Universal Declaration of Human Rights - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Society is there to improve peoples lives, paying back to society is what every MAN has a duty to do. Society is good to you so you should repay the favour.You have the right to struggle to survive and if you start a family you have the responsibility to help them--but you do NOT have the right to force people whom you don't know and will never meet to provide anything for you.
They don't owe you anything. They are living their lives and feeding their families and they have no right to compel YOU to help THEM either.
Sorry but working for a government run program is not and never will be slavery. People get paid to work for the state. People get time off when working for the state. The slavery you speak of could so easily be turned around to include the private sector. You MUST be there on time, you MUST do whatever tasks are set you, you MUST work whatever hours they set you. How is that any different to working for a state institution?Help, charity, compassion--those are all good things--WHEN THEY ARE VOLOUNTARY
You expressed an earlier concern about "slavery". Stop engaging in it. You want the government to provide you with medical care. Since government cannot create personnel or equipment they must force the people currently in the profession to provide it for you. Yes, they must force them on your behalf. That is slavery pure and simple
Also when has anyone every given to charity on a non voluntary basis?
Charity and compassion are things that are prominent in our society. If there is a problem then the government are there to "sort it out". What you advocate is being a slave to the market. Which never works out well for the majority of people.
Stop using the false assertion that people who are unemployed or homeless are lazy. Paying tax is not theft. We all benefit from society, therefore we all pay for it. And we pay for a pretty damned fine service when it is run correctly.Stop using the government as a moral shield to hide from yourself and others that the way you choose to live your life is by plunder, theft and robbery.
Or be man enough to steal, rob and plunder on your own and face the consequences, rather than having the government do it for you.
When I see low cost housing and full employment I say "Hey thats government policies working" when I see a man in a box on the streets I say "hey there is a victim of the free market". When you see people being charged more for a lesser service you will also see thats a by product of the free market. Quite simple.Just speaking for myself, when I held your views, one of the reasons I automatically assumed that government was the only means by which we can improve our society is because I truly thought there was no other way. (as in, gee we have to HAVE to have government for roads)
I was wrong then as you are now. There are many many ways to make it a better world without government. Remember, man was here before government--not the other way around. Government is A tool, not THEE tool.
I already know conservative ideals, and they sicken me. The world should not be the haves and have nots but the haves and the have mores.If you ever become curious about those alternatives, I'd like to suggest you read "CAPITALISM AND FREEDOM" by Milton Friedman and/or "FREE TO CHOOSE" by the same author.
Consider reading them for the same reason I did at the time. So that you can know your ideological opponent. Don't rely upon anonymous guys like me to make the best presentation of conservative alternatives--go right to the source and "get the goods on us".
The more social a democracy the lower the crime rate, the higher the standard of living, the happier and healthier the people.
If you advocate conservationism then you are looking at ideologically scrapping the minimum wage, not providing people with a safe standard of housing, unsafe working conditions, paid for water, healthcare etc. Not a world I would wish to live in. Not a world anyone would wish to live in.
I am afraid it will not be. My personal hero is Tony Benn. One of the few MPs who was not out for himself.(see socialism, not trying to line his own pockets but improve the standard of society) He was there to improve the standard of living of everybody. Conservationism is there to keep the poor poor and the rich rich. All this bollocks about he who works hardest will get the most rewards is crap also. How does a Merchant banker work harder than a coal miner?I hope someday you do because it will be a life changing event. Others, now long gone did the same for me. The only way I can thank them is to return the favor to others...

The great man speaks.
You may think I am talking about scraping the free market, no I say regulation of the free market is the way forwards. Government owned and run corporations are also a move in the right direction. It does not mean that the services will be free, but that the services will be run by the people for the people.
