The Makeout Hobo is real, and does indeed travel around the country in his van and make out with ladies... If you meet the Makeout Hobo, it is customary to greet him with a shot of whiskey and a high five (if you are a dude) or passionate makeouts (if you are a lady).
"He who does not think himself worth saving from poverty and ignorance by his own efforts, will hardly be thought worth the efforts of anybody else." -- Frederick Douglass, Self-Made Men (1872)
Just to argue devil's advocate, the major reason why you wouldn't come over with a group of your friends to steal my steaks is because (in a world of anarchy) I might possibly be armed to the teeth and you could very well die. So I guess, when you boil it down, government DOES NOT create morality through legislation. You would not do such a thing because you want to live FIRST and the steaks are not worth a painful death. You would refrain from committing harmful acts against other human beings because of the possible repercussions. Because other human beings are just like you. They just want to live life without annoyance. Those who kill, rape, and molest have little regard to human life and therefore exhibit no decency in the presence or absence of law.
Are you employed? Have you EVER, in your entire life, wished or fantasized about working in some particular field for a living ("What do you do for a living?" haveis often a question about one's own occupation)? If the answer is yes to either one of these questions, then you have, in fact, admired certain occupational positions throughout your life. This wasn't meant to be as deep as, "Who has been your favorite human being(s) in life?" This is more like, "What career would you choose if you had these two choices?"
And who makes society orderly and lawful? Mussolini made the trains run on time. Is that order? And who creates the criminals? The more LAWS you create, the more CRIMINALS you create.
Please also don't forget how the roads started. The sole reason was to increase mobility for military personnel and equipment, and that is a good security reason. The traffic on these roads is stressful for all of us, and "free things" being used by everybody will cause delays no matter what. I'm not particularily against roads and buses, for these are fairly cheap governmental expenditures. I'm more concerned about the ridiculous rail idea, a financial money pit that will help to bankrupt the country.
I'm just criticizing your two suggestions. I feel I shouldn't have to go on about the economic wonders that occur when you let individuals drive their own lives.
If you are underpaid, then go somewhere where the market demands your services. The market dictates prices, based on the conscious decisions of multi-billions of people. If your labor is only worth so much, then get a new skill or go somewhere they'll pay you more. No one sulking in his or her own misery ever achieved success.
