I can’t conceive of inventing a pill that would save lives, then charging money for it. I’m a failed capitalist.
Should doctor services also be free? And then we can make food free as well? And artists should give away their art too?
Come on…all of life is a business. It’s just a matter of practicing ethical, restrained business that’s based on fair principles. Unfortunately, the practice of medicine has been unrestrained and unethically practiced for decades. Boomer doctors (and the generations prior) have gotten our country into a hole. My generation is unfortunately following their lead. It’s up to the millenial physicians to get us out. I have high hopes.
But most importantly, don’t make the mistakes of your elders. You guys have to start doing the right thing, not the most things.
