Lately I've been seeing such a negative reaction to the notion of individuality, personal responsibility.
I've seen such a positive push for socialized medicine, the discussions of all the benefits of "democratic socialism", the positives attributed to
not having to have control over your healthcare.
So many, here, elsewhere, have glorified the wonders of socialism. They put up other socialist countries as examples for everyone to strive to. They
sneer and look down if you even bring up being responsible for your own actions.
But why stop at socialism? Why not just toss responsibility out completely!
Why just go halfway?
Just have the government own everything and have them give us an allowance. They own all housing, all vehicles, all stores, all clothing.
Then they (government) can just give it to you and we'll all be equal.
No one would have to work if they didn't want to, it'd be a country where we all would be living in our moms basement.
Just face facts. The American experiment in free market capitalism has failed. Too much government greed, too much corporate greed.
Just say, "forget it" and make the whole country a nanny-state so we won't have to worry about taking care of ourselves, or competing (because that
isn't fair), or working hard, or trying to do better, or over achieving.
We can be the country of Mom's Basement and have government do our laundry.
