    "Western-quality health care" refers to the QUALITY of health care. I felt "good" health care was too vague, because "good health care" in Nigeria might be nothing more than some childhood vaccines and a midwife to deliver babies. I'm referring to a higher standard than that.



    Oh please. Only a couple of the items on my list are problems in the Western world at all, but they are all huge global problems. I suggest you get the chip off your shoulder, and just replace the terms with whatever they're called in South Korea.
    Just pointing something out. To be honest, I don't know half the things you US citizens use. K-9 being self-propelled artillery, I thought K-12 was something military-related

    IMO, Rand didn't just see libertarians simply as a threat to capitalism, but to the American way of life in general__She believed the United States was in danger of becoming another Russia and that libertarianism didn't provide sufficient defense against Marxism.

    Both her and the libertarians were strong believers in capitalism, self reliance, personal responsibility and individual freedom, but she feared that their absolute minimum government policy didn't allow for the necessary political safeguards to protect Americanism.

    She was right!

    "What is the biggest problem facing humanity?"

    There are a total of ten poll options, one being "Other" to take up the slack_(which I chose)

    Five of the options contain the word "Provide" which indicates government involvement_

    Four of the options are projects most people also believe are associated with government_

    This means 9 of the 10 options are expected to be funded by taxpayers of the industrialized nations_

    Considering that the list of poll options looks like a Socialist Manifesto, it's easy to figure out "What is the biggest problem facing humanity"_

    Other (please describe)- When the balance of providers to providees reaches the tipping point, humanity's biggest problem will be Global Civil Unrest brought on by poverty and famine of biblical proportions_
