No man is more than a man (no matter what the ancient Greeks thought of Heracles). Men are not to be worshiped–though some of them are to be followed. Here are a few thoughts from one man who was largely worth following: Ronald Reagan. Seems like there were a few problems with the business of medicine which the government was convinced it could/should solve back then also.
I particularly like the line which goes as follows:
Government does not tax to get the money it needs; government always finds a need for the money it gets.
