write on!

“I grew up admiring Sweden because it managed to be rich and socialist at the same time, two things I believe everyone ought to be. Coming from a country where no one seemed to think it particularly disgraceful that a child born with a brain tumor could be allowed to die because his father didn’t have the wherewithal to pay a surgeon, or where an insurance company could be permitted by a state insurance commissioner to cancel the policies of its fourteen thousand sickest patients because it wasn’t having a very good year (as happened in California in 1989), it seemed admirable beyond words that a nation could dedicate itself to providing equally and fairly for everyone, whatever the cost." – American author Bill Bryson
