How to explain the differences across North America and Western Europe regarding the policies of health coverage (mandatory in one hand, private initiative in the other hand)? The response has to be searched in the past history on both side of the Atlantic Ocean. Feudalism in Europe made government to be considered by people as a good thing which liberated them from oppression of the King and feudal lords while in North America, Government rules are associated in people’s mind with the oppression of the English government which imposed taxes before the independence. At least it is the theory exposed by Henry J. Kaiser Jr. Professor of Health and Research Policy Emeritus at Stanford.
