Or like Ayn Rand taking her SS and medicare benefits.
Being forced into an insurance program isn't the same as Marx willfully taking advantage of workers.
No one forced her to accept Govt largesse.
She was forced into the program. She paid her money into it for little return at the end. You are just being your typical self here.
I love how anyone can just post a video on the internet and all of a sudden it's proof of established fact.
Socialism starts with a social contract. Any questions?
Most frequently it has been imposed through force with no social contract involved.
Can you name any examples?
Nations of the Soviet Union.
How many revolutions start with a social contract? Even our own didn't.
You mean the benefits she was FORCED to pay for? How dare her collect what she had no choice but to contribute to.
It would be hypocrisy if she had an actual CHOICE in the matter and still collected them but progressives usually don't understand hypocrisy too well.
Actually, her contributions to social security and medicare are forced.
We were looking for an example of "Socialism starts with a social contract". Answers to questions, not questions offered in response to those questions.
Socialism starts with a social contract and establishes a State and statism.
Don't feed the troll
Libertarian philosophy, which was embraced by our Founders, holds that we all own ourselves ... free to make our own choices, so long as we do not infringe on the free choices of others. Socialism has never, and can never work, because it infringes on the rights of others. Should we all be free to make our own choices and, therefore, pay the piper for those choices ... there would be no room for justifiable blame. The GOP is stuck in the middle, inching its way toward the socialist left. Libertarianism is halfway between the center and anarchy. I will always embrace the opinion that libertarianism should never move too far from the right. "Anarchism is founded on the observation that, since few men are wise enough to rule themselves, even fewer are wise enough to rule others." ~ Edward Abbey
