The problem with everyone paying into a communal fund to provide for everyone is that not everyone pays into it yet still reap the benefits of everyone else's work.
You know, at some point, one has to move on past the pettiness.
"Waaah, I have to pay and X doesn't, yet X also benefits, it's soooo unfair!" is such a childish way to look at things, quite frankly.
Not to mention quite heartless.
If X is suffering, then we should help X, regardless of his/her ability to pay the bill when all is said and done.
