Good News On Public Health!

In North Korea at least, there are plenty of health service personnel and obesity is not a problem, according to the head of the World Health Organization. Good to know that at least one country has enough doctors, even if it's an oppressive Stalinist hellhole that shoots citizens who try to leave. As for obesity, well - it's hard to see how people could get fat when they suffer from chronic food shortages. No doubt the occasional nationwide famine has also contributed to the viability of the North Korean health care sector, by killing off the weakest 10% of the population and reducing their contribution to health care costs!

Suddenly, the answers to America's health care problems are clear - all we need to do is collectivize agriculture so that people can't get fat, and institute a police state to force doctors to work for free. Why hasn't anybody been pushing these solutions?
