Its hard to endorse an idea without knowing more of the details, but this article suggests an idea worth considering. Replacing the current social safety net with one that is both simpler and more effective sounds great. Especially when looked at from the Alaskan perspective.
Alaska has a small version, called a Permanent Fund Dividend, which is incredibly popular and made the state one of the most economically equal places in America. Importantly, Alaskans don’t consider it “redistribution,” but rather “joint ownership.”
You can’t argue that America, as a country, is successful, and we might even say profitable. If we accept the premise that all citizens jointly own what this country represents and what it is to be American, then you could look at the safety net as a reward for the general success of our country, society, and government. If we accept that social stability and the absence of civil unrest are essential elements of what makes our country successful then we have to accept that they are parts of what make all companies operating here successful. If we turn around the idea and the nature of the safety net from redistribution or entitlement to reward for joint ownership we could develop a platform that delivers the social stability needed.
