Here’s the latest reader rant, along with my reply!
Charlie writes: Don’t ignore it; mark it “refused for fraud” and return to sender ASAP. It is an offer of contract; if you don’t refuse and return it, you have agreed to it.
My reply: I am not buying this, not even a piece of it. In the first place, a contract requires signature; the fact that something arrived in the mail does not constitute acceptance of contract. In the second, it isn’t so much fraud as it is extortion. The insurance mafia is using threats to compel us to pay it money under duress.
Do this – or else.
And yes, it is fraud as well. Because to have a morally (as well as legally) binding “shared responsibility” for anything, you have to have (a) agreed to be partially responsible and (b) actually are somehow responsible for costs incurred. I do not see how it is that I am responsible for the medical care or costs of random strangers I’ve never met and whom I certainly in no way harmed. Moreover, I did not agree to shoulder any part of these costs.
So how is it that I have any binding “responsibility” for “sharing” these costs?
It’s not even socialism, by the way. We are being mulcted for the profit of a hugely profitable private cartel…
