WELFARE STATE. In the documentary “Sicko,” Michael Moore edited out a large section about Norway and its welfare state because he felt it was too “scary” to include. Watch the clip from the documentary and reflect on the questions listed below.
In the beginning of the film, the Minister of Health explains that the main reason for having a welfare state is so all people are treated equally, regardless of their income, age, gender, race, level of education, etc.
- How do you react to this?
- Would your health or the health of your loved ones be different in Norway?
- How does the welfare system affect one’s personal finances?
