Not too mention cutting off immigration. You cannot have unchecked immigration and high levels of social welfare. the math simply won't work as the US is finding out now. In addition, countries like the US basically allow smaller countries to live out their Utopian desires because we essentially bear the burden of being the world's police with our expansive military.
True. I forgot that we would also need to more or less scrap almost all of our military and demand that someone else do that now.
