    People are then treated as if begging for something they didn't earn in a welfare state. In my preferred system, everyone has worth, everyone eats, everyone has a job if they can work, everyone is taken care of in old age, everyone gets to go to school all the way through college, and thus no one is demeaned by being "on welfare".

    Cut out all the profiteering and middlemen and corporate parasites and there would be plenty of goods available to accomplish this.

    •  When I say welfare state, (0+ / 0-)

      I don't mean the kind of welfare that we have in this country. I don't see why benefits provided by the government have to be seen as demeaning. That's a frame the right seems to push.
