You can understand from the point of view of somebody in need for
support to get his children educated.  But, where should the money
come from?  I think a community should provide its members with the
basic necessities to have a human-like live and to have chance to
improve it.  This requires education, housing, social and physical

Those members who can afford it will have to pay for it.  It falls
back on the community if these members who can not support themselfes
are left out.  I currently live in the US and I pay taxes here.  And I
am OK with it although my kids will probably never go to school here
and I certainly could use the money for something else.
