i'm not aware of any "social contract", only coercion and brain washing one might benefit from. if i'm wrong, please show me the document. defacto solidarity is usually scarce and superficial, many times stopping at the most racist line, immediate blood ties (nuclear family).
did you ever sign or negotiate said contract?
did you give consent?
are babies held responsible for these contracts they made, or you don't have to be of sound mind or legal age to make such a great deal?
is there any collateral set aside by the ones who wrote the contract?
who interprets the clauses, is the power balance taken into account when doing so?
how proficient are you in contract law?
