Do you have any sympathy for the livelihoods of able-bodied people who choose not to work and receive welfare instead
No...but I can't say I know any able bodied people living large off of government cash...unless you are talking about overpaid pharma and oil ceo's. But at least they work for their handouts.
Yes. Work should be a choice.
And who end up paying for their carefree, leisurely lifestyle unless they have invested on their own or with others on automated labor?
Well I believe in social anarchy and the abolition of currency, which makes the goal much more feasible.
How? Social anarchy would be the absence of a welfare state that distributes money from the income of the working class to people who don't work at all. And without currency there would be no standard to trade for essential resources?
Doc bro you gotta get out of this fantasy world
Instead of income being distributed to those who don't work, resources would be distributed. If we had anarchy, there would be a lot less work that needs to be done, because of the absence of the private sector. What would remain would be agricultural jobs and manufacturing jobs. A lot of those jobs can be replaced by machinery, although likely not all.
Romzy, thanks for the advice.
