Goodnight, moon 

Honestly, I don't see what's so hard about the ethics of this whole Social Security thing. It's pay as you go? Big deal.

While I've been working, my payroll taxes paid for my mother's retirement in dignity (and maybe some other mothers' too. Good).

In Asia, that's called filial piety. I guess that translates to, um, family values in this country, doesn't it?

Since Social Security is a social compact between generations, the same will be done for me, by people who are young now. And they will be taken care of in their turn.

The numbers say this works. And it's also the right thing to do. Whether you're a Confucian, a Christian, or just plain humane.
