Using low lectin/nightshade free primal to control autoimmune arthritis. (And lost 50 lbs along the way )
That made you seem really naive and callow to me. It's as if you have no idea what human suffering and compassion is (in either case).

In all of the universe there is only one person with your exact charateristics. Just like there is only one person with everybody else's characteristics. Effectively, your uniqueness makes you pretty average.
The answer, of course, is "as much as the state wants". If I don't comply, my freedom will eventually be taken, at gunpoint if necessary, at which point your wealth will pay for my imprisonment.
The error in your thinking is the presumed connection between the state and human compassion.

In addition Cro-Magnon 1’s fungal infection, several of the individuals found at the shelter had fused vertebrae in their necks indicating traumatic injury, and the adult female found at the shelter had survived for some time with a skull fracture. The survival of the individuals with such ailments is indicative of group support and care, which allowed their injuries to heal."
