AdRiaN said:Poverty and Welfare
The welfare state, supposedly designed to aid the poor, is a growing and parasitic burden on all productive working people, and injures rather than benefits the poor themselves. We propose the elimination of all government involvement in welfare and relief programs. Any aid to the poor should be conducted on a voluntary basis.
I have a strong negative impulse against that theory. First of all, it's just a slogan, with no evidence or logic to support its claims. And it just strikes me as wrong-headed and ill-conceived in principle. That said, I don't know too much about the intellectual or academic rigor behind the theory, so my opposition is...spiritual, emotional.
