Right but there is something to be said for creating activity when interest rates are so low. Also, if someone on unemployment is suddenly plunged into desperation and bankruptcy, the net negative is far worse. Social costs are not just a matter of cutting someone loose and "forcing" them to make it, they damage and economy.Also, screwing the poor when GE pays now taxes is simply not sane.

Liberalism offers up a utopian vision of the world and then invites its practitioners to feel good about themselves for embracing it. Not only does this beautiful fantasy world never come to pass, liberalism fails to address the root causes of the problems it sets out to solve while creating whole new disasters in the process. In other words, it's a never ending circle. There's a problem, liberalism is offered up as the solution, it doesn't work and creates more problems, for which liberalism is offered up as the solution, etc., etc., etc. until you're starving, bankrupt, or your society...
