If not, too bad. Just die. Great philosophy. But, I guess in your mind it is "fair". Can we at least call
it fascism?"

Believe it or not people often do help friends and relatives in need like this. Also, there is a thing called insurance to protect yourself against the calamities you list above.

The dictionary lists fascism as a "political philosophy that exalts nation and race above the individual and that stands for a centralized autocratic government headed by a dictatorial leader...". How do you compare disagreeing with you about the sensibility of Social Security with this definition?
