Education and Healthcare - User pays or universal? ¶
This is probably the best location to pose this question as it is related to societal equity and economic resources. While I appreciate that an Asgardian education and healthcare system are many, many steps down the road, I thought it worthwhile to pose this question now since some countries have spent over a century grappling the the pros and cons of both. Universal systems obviously come at a cost to government that has to be resourced by some means, but arguably provide greater protection and opportunities for citizens than a full user pays system. Is there some other model for providing these essential services that would work in a space nation?
