What would you consider actions that would classify anyone as a non-contributing member of society? I would argue that there is no such thing. An integral and inherent part if being a member if western society is to be a consumer, which in turn benefits the manufacturer and distributor of the goods consumed, which benefits society. Moreover, an objective and fair measurement of ones contribution to society would be nigh on impossible to establish, and the implementation of one would assuredly lead to the abuse of any such system by those in power.
