Does this sound fair to you?

Standard

In my opinion, the things I feel I have a responsibility to say and do not only generate no income, they are a hindrance to generating better income.  I think I need to put in a lot more work, pain and suffering contributing what I feel is of highest value to society than those who just work full-time their entire lives (and think that all paid work is somehow a real contribution) and get to enjoy a more regular lifestyle.

Even in Canada, it takes months to find (and get approved for) an individual insurance plan (independent of plans paid by employers) that will cover the antidepressants I wouldn’t need to be taking if the system wasn’t set up for the wealthy elites.  I feel the moment you stop working, everything is rescinded.  The only reason this occurs is because those who support keeping people unnecessarily poor fare better in this system than those fighting against it, (in my opinion.)

Aside

When looking at unemployment statistics, remember that many bloggers and full-time social activists would technically fall in the category of “unemployed.”  Does this mean we are providing no service to humanity?

For me, I’m doing my work while living off my parents at the moment.  I wouldn’t mind being subsidized by some type of monetary subsistence program that provides basic funding for those who are more interested in independent pursuits with no backing from any private organization or institution.
