SHOULD HEALTHCARE AND EDUCATION BE FREE?
Yes. All vital industries should be socialized.
Not only should healthcare be free, but the entire supply chain should also be socialized to reduce the cost to a minimum while only maintaining privatization in the research and development along with the service provision.
Preferably having both a public and a private option in the provisioning of healthcare, likewise for R&D.
This is the best way to ensure optimal results for healthcare without burdening the public with a large tax hike.
Likewise, the state could establish state-owned or cooperatively owned for-profit companies to generate revenues to reduce taxes and incentivize entrepreneurs with tax cuts and, possibly, easier financing as it would be able to afford both if the cost of healthcare and infrastructure was covered by state-owned businesses.
Regarding education; Yes, educational services should not be allowed to go private.
A state-run education system, monitored by a democratically elected committee, increases the internal integration of the country as it forces all classes and cultures to integrate from an early age. Furthermore, it acts as a defensive measure to stop the spread of invasive ideological indoctrination by foreign hostile nations and entities.
A country that allows its primary education system to be private without very strict monitoring is a country that can easily be subverted and turned into a client state of foreign powers.
Regarding higher education, an educated public increases the wealth of the nation, and thus it is best to make it as easy as possible to get higher education.
A private option can be allowed, but a public high standard one is a must.
