I think that every human being should be entitled to basic necessities.
A 6' x 8' covered dwelling heated to a maximum of 68 degrees, 64 ounces of clean water, and 2,000 calories worth of rice, beans, and some green vegetable per day would take care of the absolute basic minimums.
The problem I have is when the government starts paying for 2 bedroom apartments and providing people with cash they can use to buy whatever they want (yes, I know they can't buy WHATEVER they want, but they still have a choice and there's no reason to even give them that much).
Naturally if folks want, and are capable of, working for more then I don't see where government has any basis for standing in their way.
But if folks are entitled, as humans, to have everything they need to live, then morally the only thing society owes them is EXACTLY what they need to LIVE and not one cent more.
Society doesn't owe anyone comfort, entertainment, opportunity, or a choice.
“Now it is not good for the Christian’s health to hustle the Aryan brown,
For the Christian riles, and the Aryan smiles and he weareth the Christian down;
And the end of the fight is a tombstone white with the name of the late deceased,
And the epitaph drear: “A Fool lies here who tried to hustle the East.”
Which is why I said a "cost plus" method should be established.
You may pay $10, but others, like me have had to pay upward of over $100/ a month. These kind of payments afford huge bloated salaries for bureaucrats.
