We are supposed to be humane and not animals, who discard their weak animals in survival of the fittest.
However, in some organised societies, the social insurance system is a tool used to stream line the minority, such that the overall system, voted into power by the majority in democracy, maintains steady financial growth, by ensuring that they optimally utilise even the minority efficiently, who are in this case the sick, disabled or needy people, and do it so professionally, by hiding it with countless procedures, that the majority find it tough to realise, that the social system is caring for the weak, in the same way a horse owner will care for his sick race horse, to get the maximum financial benefit out of racing the horse until it's mortally crippled.
So, how does the social system operate in your country?
A quote from a person in the Asia:
"In this part of Asia, people believe more in themselves rather than a collective system, so we pay far less tax and try to save for the bad days as apposed to the western world. With that in mind most of welfare is just to keep one barely alive, so consider yourself lucky if you are in the west ... it can be worse here"
It is better to save for your self, than to be conned by a system that takes years of payments and gives you nothing when something happens, because they have perfect procedures that guarantees no payout, emphasis on the take, because there is no option, you have to pay it.
In my working life I could have saved a fortune with all those forced social insurance payments I made, enough to survive now, but now I am forced to beg for what I was insured for and treated like a criminal.
