“You declared a War on Poverty, aimed at me, when you should have declared a War on Vice, aimed first of all at yourselves.

“You loved your vice more than you loved me. You could afford your vices, but I could not. Your vices made your lives, as you thought, more exciting. I did not have your cushion of wealth, so the same vices destroyed me.

“I was lonely, and you bought me a whore. My sisters were lonely, and you made them into whores.

“I needed the Church, desperately, because when a man is poor, he must face his helplessness every day. But the Church would restrain you, so, at every chance you had, you derided religious faith, and thus you snatched from me my most loyal friend.

“I needed a father, I always needed a father, and you turned your back on me, and told me what you knew was a lie, that a mother or two mothers or a mother and a boyfriend would do just as well. When it didn’t work out, you blamed everything but your own selfishness.

“I needed a married mother and father, what every child needs, what every child has a right to, and you told me to go to hell.

“I went to hell, and have brought it back with me.”

Our government has failed to admit that its own selfishness is the root of many societal problems it has tried to address.

But it makes libtards feel good inside and morally superior when they are able to achieve their goals with government intervention, even if there is a perversity of result that harms the people they are trying to help in the long run. They don't care about the long run as long as they feel good now.

Well and truthfully written in an illustrative and compelling prose, the Socialist has created a monster, and may see vengeance more than once for that creation.

On the editing side, I consider this understated: Government's selfishness is the root of many societal problems

I would propose that Government's selfishness is the root of the overwhelming majority of societal problems.
