Socialism took hold immediately after WW2. The most malevolent expression of it was National Health Care. A little over 60 years for the cancer to get to this point.
What Dalrymple says here is true in the US as well. Our black population has probably had more public money spent on it than any single group ever in the entire history of the US, and we are getting exactly what one should expect: resentment and demands for more.
But as the welfare state has spread out its net of dependency, catching people ranging from members of the skilled trades (dependent on government make-work jobs and protection) to university students (living off of grants and "loans" that they do not intend to pay back), we have built a large, seething, sullen group of dependent people for whom whatever is done will never be enough.
