The idea that only government can address poverty or medical research is false, and the philosophy clearly institutionalizes mob rule. When one man can be made a sacrifice for another, you’re either predator or prey. Each individual’s life becomes chum to be “the public good” whatever central planners in Washington decide that might be.
What results is a society built not on mutual benefit, as with capitalism, but mutual contempt, whereas one is endlessly forced to sacrifice for “the public” with the only hope that one day others will be conscripted to sacrifice themselves for you. Social Security and Medicare are just two examples of this multi-generational feudalism.
