as far as welfare for individuals
What would you expect the millions of unemployed people to do?
I understand some people can subside and hats off to them... But the majority
of people will return to their animalistic roots, which breaks down society as a matter of fact.
This increases the cost of security, detention, healthcare, in turn this decreases property values,
wages and consolidates power for the rich, who in-turn buy the political system .
I think you have switched your problem set, replaced your old problems with a new set of problems.
Although you use to recognize politically speaking, how easy it is to hide things that are not in your face.
We do not have to experience a society that is fraying at the seems due to creating a massive shanty class.
do have a cost,
THE BLIND SPOT
Mexico City is a great example of how ignoring the resulting destitution creates a pretty nasty place.
There are square miles of shanty towns, the police carry automatic weapons out of necessity, crime
is clearly more lucrative than decent work. As part of your growth, maybe you should go visit a country that has largely followed the model you
promote? Go experience it and see how economic liberty manifests itself,
see if you would trade the worst of what you see there,
for the worst of what you see here.
Could not hurt
