I could see a nightmare scenario with poorly implemented "click to buy" or voting websites. Some nations, in the cases of stuff like CP, make it illegal to access websites containing banned material. Now mousing over links can look identical to accessing, according to log files. What a mess.

Don't stress, that's exactly what I did, for the same reasons. You'd be surprised how cheap a trailer in the middle of the Rocky Mountains is, and how peaceful and affordable life can be even on a meagre disability income. Don't work yourself to death, there's still plenty of land for everyone. The only stress I have is picking my cherries off the tree before the local bear realizes they're ripe.

There's 2 ways to deal with the poor.

1) Share. Help them out or give a hand up. At the very least give them a decent chance of helping themselves. The USA doesn't do enough of this.
2) Leave them to rot and let the rich/poor divide get so big, that the people on the bottom lose all hope. Then, the law ceases to matter.

If you choose 2, don't be surprised when the most desperate start shooting.
