If you don't want to be a citizen and join the workforce then why should you get to live in a socialist country?

In the DDR being homeless, while you were physically able to work was a crime punishable by up to 2 years prison/forced labor. This ensured that everyone worked and thus everyone was assigned housing.

The DDR wasn't fascist, that's just ignorant. Do you have a better plan to cure homelessness than making sure everyone is employed and housed?

If someone is able to work but but refuses to work they are putting a strain on the entire society.

What kind of society do you envision where no one has to work? How will anything get done?

You said communism is the same as slavery because people have to work to make a healthy society, you're a reactionary.
