The health insurance industry's hired guns cry that Medicare For All (or any universal healthcare) would "crash the system" and "destroy healthcare as we know it."

They say that like it's a bad thing.

They say we should trust them and their cost-cutting efforts to bring all Americans more affordable health care.

We should not trust them, because the system as it is currently structured economically is incapable of reducing costs.

Why?

Okay, I picked out the invalid assumption before the paragraph, "It's noticeably bigger."
See if you can! :) #foresight #futurist
The answer is, of course, the assumption of stationarity.
Stationarily means, in this context, that rates don't change over time.
Under the model of stationarity, the odds per year of a violent revolution in the 1800s is identical to the odds this year.
Of course, this isn't likely true. For instance, if you take the years 1750 to 1850 as the reference period, the probability of a violent revolution is 2% per year.
In the next century, it's 0% per year.
In the next century, it's (so far) 0% per year.
