    Questions to be considered:

    This is a follow-up to my first thread in a series of threads I intend for the forum. The first thread can be found at:
    http://www.onlinedebate.net/forums/s...ist?highlight=


    I’m going to switch tracks for a bit…a move that should head us in the direction the overall concept I am talking about should go. I am going to do this in a series of questions I’d like to be considered by anyone interested…and for them to offer comments. The questions, for the sake of this thread, apply ONLY to the United States.

    I am asking your opinions on these things. Other stuff will crop up for you during your consideration of the questions, but do try to at least cover the question itself.


    First (a two parter):

    Do we have a sufficient food supply so that EVERYONE could easily have two reasonably, nutritious meals (say, a good breakfast and a good dinner) available every day?

    And if everyone had those two reasonable, nutritious meals every day would that mean that the “very well off” would have to make do with less in the way of food?


    Second (they're all two parters):

    Can we easily produce enough clothing (shirts, pants, dresses, underwear, socks, shoes, coats, and the like) so that EVERYONE could be fully and functionally clothed?

    And if everyone were fully and functionally clothed…would that mean that the “very well off” would have to make do with less in the way of clothing?


    Third:

    Can we easily produce enough in the way of physicians, dentists, nurses, medical specialists, medical facilities, and medical equipment to insure that EVERYONE have sufficient medical care?

    And if everyone had sufficient medical care…would that mean that the “very well off” would have to make do with less in the way of medical care?


    Fourth:

    Can we easily provide sufficient teachers, professors, researchers, and educational facilities so that EVERYONE can obtain a decent education if they desire?

    And if everyone who wants one were to obtain a decent education…would that mean that the “very well off” would have to make do with a lesser education?


    Fifth:

    Can we easily provide a reasonable (not luxurious) means of transportation (both private and public) for EVERYONE who needs and wants such transportation?

    If we did provide a means of transportation for everyone…would that mean that the “very well off” would have to make do with lesser transportation in any way?


    Sixth:
    Can we easily provide a means of access to communication and Internet for EVERYONE who needs or wants such access?

    IF we did provide such assess for everyone…would that mean that the “very well off” would have to give up any part of their access to those things in any way?


    Seventh:

    Can we easily provide shelter…a place of abode…for EVERYONE, so that nobody has to live in the streets exposed to the elements?

    If we do, will the “very well off” have to give up the homes they have?
