21st Century Slavery

Jesus did not teach dependency, he taught freedom.  Simple as that.

Christ was the first Objectivist – see Ayn Rand.

Christian charity does not create dependency, it is an act of love and compassion, meant to improve the lot of the recipient and benefactor alike.  We give to support life, because we love and value LIFE, our own and that of another man. Free men do not strive to be alone in the world, atop a pile of starved corpses. They seek to be surrounded by other men who produce and accomplish things big and small. That is our nature – to be acquisitive, collaborative and productive. We value that above all things, especially above death. Lives matter to free men. We know that free men produce more than they consume – for proof, just look around – all those things are from human effort, not magic.

State welfare encourages dependency, it robs men of control of their lives and empowers the state to tell the ‘beneficiaries’ how and where to live, what to eat and [soon] where to spend your federal grant for tuition. It says “if you want to keep getting this check/voucher, then you can’t work, you can’t move, you can only eat what we want you to eat and live where we tell you to live — oh, and by the way, if you don’t vote the right way, the check might stop coming.”

Why does that not-so-well-disguised version of slavery exist in Lincoln’s America?
