If you or your loved one were denied critical care (triage) because, in the circumstances described, such care went to the highest bidder, not the most criticallty stricken, I doubt you would blithely conclude, "Oh, well, supply and demand worked efficiently. My dying daughter didn't receive care because my neighbor's broken nose was more economically important to a physician merely exercising his human rights."

No, I would not put it in those terms.


People who are anti-freedom certainly come up with the most absurd and unlikely rationalizations of why we shouldn't be free, don't they?
