Why Welfare Fails

Paul from Pukete

You cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the industrious out of it. You don't multiply wealth by dividing it. Government cannot give anything to anybody that it doesn't first take from somebody else. Whenever somebody receives something without working for it, somebody … View moreYou cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the industrious out of it. You don't multiply wealth by dividing it. Government cannot give anything to anybody that it doesn't first take from somebody else. Whenever somebody receives something without working for it, somebody else has to work for it without receiving. The worst thing that can happen to a nation is for half of the people to get the idea they don't have to work because somebody else will work for them, and the other half to get the idea that it does no good to work because they don't get to enjoy the fruits of their labor.

Equity vs covid

Paul from Pukete

Equity means equality of outcome.

The reason the concept of equity resonates with people in the West today is because it accords with our desires for every one to be treated fairly and equally.

Equity means equality of outcome.

The reason the concept of equity resonates with people in the West today is because it accords with our desires for every one to be treated fairly and equally.



We are naturally cynical when someone professes a belief in a virtue but then fails to put that belief into practice in their own life. The idea of judging a person by their actions rather than by their words has longstanding merit for this reason­.

Why should one demand all others provide them with the means to achieve equal outcomes, without first redistributing their own wealth equally to the individuals in their own to show their own, unequivocal commitment to equity? Where is the equity in that?



Just as the individuals that demand preferential treatment with the covid vaccination fail to participate fully when it is freely offered

Entitlement

Paul from Pukete

The couple that went to Wanaka in breach of Covid 19 rules showed a sense of entitlement, both in their believe that they could , and the scamming of the essential workers exemption to achieve their aim.

Further entitlement ensues with because the parent of one of them is a high ranking official their names should be suppressed

so it looks like entitlement is intergenerational ...or a learned behaviour



They do not wished to be shamed.



There is no father figure here , Saying my son / daughter transgressed, I offer my apologies for their behaviour , and expect the full force of the law to apply..as we are not above it...

Entitlement needs to be stamped out



What part of society breeds this arrogance, what no doubt elite school did they attend, that fostered such believes or at the very least did not curb them.

We need to know, to place them along with such schools that have recently been exposed as hotbeds of abuse.



We need an onslaught of internet memes that exposes the perpetuation of entitlement, the disconnect that emboldens all those that believe they are beyond the law of the rest of mere mortals







We shoot a terrorist running amok with a knife,,,the potential real harm of spreading covid is just a lethal to those that catch it.



Lets start an Facebook post Entitlement is..........you all fill in the blanks
