If you think everyone would just sit on their asses and mooch off the replicators, I think you are wrong.
Current status of our welfare systems seems to disagree.
Maybe you grew up at least middle class or better, without ever worrying about what's for dinner. Or maybe you grew up poor and are like some former smokers that constantly berate others that still have the habit? As for dinner, is going to be leftovers again? Good, at least there are leftovers.
I'm curious how the current status of our welfare system is different then it was decades ago when my single mother was doing the best she could to make sure my brother and I had food to eat. So, we got food stamps, we got free and awful cheese from our benevolent USDA overlords, and my mom was working her ass off. Two weeks after I turned 16 I got a job working at McDonald's for $3.35 and hour. I was in the Civil Air Patrol by then doing very good and interesting things, because I had enough nutrition and a damned roof over my head, instead of a bridge and a cardboard box. Eventually I served in the Army, but I was always a geek and so here I am now.
We were poor, you stereotyping asshole, and we weren't fucking lazy all the time. I really wish you people that equate needing assistance with laziness were required spend a few years eating government cheese. Or how about military service in a combat zone for all of you entitled jerks?
