BillW, we know the pattern well.  If any society anywhere creates an adequate safety net such that falling into it is not terrifying, the masses will come running from all corners of the globe to leap into it.  This process continues until that net fails.  The Scandinavian countries are appalled witnesses of the process playing out in real time.

No matter what the details of who runs what, this is an absolutely universal truth.
