    Also medical fees can even become a problem for "middle class" people.
    It already is a problem. Poor is a broad term and is hard to quantify.

    Market value and value for society are different things. And no society is not all about money. We call streets after the Curie family even though they were piss poor.

    As we can produce food quite cheaply these days, obesity isnít exactly a problem of the higher classes anymore.

    You could try to argue that the money for medical treatment of obesity could be better spent in developing nations where people are starving. This could be theoretically reasonable to say but in practice it isnít even possible to link the obesity to the illness people have. Obese people have just an higher risk of getting health issue. Just like people that donít sleep enough, smoke and so on.
    Dude, if you're going to move the goalposts, at least stay on the same field. But, I'm glad you agree with me.

    Wow. This thread is getting out of hand quick. All I was going for in the last line of my post was that I make a conscious effort to reject the whole balance sheet/prosperity gospel line that has been playing in the background my whole life where people are investments and money always equals virtue if we just waterboard the logic long enough. I don't want to pay for your healthcare so I can turn you into a healthy taxpayer who can pay for mine later. I don't want to feed (insert racist parody name here)'s eight kids in the projects so they don't grow up and rob me. I want to do those things because I'm not a monster and I want to live in a civilization.
