janan.ganesh@ft.com on American ”Governability’. Political Observer comments.

Like most Americans of certain generations ‘we’ received our inoculations in Public Schools. In a time when Public Health was a prime consideration. That in a time that sees ‘our’ infant mortality rate, that now ranks 33 out of 36 countries.

According to this year’s America’s Health Ranking Annual Report, the U.S. infant mortality rate is 5.9 deaths per 1,000 live infant births, while the average rate of infant mortality among the OECD countries is 3.9 deaths per 1,000 live births. Compared with other OECD countries, the U.S. ranks No. 33 out of 36 countries

The American Infant Mortality Rate is not a scandal, it is a crime!

The direct result of the Neo-Liberal Swindle, that places Profit and the worship of the Market above the imperative of Public Health!  ‘Governability’ is the straw, that this commentator reaches for, out of desperation, to make a connection between politics and the actual trust that American’s place in their Public Institutions.

Not everyone is a Rand Paul nor Janan Ganesh! His essays, of late,  seem more out of touch with the Political Present. Regrettably, even his epigrams are absent, that were the rhetorical gems, that the reader could once depend upon to break the monotony of his misbegotten political chatter.

About stephenkmacksd

Rootless cosmopolitan,down at heels intellectual;would be writer. 'Polemic is a discourse of conflict, whose effect depends on a delicate balance between the requirements of truth and the enticements of anger, the duty to argue and the zest to inflame. Its rhetoric allows, even enforces, a certain figurative licence. Like epitaphs in Johnson’s adage, it is not under oath.' https://www.lrb.co.uk/v15/n20/perry-anderson/diary
