In my case, our tax rates are already at a point where I -- as someone who currently makes more than minimum wage -- could be making more money if I left my job to rely on welfare and/or disability.
Plus, I don't know what it's really like in the countries specified in the "comic" but I've been told that in places like Germany -- where higher education is "free" -- it's not like here where you just pursue whatever career you feel suited for. Reportedly, they only allow so many students to study any given major based on perceived social need at the time. Say you want to study medicine, if they've already filled their allotted number of medical students, you'll have to pick another option or maybe try again next time. That's just one of the trade-offs. Freedom of choice for freedom of personal financial responsibility.
No system is perfect. Our current system has its own trade-offs and flaws, but one of its primary freedoms is the liberty of choice.
