Stanley Hauerwas: Hauerwas On Healthcare (VIDEO)

Posted: 07/13/2012 7:18 am

"Medicine can't get us out of life alive." --Stanley Hauerwas

is there something in between a business person or the government making the medical decisions
in our lives? Something more radical? Stanley Hauerwas, one of America's most respected theologians, says the answer to the healthcare crisis is, "to teach people how to die." Our culture tends to ignore death. At the very least, we make wild attempts to distract ourselves from it for as long as possible. Are we just living "lives of quiet, desperate atheism," as Hauerwas suggests?
