Black Sunday

It is not considered enough that the law should be just, it must be philanthropic. It is not sufficient that it should guarantee to every citizen the free and inoffensive exercise of his faculties, applied to his physical, intellectual, and moral development; it is required to extend well-being, instruction, and morality, directly over the nation. This is the fascinating side of socialism.

But, I repeat it, these two missions of the law contradict each other. We have to choose between them. A citizen can not at the same time be free and not free. M. de Lamartine wrote to me one day thus: – “Your doctrine is only the half of my programme; you have stopped at liberty, I go on to fraternity.” I answered him: – “The second part of your programme will destroy the first.”

The idea that health care is a right is a total abomination of what a right is. You can’t have the right to a good produced by someone else. That would mean you have a claim on some part of his or her life. In other words, slavery.

When health care is a right, true rights cease to exist.
