I really enjoyed this movie, too, for many of the reasons listed above. But I'm wondering if all the tools Gardner took advantage of in the movie (ie: shelters, food shelters, public transportation, etc.) would and should exist in a free market society. Those are the things that kept him and his son alive while he was trying to get a job, and I can't see how he would have made it without those resources.

In a free society, people would place a greater value on charity (since there wouldn't be a government acting as a safety net, that would become the role of charitable organization).
