What purpose does healthcare serve in society? Is it a commodity? Or a public service?--WaltCip (talk) 14:24, 16 March 2017 (UTC)

Your question is ill defined. 'Society' is not a living thing and thus has no purposes.
Healthcare is best considered a service, like barbering. One who voluntarily receives and benefits from the service should be responsible for ensuring that his provider is paid.
I assume that your question was prompted by reading User:JRSpriggs#Guaranteed failure: Obamacare and Trumpcare. Obamacare and Trumpcare both assume that every person has a right that someone else pay for his healthcare (at least in part or as a last resort). That is an unjustified and indeed unworkable assumption.
Communicable diseases are a special case since one person may benefit from protecting another from the disease. JRSpriggs (talk) 20:26, 16 March 2017 (UTC)

oops (now did what I intended to do, which is remove the 2 double spaces in the article)

Appreciate your proud user page :) Ethanbas (talk) 03:32, 21 June 2017 (UTC)

I am glad that you did not intend to replace blanks by "Latino". So it was some kind of mistake rather than deliberate vandalism. Good. JRSpriggs (talk) 03:53, 21 June 2017 (UTC)
