Question: If you can choose 3 things that should be free for everyone what would they be?
Answer: Actually I wouldn’t give anything for free. Our inherent nature – that makes constant egoistic, self-serving calculations – can’t appreciate anything that is free.
A free gift that is not very worthy ends up lost, disregarded, “placed in the attic”. On the other hand when we receive something worthy, important for free, we feel burning shame, we feel lowly, worthless, unless we can reciprocate in some way.
Thus even for the most crucial things people need to receive – like education, health service, basic survival necessities – we have to organize a system where people would be required to “pay”, each according to their abilities, resources.
This is the basis of the only viable, sustainable and fair Human system called “mutual guarantee”.
