I wish I had written this....

Well written indeed. Jaded Haven has a few words to say regarding the situation in Great Britain... and here as well.

I happen to believe that you strip a man of his dignity and humanity when you treat him like an ignorant, incapable animal. He becomes a dangerous pet to be fed and housed, pandered and lied to, in order to gain his complacency for your act of cruel altruism."

The absolute truth.

At the risk of sounding like a prim, narrow church lady: Anyone who is not grateful for "assistance," does not truly NEED assistance, because he can live without it. Feeling entitled is not the same a needing.

That particular brand of altruism is indeed cruel; it breeds failure by making success optional. Then it isolates those who are failing, making success foreign to them. After a couple of generations, they are utterly lost. Oh, and the cage we keep them in is broken. Here they come.
