I was making a joke, as the tone of the story reminded me of those e-mail chains or copypastas that used to do the rounds - They'd have an elaborate setup for an eye-rollingly unlikely payoff. For example, a Christian student outsmarts his Atheist professor and shows him up in front of the class, and then the closing remark would be "That student's name? Albert Einstein." It just made me think of those because it's an abstract and unlikely scenario that most likely didn't happen.
The greatest egalitarian achievement of our country, the NHS, is a distinctly socialist concept. A healthcare service which everyone pays into, is free at the point of use, and supports everyone when they need it without putting them in debt for the rest of their lives. How is that doomed to failure? Doctors, nurses and other staff work in the NHS because it's one of the best healthcare services in the world. It exists because people with the will to see it succeed still fight for it. The reward is not monetary, because doctors here make a fraction of what they could earn in the USA or New Zealand if they were to emigrate and set up a private practice - Yet this service attracts the best in the world.
