    You are right. The thought also came from a tasteless morbid video I saw. The educational aspect could just be the dialogue that ensued in the situation. (I could've linked it but... heck, It makes me feel screwed up just in knowing I can!)

    I also don't know if this type of stuff would be covered in a psychology course.

    Weird question. Might it be better to just walk away from a family than leave a corpse for them to clean up?

    Well, that's kinda the thing - if the person were thinking rationally about the best course of action, none of this would happen. They'd seek professional help.

    If they can afford professional help. I suppose there are crisis lines...maybe free help out there.

    Free health care and less gun shops?

    I keep forgetting. You Americans have to open your wallets for your healthcare.

    There is no such thing as "free healthcare." Someone somewhere must pay.

    I assume you do much the same, except through taxation rather than insurance premiums.

    Sure, but it means anyone is entitled to healthcare, regardless of their financial status. i.e. a basic right.

    I would gladly pay taxes for my fellow people.

    Do you trust a glutton to manage your generosity?

    And have you experienced any major health issues? If so what was the quality of your care? I'm asking as an outsider.

    A fair bit, yes.
    Spent three weeks in ICU last year.
    The care was fantastic.

    I got hit by a car when I was younger.

    Coma.

    I should be dead but I'm not.

    But you don't care, do you?

    Both epithets are inaccurate.

    If you were hit by a car here, they would take you to the hospital and care for you. You would probably need declare medical bankruptcy once you were well, but they wouldn't leave your broken body in the road.

    Here's an example of what can be right about private healthcare. The wife of a friend was receiving treatment for cancer. The total cost was over $400.000. His personal cost, $450.00.
    Universal healthcare would be great. I just don't trust the Federal government has the ability to manage such a colossal endeavor. We're like 19 trillion in debt right now.

    Yeah, whatever.

    I'd still be scum in your eyes. You'd hope I die anyway if I couldn't afford insurance.

    Why would you think that?
