Skepticism of government is underlying the health care debate like an ever-looming cloud originating in Ayn Rands Objectivism and in Libertarianism. This talk will deal with how Catholicism, Communism and Libertarianism are all cut from the same cloth and how even non-theists can fall prey to the idolatry of secular Gods.
