When people are born, if they aren’t an orphan, their family will generally see to their needs. When they are old if they don’t have means or family they will die in the street. For so many the state is their only family in old age. For some the state is their family in their infancy.
Rage still boils over the idiotic lie and talking point that society can’t afford social security. It frankly can’t afford the rich. The rich are the only comparatively dispensible class. This massive stupidity is the sentiment of criminals and fools.
