even in communist countries, they didn't have much but at the very least they had an apartment for themselves!
Yes, because in communistic countries, you don't get to keep what you make. I fled one of those countries. My income tax was 52% and the sales tax was 21%. The government would happily fund up to the equivalent of $2000 to those who had no job (regardless of whether or not that was by choice).
You want to live in a communistic country? Putin will welcome you. Perhaps you can press that little red button next time a Malaysian Airlines flight flies of Ukraine.
Support the country you live in, or go live in the country you support.
