Nuances Of Socialism Explained

Nate Silver explains the difference between socialized medicine and socialized insurance. Hint: no one is offering socialized medicine as an option right now, so stop calling it that!

The difference between the two is important for reasons other than just irritating me, one's a vastly larger policy, and also somewhat more unpopular.

Just something to keep in mind when you see health care polls, and hear people talking of the evils of socialized medicine.
