Putting all of a nation's survival eggs in an all powerful welfare state beast basket is a fool's game, because every government is going to fail at some point.
For over 6,000 years until the "New Deal" came along no government or ruler ever had the guts and gall to take on the awesome financial burden of being a mass social and family provider.
It certainly will be a miracle if we can keep our hide and recover from this liberal social and family provider role power grab. And to this day the USA government is still drunk on the power of being an all powerful super sugar daddy provider.
If a government do fail and doesn’t have a strong nuclear and extended family system to sustain it, it will either be taken over, or regress back to the Stone Age, period.
