You are exactly right. I’ve thought for awhile that the welfare state is God’s punishment on all of us for not doing as much as we could or should. By the way, I’ve always found you to be probably the most fascinating poster on here. Before I became a member and would just lurk, I would read your posts on globalism. At first I thought it was crazy, but that was simply denial on my part. The fact is, it’s the only explanation for what’s gone on for decades.
