Submission + - Popcorn vs. "We The People": To Subsidize->

IConrad01 writes: "Functionalism In Action — Newsflash: Overconsumption Has Health Risks! is a commentary derived from a news item about a man contracting "popcorn lung" from the over-consumption of butter-flavored popcorn; with the idea of trying to take corporate vs. individual vs. public healthcare into a bit of perspective. Basically; in a 'universal healthcare' scenario we would be, as the public, responsible for footing this guy's healthcare bill because he thought abusing a tasty treat was a good idea — which this author, for one, finds just plain silly. Where, then, would the rational cutoff point be? And who would get to make those decisions?"
