Pluralistic: When private equity destroys your hospital (28 Feb 2024)

I’m hopelessly far behind and hadn’t yet read this blog post when I wrote my comment at:

where I said, among other things:

while some of these perps no doubt have true ideological goals (the scariest ones, our future Adolf Hitlers), there is one ideology they can all get behind: SHOW ME THE MONEY.

but this post reminded me how lazy that was and that in fact, even behind Hitler’s ideology the more sinister banality of evil was just plain old greed.

I stand corrected on who the scarier ones really are. #shareholdervalue

I really admire your ability to parse through all these things and identify the root causes. There is so much evil and horror that it’s easy to make the lazy mistake I did if you aren’t vigilant.
