Death By Handout

Friday, September 01, 2006

I just finished an excellent article about government handouts and the destruction those handouts cause. Retta Fontana make a compelling argument for abolishing government charities like Social Security because they cause people to do just enough to get by. In their giving of false security, the state erects a safety net under the downtrodden that's underwritten by the taxpayer. Where normally individuals would have to pull themselves up, the state has stepped in and short-circuited the survival mechanism inherent in each of us. In her article, Retta takes a look at three individuals who receive welfare and documents the destruction caused be getting something for nothing.
Oh, and while you're reading this article, you should keep in mind that you paid for this.
