My ideal country would kick some people into gear instead of letting them leech. Most people would be better off, the only people who would be worse off would be the current drains who still refused to put themselves in a position to finance their own lives and live responsibly. There would be some casualties, but overall, everyone would be better off because the average person is currently financing the leeches, those average people would be better off. So if the average/majority is better off, that's how it should be. It's for the greater good that the government play less of a role and take less of our money. Because they use it so badly and inefficiently
Keep in mind that even if you're someone who is a drain 'sometimes', as long as you're, on average, not a drain, you'd be better off. Because you'd have enough extra cashflow in your positive cashflow days that you'd be able to better fund the bad times better than the government does (by nature of how government wastes)
The only people who would be worse off would be the people who are, on average, drains, their whole lives. Those people would need to smarten up, take responsibility, and live responsible lives. If they did, they'd be better off as well. If they didn't, they'd be worse off.
So for the greater good of most people, the government should have less access to our money, and the only people who will suffer are those who are drains who do not put themselves in a position to stop being drains. Because, there'd be less for them to drain from. But overall, the majority would be better off.
So this is not a 'me me me' thing. It's selfish in the sense that, yes, we wouldn't be funding the drains of society. But I don't think there's anything wrong with telling the person who is a drain, 'sorry, you can't take so much of our money anymore' and I don't think there's anything wrong with telling government 'sorry, you can't waste our money so much anymore, you need to use it more efficiently because you're going to get less of it to use'
