How can society’s disabled be cared for without a social safety net?
My main ax to grind with libertarians and that they don’t believe in having mandated taxes to cover for social safety nets. They argue the people should voluntarily donate to those who actually need help. The problem is the load that puts on those who care. If only 20% of people care enough to donate to those in need, that either means they need to contribute 5x as much to care for those in need, or society loses 80% of it’s base for helping the disabled.
It’s the same logic as having public fire departments, private fires can impose a societal cost like how no safety nets impose a burden on those who wish to help.
How do we address the proper welfare of the people when in practice, most people don’t care enough for the disabled to voluntarily help the disabled.
