You call what we have now "maximum liberty conditions"?
And it's the socialists you claim to have child like minds.
Sheer damned stupidity.
It'll get votes for another term or two and then there will be nothing to buy with the printed government dollars because even decent and hardworking people will drop anchor and watch this parasitic bunch of scumbags crash and burn.
So you equate poor people with a "parasitic bunch of scumbags"? Holy hell, brother. That's harsh even by my standards. I think the net increase in happiness would be a win, and maybe the "decent and hardworking people" wouldn't have to work quite so hard and could actually enjoy their lives a little. But I guess we'll just have to agree to disagree.
I have no sympathy for the useless, whining, bunch of puss filled maggots that the US is paying good money to sit on their butts and do nothing.
If everyone had the basics, there would always be a sub-set of the population that would want more. If I knew that working harder would get me more "stuff" then I would work harder.
Then people would be envious.
Then they would covet.
Then they would steal.
If I didn't get more by working harder, then the incentive to work harder would be lost.

Leftism is a faith-based brainwashing cult, take the famous Marxist Utopian the Rev. Jim Jones for example.
Slavery (absolute control) is always the goal of leftism, it was true in the old south (Enjoying the benefits of other peoples hard work) and it is still true today, in fact, it's even more the case. Absolute control is institutionalised, it's the establishment.
Will people wake up?
They are distracted by sports, celebrity worship and working twice as hard as ever to pay a bill. When they do tune into the news to get a grasp of what the problems could be, they are lied to openly by a compliant press who facilitate the goal of the very leftists who 'know' what's best for us.
The illusion is reinforced by persecuting thought criminals, prosecuting thought crime by ostracising them from the collective.
In other words, fascism.
This is nothing more than a bump. This needs to be said and read many more times, by many more people. This is the absolute crux of it, and I couldn't have said it better myself. Thanks for that TWW.
