Interrupt Your Regularly Scheduled Programming
I agree with most everything Ben says here except at the end. He is wrong about belonging to the state. Why do you think it is required to have a birth certificate, marriage license, etc... because these documents make you property of the state. When you cut through all the "bull" that is all they do. I like what Ben is trying to do, but it is far worse than he tells. We are so far beyond talking about what is wrong. "They" have control of everything now. The only way not to be part of the "system" is to not be part of the system.
If you want welfare (i.e., an insurance subsidy), then you're going to have to give up your personal info. But guess what, if you want to take advantage of the welfare system, just withhold info LOL Don't tell them about your cancer until you after you jump on board with your preexisting condition. Opt out until you need these garbage welfare programs. Only go to see your own personal friend who's a doctor and who will tell you your issues confidentially (of course that may require paying out of your own pocket). Don't tell the IRS about that money you pocketed for your all-cash biz. Seems that in this age, disclosing info puts you at a weakness, and not disclosing it gives you an advantage where others pay your welfare ticket. I would have rather been in a non-welfare system, but if the state's headed that way, I'm taking full advantage LOLOL
