We need a state people for:

providing food, clothing and shelter to the poor
providing medical care and education to all
building roads, train lines, water pipes and sewers
funding research, including testing of pharmaceuticals
protecting public health
defending the nation
prosecuting perpetrators of crimes whether committed on a street or in a bank office
regulating businesses so they don't harm our health or our environment
ensuring workers can form unions; preventing exploitative working conditions
making sure employers don't steal employees' wages
inspecting foods for safety
Making sure products contain what they claim to contain and the stated amount, too
banning digital products that do DRM or censorship
reducing CO2 emissions to save us from global heating disaster
ensure that chemical products are not toxic
and protecting human rights for all
