TOLFA Segment 13, Question 5

Some, too, have to play with an empty deck; that is, they are born mentally deficient and can never manage their own lives. When government-funded mental-care facilities are abolished in a free market society, what will happen to those people? They will prematurely die, and that will be an indictment of the kind of "freedom" being proposed here.
Whoever brought such a person up from birth, will continue through adult-hood, and make financial provision for care to continue when they have died.
Nothing in TOLFA suggests that in a free society charity will shrivel up. On the contrary, everyone will have much more money with which to be generous. Institutions for permanent care will compete for those funds by demonstrating compassion and efficiency.

Don't hurry away; even when you've got the right answer, try clicking on the others to see why they are wrong! Then when you have correctly answered this make notes in your student notebook, go to Question 6.
