Society human capital arguments aren't my favorite

Hi b,

Personally I'm not a big fan of the government doing things to shape a society as a mass, meaning that we as individuals should be given the same treatment in order to meet a collective goal. I think everything you write in the second paragraph is likely true, but I still wouldn't want the government manipulating all of us to achieve a specific goal.

I don't want me and my children to be considered human capital towards a social goal.
