ChuckyBob's comment in response to the voting
privilege post gives us a fine starting point for the
evaluation of our willingness to give up freedom
to receive government sustenance. . what do you
think??? -- john

    I wonder if it's more complicated than that because the Founder's of the US were materially poorer than most people today, but were still concerned about freedom. I wonder if the problem is infrastructure built around a certain level of wealth. Maybe an example would we be a city designed around cars would make not having a car difficult. This would not be an issue before cars were invented.
