I was told growing up that I won't like socialism once I have to start paying taxes. I pay taxes, but would much rather pay way more taxes to have socialism. Including paying for social programs I wouldn't use like welfare, free tuition etc.
Once I qualified for work pharmacare that was great! But I remember how much it sucked not having any health insurance. Yeah I bootstrapped it, but I'd hope we would grow up as a species and not have to have so much bootstrapping, since there are better ways at this point.

Less loosely speaking; a household (of friends) electing a member to represent them in like a community association? Or a block association etc.
