…saying “the healthcare system is broken”…the healthcare system does not exist, that’s a big part of the problem. (There are lots of tiny components that could be made into a system at some point, but no clear, cohesive healthcare system exists.)
1.) Saying the “healthcare system is broken” is a concession - you concede a system exists. No such system exists. Clearly.
2.) Conceding that the system exists gives fodder to those who oppose the building of an ACTUAL system (say an universal one for example). It allows those folks to say “The system is just broken, but we can fix it by_______, we don’t need to reinvent the wheel”.
3.) You cannot defend the idea that the wheel was never invented in the first place because you already conceded a system existed.
