Default Re: How To Eradicate Poverty

Here is one very weird thought - for the question - where does money come from.

1. Everyone gets free basic necessities.
2. Every child that is born is already indebted to the society for the free necessities.
3. From the money he earns, the Govt gets 10% until his debt has been paid.
4. If something untoward happens and he dies before paying his debt - thats taken as bad debts.

How does that sound for paying for the basic necessities of life for everyone?

Too whacky? Too socialist or something?
