1. as opposed to tying insurance to the state, where it can fine/jail people who cannot afford it, and drive down quality of care by dictating prices to caregivers which do not reflect their costs/market realities. I have an idea: don't make insurance mandatory, for anything. It is slavery for those who really can't afford it.
2. At least they are working. Unemployment benefits are for those who are cannot get work or cannot work due to extreme disability.
3. I consider the cultural marxist/PC indoctrination going on at public schools as a dumbing down. Identity politics are what give people these dependent attitudes by constructing these castes in their minds. Teaching them how to think critically/out of box, along with some life skills seems to be at the bottom of the priority list. This was true as of the early/mid 1990s when I was at one of the supposedly 'better' public systems in the country. For example, a lot of time was spent on 'suffrage' of various groups, and very little was spent on our financial system. Health class was a mouthpiece for gay rights activists and feminists, and teachers were more concerned about someone bringing a metal fork to eat his lunch than they were about his mastery of algebra. It's most likely worse today.
4. I don't have a problem with birth control, but I do have a problem with the left giving women all the trump cards. If men are going to be held accountable for her choice, then they should have valid sway over said choices. It won't be 'social justice' until her body, her right, her choice, is also solely her responsibility. It's not just 'a woman's issue' if he is held even the slightest bit accountable for her behavior or choice. In fact, I think abortions are the only thing the state should fund for unmarried women. It's cheaper than dealing with the poorly raised thugspawns later. Society needs to encourage mommy to get daddy back in the home as a valid authority figure, or no state aid for the would-be kid, and daddy should have a choice in that, too. Men should not be slaves of this system. Of course, even bringing up this discussion causes feminist heads to explode. It's that identity politics entitlement complex talking.
5. Ideologically charged science is always a bad idea. While the neocons have vested interests in torpedoing climatology, the left has accepted these positions because they imply a greater role for government. It's not like they don't also have a selfish motive, here, that biases scientific objectivity.
