There seem to be few points that unite all Kansans, let alone the whole world, but Eric Nelson seems to have found a point of agreement in The universal desire for universal health as shared in Communities Digital News.

PETALUMA, CA, Jan. 26, 2014 – You’d be hard-pressed these days, at least here in the U.S., to come up with a more divisive subject than universal health care, but probably just as hard-pressed to find a more universal desire than good health. Even if we can’t all agree on how it’s achieved, it’s still something we all want.
The good news is that this desire in and of itself helps to foster good health decisions, including a sense of balance and moderation in our eating habits and exercise routines, even the attitudes we nurture (or allow to fester) in thought. Qualities like gratitude, forgiveness, compassion – or, on the flip side, resentment, distrust and fear – all have a direct and measurable impact on our mental and physical well-being.
There can be a tendency, however, for this sort of mental housecleaning to be portrayed in the media as little more than a self-improvement project, a subtle if unintentional perversion of the Golden Rule that would have us do good to others simply to feel good about ourselves, in effect limiting what should be a sincere desire to a less-than-sincere and likely less effective expression.
