I’ve been seeing this picture on the internet and I think it brings up a good point. That we are not entitled to our neighbors property. We are not entitled to any fruits of his or her labor.
A great video with Milton Friedman explaining the problems of the welfare system. One of the main points that is brought up seems to be the idea that government is not an efficient way to implement assistance to needy families. When it comes to economic assistance, each case is going to have different needs. We currently have a welfare trap in this country. The way the system operates actually keeps the very people it was meant to help in poverty.
"One of the greatest mistakes is to judge policies and programs by their intentions rather than their results." - Milton Friedman
