In a lot of countries that is still the case. They are perceived as poor countries who cannot afford decent support for sick people.
This perception must be changed because it is clearly superior to the penny-pinching, grind-them-into the-dirt, neo-feudalist, economic rationalist, neo-cons, or whatever else you want to call those bullshit artists stealing money from the public purse to deliver inferior services.
“Western countries” have been misled by this Thatcherist-Reagonist-Howardist etc-ist bullshit for decades, That is the great source for the discontent that has led to so much political turmoil in so many countries around the world.
Things will keep getting worse until someone can stand up against the billionairs, their captive media, and their pet politicians who keep pushing this propaganda.
