Do you subscribe to teaching a person how to fish so they can be self reliant, or do you subscribe to giving that person a piece of fish so they can be dependent on you? Look at Greece that subscribed to the latter. Now the government is cutting pensions, wages, services just to survive. This is what happens in a society that has lost the ability to want to stand on their own. Sure some cannot, but way too many today could do a lot more to help themselves. In a desire to help kids, our school system provide a hot breakfast, lunch and now some a dinner? What are the parents doing? Are we not enabling? Mostly, are things better for these policies?
