The Raw Essence of the Welfare State

Mac Slavo sums up the welfare state nicely:

In America, those who work get punished. Those who don’t, get a free ride, courtesy of a nationwide policy of spreading the wealth around through confiscation and redistribution.

This is known in liberal circles as “social justice.” If it doesn’t enrage you, have a listen to what a freeloader named Lucy had to say when she called in to a show on Austin’s KLBJ:

“While workers out there or people like you that are preaching morality at people like me living on welfare, can you really blame us?

“I mean, I get to sit home. I get to go visit my friends all day. I even get to smoke weed. Me and my friends, people that I know that are illegal immigrants that don’t contribute to society, we still gonna get paid. Our check’s gonna come in the mail every month, and it’s gonna be on time, and we get subsidized housing. We even get presents delivered for our kids on Christmas. Why should I work?

“So, you know what?

“Y’all get the benefit of saying, ‘Oh, look at me, I’m a better person’ … because y’all go to go work. We’re the ones getting paid. So can you really blame us?”

What is to motivate Lucy to start pulling the cart instead of riding in it, morality? Our country formerly dispensed with morality back in the Clinton era.

Of every form of slavery ever devised, welfare statism is the most unjust, because it enslaves the best to the worst, punishing every quality that lifts the human race, and rewarding every flaw that drags it down.

No society that doesn’t cure itself of liberalism can hope to survive, or should even want to.
