California gubernatorial candidate Jerry Brown advocates doing away with the private sector:
The conventional viewpoint says we need a jobs program and we need to cut welfare. Just the opposite! We need more welfare and fewer jobs. Jobs for every American is doomed to failure because of modern automation and production. We ought to recognize it and create an income-maintenance system so every single American has the dignity and the wherewithal for shelter, basic food, and medical care. I’m talking about welfare for all.
When I first read that, I LOLed so hard that I spit my fruit punch all over my monitor.
