“correct. Medicare recipients go to their own doctors etc. People misunderstand what this means all the time.”

“Thank you. I am glad to see that, at least, you get it.”

“Oddly enough, as long as we have a system where employers must provide health insurance, rather than a 100% publicly funded single payer system where all citizens are the risk pool participants and governments (state and fed) administer the programs, there will be this issue on both sides of the debate. Private businesses shouldn't have to provide health care at all! Let's join the rest of the civilized world and get businesses out of health insurance provisioning. Medicare for all is the only sensible way to avoid this debate forever.”

“Sorry, but a govt. administered health care system would mean that the people who took care of me would be about as congenial as the DMV workers.”
Is Lifelong Monogamy Possible?

Is Lifelong Monogamy Possible?

“No problem. If you follow my point, I was saying choose or choose not to. People are free to promise whatever they like or not promise anything. My issue was with the 'is it possible' notion. Of course it's possible, as is promising non-monogamy, or not making a promise. These are all acts of will. I differ with those who think any of these things are circumstances beyond our control. Just the opposite. We get to choose. Some of us choose monogamy. Some do not. So be it.  ”

“Monogamy is a commitment, not a circumstance or an accident. Asking if it's 'possible' is the wrong question - clearly the fact that millions of people happily choose to remain monogamous demonstrates that is exists - ergo it's 'possible'. Choose to commit to monogamy or not - but don't speak as if something outside one's self determines if it's 'possible'. When one takes the 'vows' of marriage, for example, one is promising (hence a 'vow;) to the other person that they will keep their vows. It's a declaration of an act of will. Speaking about it in any other way posits that it's not within our power to keep our promises - and that's the heart of the issue.”

“What if one's marriage vows don't include monogamy?”

“Well said. Faved by your first fan.”

“But, the thing is not just whether it is possible but natural. Some animals mate for life and some do not. I would think that humans fall more naturally in the latter rather than the former. To remain monogamous, humans have to make a choice, sometimes a daily choice to stay faithful, they don't just do it by nature. There are temptations, there are choices that have to be made. Some people are able to say no and to honor their commitment and some are not. It is within our power to keep the promises but first we have to want to.”
