There's nothing wrong with an insurance. There's something wrong with the fact that you need an insurance to survive.
I also have insurance on my car, apartment, motorcycle, kids, etc etc, and I have an accident insurance, so I get paid more to cover stuff that our hospital can't fix, like massages if my back hurts, so I can get back to work faster.
But it's not like in the US where they have people that literally only check if you have insurance and can pay for your treatment. If you can't you're fucked.
You sound like you have no fucking clue how the US works. The number of homeless people in the US is insane. And their taxes are like half of our taxes, wtf are you even talking about?
I don't mind paying high taxes. I honestly don't. Obviously I also demand that my tax money is being handled properly, and that they're not being abused. But I still can live a very good life even after I pay over half my salary to the government.
What you misunderstand is that a government is not robbing you of anything, it's exactly the opposite. Let's take two very vital infrastructures as example 1 and 2.
1) internet infrastructure:
In Denmark the government controlled the entire internet infrastructure, and paid for very good copper lines pretty much everywhere. Everything was good, Denmark was at the forefront of technology, giving citizens cutting edge internet options.
Then they privatized it, and what does a private company do, that control the entire fucking infrastructure? They milked the fuck out of it. We STILL have copper shit in pretty much all of Copenhagen and the area around it, because it's still controlled by the same company. And now Denmark is falling behind on internet access, AND prices.
2) Water infrastructure:
100% government controlled, paid by taxes etc etc. We spend a lot of money on it, and as a result, every citizen in Denmark has access to fresh water, and not just fresh water, but the cleanest tap water in the world.
You have to remember who the government is. They're a representation of the entire population. They work for your best interest. A company work for profit, and nothing else. Companies on the stock market is even forced by law to make profit. They can only do things that will directly or indirectly increase their profit, or people will go to jail.
