Shameless Society, Part 2

 

Thomas Sowell treats us to a fantastic two-fer this week. His second column is about how the left confuses compassion with dependency, and does more in two sentences than I did in several paragraphs.

Helping those who have been struck by unforeseeable misfortunes is fundamentally different from making dependency a way of life.

Although the big word on the left is “compassion,” the big agenda on the left is dependency.

Here’s two more for good measure:

The intelligentsia have for decades been promoting the idea that there should be no stigma to accepting government handouts. Living off the taxpayers is portrayed as a “right” or — more ponderously — as part of a “social contract.”
