Once our victory is secure there should be little to no need for a large army, unless you live in Europe and are that countries like France, Germany, Russia, etc are going to try to reclaim their old borders.
Besides there are other ways to fund a military like war bonds and even just diverting revenue from other products, and even if that's not enough to pay for it, using that as your primary means will reduce the tax burden. On the subject of taxes don't just tax you rich/business owners for the war effort, as it will make what is arguably your most important economic class resentful of you, which inevitably will either lead to your government replacing them, which will have immediate negative effects on the economy (loss of confidence in those businesses, those new managers likely won't be as competent due to being political appointees and even if they are not there is still a reason they didn't have those jobs to begin with) or long term ones for granting those businesses concessions which will almost ways create a loop of
>business with gibs fucks over workers and competition
>workers get gebs to make up for worse work
>business gets new gibs to make up for the cost of unions
We've seen this cycle in almost every western country.
That's what charities and homeless shelters are for, something which we have even in our cucked system and likely will still have in your ideal one, and even if for whatever reason that doesn't pan out she still likely has friends and family that can lend a hand.
But beyond that there are quite a few things she can do to improve her situation like finding a job sewing, cooking, cleaning, write a book/help new mothers on how to raise children.
And depending on why she is homeless (I'm going to assume she doesn't have a husband for the sake of this) if she has something going for her she can possibly get remarriade, or, if the father fucked off, then he can be brought back and made to do his job.
has been part of European culture since at least the aryan conquest of india, since we have evidence that they drank it.
You have a fair point on that, however once the government (or anyone really) starts making money on it, it will become very hard to ban that thing, especially if it's in some nebulas future.
And that's not even getting into the problems of driving an industry like that underground, just look at the drug war.
