This is extremely unclear if this is absolutely true or not.
Unfortunately if it Is true that certain essential services like 'health care' and other tasks can only be properly done by government... then all I can say that we are well and truly screwed because the governments, essentially all governments and especially the USA one, are ran by either evil men and/or incompetent morons. It means that there is no possible solution for the plight we are in right now.
So far, at least in the USA, the best solution they have come up with so far to reduce the price of health care and provide universal coverage is 'Make it illegal not to buy health insurance'. This sort of thing does not fill me with much confidence.
But that is neither here nor there.
The reality is:
The government is destroying technological progress, destroying the profitability of competitive corporations, and strangling innovation through it's use of laws the government says is designed to promote progress, increase profits, and artificially boost the rate of innovation.
There are people in there that ACTUALLY BELIEVE that the problem isn't that the patent system is terrible, but the fact that everybody else in the world is not forced to run under the same system.
