Historian Timothy Snyder On America’s Health Care Problem

Historian Timothy Snyder On America’s Health Care Problem

OUR MALADY: Lessons in Liberty from a Hospital Diary by Yale Professor of history Timothy Snyder is the outcome of his having become ill with appendicitis in December 2019 and almost died. In a thought provoking interview on ON POINT Dec 28, Snyder says his hospital experience taught him about the powerful relationship between health and liberty in the United States. Well worth listening to the link.  The book, moreso, for demonstrating how patriotism and American exceptionalism makes us blind to our own health care and not learning from outside systems that offer better health care than in US.
