Being a "shareholder" gets your basic needs taken care of. Food, housing, healthcare, education and employment opportunities that pay a living wage. Why does everyone try to complicate a fairly simple concept? Government collects taxes to pay for basic social services.
It's being done all over the place. And it's working. Other countries have socialized healthcare and they aren't becoming the Soviet Union.
Other countries offer free college tuition and they aren't turning into Venezuela.
