But yes, and in return your born with libraries and roads and you have a safety net available to you should you fail (welfare). You also have the freedom to leave if you don't like it, but I don't think you'll find a better deal (except where they tax more and college and medical are completely free.)

I believe Denmark follows this model and also ranks as one of the happiest places to live.
Norway as well. And guess what? We're also considered one of the best places to live.
