Title: Only Four Ways to Be Supported

There are just 4 ways to be supported that I know of:

1. Earn a Living from your own work-efforts, in which case you exchange what you have to contribute to the benefit of others in the world in exchange for an income; or

2. Exchange what you have to offer another person in some conjugal (or other) relationship in exchange for your support; or

3. Live on pre-acquired money like rents, life insurance proceeds or pension plans, the consumption of prior obtained capital, etc., or

4. Live on welfare or the charity of others and thus subject to the whims of government or continuing charitable feelings and/or financial means of family or friends.
