government owned. Exactly.
It not only stipulates what health insurance you buy, but it claims the power to dictate any aspect of your life.

Ownership is the power to determine the disposition of something.
Government uses law to determine the disposition of the individual.
The individual will do what they, when they say it and they will take what they want, when they want it.

Then they employ an army of people to make sure you obey their will.

You nailed it.
