Being in Family Medicine, I spend a lot of time thinking about the here and now and not random worries about the future. I was glad to see that i09 came up with a list of dystopias now prevented (and one possible new one) yesterday. I have to say I wasn’t too worried about the mutant plague or the creation of a permanent unhealthy underclass but I WAS convinced that spending 50% of all of our American output on healthcare was never a good idea. Regarding the socialist totalitarian state, try listening to the radio between Mobile and Montgomery and you’ll discover that we entered into that in 1910 (dang that Teddy Roosevelt).
