I'd concur, but I also feel more responsibility for the poor in society.
Not the idiots who gambled and lost, not the 'workers' leeching off the public purse, not those in 'golden circles' manipulating govt for their own ends; fuck them.
But the real poor, the excluded, the ones who never had a chance.
We have a responsibility to ensure that they are not the victims in this balls-up.
I dont think the libertarians give a damn for them, but I do, so I cant subscribe.
Personally I believe it's the states duty to ensure equality of opportunity for all it's citizens.
In that, I would be a firm advocate of free education (incl university), as well as free health care up to 30 years old.
After that you are on your own.
The problem with cradle-to-grave welfare is that the rich avail of it too (as is all too evident at the moment).
Soon, nothing is left in the pot.
