  • family (much less certain with family breakdown, while minimum wages leave little to share, and no one likes a ‘sponger’ who is seen as ‘second class’)
  • charity (creating both bureaucracy and second class citizens)
  • tax (creating both bureaucracy and second class citizens)
  • crime (a rational response to exclusion)

  2. won’t it engender dissolute idleness? And the related concern: if everyone is being paid to do nothing, who will do the work required to provide the things and services we need?
