"get a job pay taxes go to the army contribute to society let people have their democracy and freedom' Sorry to tell you, JS, but these commandments aren't written in the Torah, so the haredim don't consider such goyishe narrishkeit to be binding. They tend to forget certain inconvenient ancient Rabbinic dicta, such as the obligation of every father to teach his son a trade; or the interdiction on separating oneself from the rest of the (Jewish) public; or the wish expressed in the after-dinner Grace "not to make us dependent on the largesse of humankind, or on their loans but [only] on Your full, open and generous Hand, so that we may never be shamed or embarassed." [my translation] Unless the haredim think the tazpaying secular public is God, of course.
