with great sadness, incisively what the Democrats, leftist, statists, and progressives are not understanding - their imperceptibility precludes them from seeing beyond their socialistic agenda. It is also exactly the reason why they have no compunction to assert the Pandora's Box of health care as an American right. Furthermore, technocrats within the current administration have perverted forms of modal logic (deontic and alethic modalities for example) to drive the language of the debate and create an atmosphere of justification for their cause. The phrase say what you mean and mean what you say is displaced with misdirection and disorientation. You cannot have an intellectual debate, much less a conversation, with those who are psychologically detached from reality and lay claim to a prerogative that does not exist in the Constitution (or clarified in the F.F.'s separate works).
You have seen many posters stating that health care is a moral human right, and perhaps that statement has an element of truth. However, it is beyond the scope of logic and reason to predicate a position of morality while stripping the rights and liberties from others. Simply because the government maintains that you are entitled to something should not mean that such a supposition should be cemented as fact or verity. Have you ever asked yourself this question?
“What will the government have to do, take away, or replace in order to effect an illegitimate right?”
Private citizens will have to relinquish their genuine rights via governmental coercion in order to expedite the programs or services that are fallaciously seen as “free” or “expected” of a government construct. Tax the rich! That is the answer for everything, isn't it? After all, they are all evil people who step on the necks of poor people and drink the blood of little children. How trite. I guess everyone within the Democrat sphere have rights except those who are affluent or stand in disagreement. God forbid one would have to actually toil in order to pursue and fulfill one's needs – I know, it's a travesty.
In the next post I will continue into the moral theory of government health care and then onto the economic impact that lies ahead. Until then, let us wave our own vexillum and reclaim our original, legitimate rights.
In support of other bloggers to share their viewpoints, I would like to offer,
