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.

Former border worker who lost her job after not getting jabbed loses High Court challenge 

The judge said section 11 of the bill of rights provided that everyone had the right to refuse to undergo any medical treatment.

The court’s task in this case was to balance the benefit of the vaccine and the risk of being unvaccinated against any discrimination in relation to those affected, he said. 

I acknowledge everybody's right to choose not to get vaccinated, as long as they acknowledge my right/choice  to choose who enters into my personal space be that home, business, whatever    

As your choice endangers my welfare, my families and my business ,nothing personal, just my choice i respect yours .all i ask is you respect mine
Simple as that really
