There's a difference between the OP's stop funding all wars and your defunding the military.
No (federal) social programs means a number of things. Lazy but capable people will have the choice of work or die. Truly incapable people will have to rely on charity and state and local programs. Charitable giving will increase because the end of social programs will mean that working people have more money, and more working people means more available goods. As people realize they are responsible for their own well-being, troublemakers like rioters and Soros-funded protesters will get less respect and will be more likely to be shot when they try to steal from honest folk. This will tend to put a lid on rioting.
The US dollar is already destroyed, having lost about 98% of its value over the last century. Other countries' governments and people in responsible positions in large financial institutions recognize that fact. Making the fact public will hurt short term public confidence, but if it results in US finances being put on a sound basis (a political decision) then the dollar will become a stable standard at perhaps 50% of its current value.

Pay people to work, so that they earn what they consume. Neither taxes nor murder is required, nor should those government-inspired practices be a part of a civilized society.
40 hours/week is what most people consider a reasonable tradeoff between free time and being able to buy more nice stuff. It's also an indication to your employer that you're serious about your job, that you're worth pouring more resources into and worth being considered for promotion.
Somebody working 30 hours a week is a dilettante, not serious about his job and not invested in the success of his employer's business.
As an employer, who do you want working for you?
undertaking work of public benefit
"Public benefit" will be things like signing up people to campaign for the party in power, and doing such campaigning. "Public benefit" includes things like enrolling illegal aliens in welfare programs. It's a political smokescreen.
Put not your trust in money, but put your money in trust.
