The way I see it everyone should have complete freedom about how to spend their money on their wants, but have access to bare needs no matter what. Like basic education, healthcare, anything you need to stay alive and functional.

Some people make bad choices when it comes down to money, which is bad enough when it only matters themselves - but for those who are dependent on them, like children, the elderly of impaired it is quite another matter.
Having the community provide basic needs prevents a lot of trouble.

But the point I wanted to stress is that it isn't about money, but the choices one makes.
Or as one comedian over here stated: "Money alone does not make you happy. That's why I own a big yacht..."

lifetime FE over 0.19 Gmeter or 0.1 Mmile.

For confirmation go to people just like you.
For education go to people unlike yourself.
