    FDR wrote a second bill of rights not long before he died. In it he very explicity stated that health care should be available to all, and that such access is a basic human right. I need to dig it up somewhere. I found out about it through Howard Zinn and Noam Chomsky. The mainstream media never mentions it.

    This reminds me of a recent book “Portrait of a Giving Community” published in US that is on my reading table these days.
