Some people will always lie, cheat, and steal to get by and even get ahead. Abusing a welfare system is no different.
Equality, fairness, and justice are mythic ideals and pure human fantasy.
Strive with righteous anger all you want to reach them because it will likely make you a better man but in the end we live in a cruel unforgiving reality and entropy is the master of us all.
All animals are opportunistic thieves and scavengers and this is an inescapable fact to which none of us are exempt.
We all want to believe that we have some quality that makes us superior and worthy of the life we have. We all want to believe that we somehow earned it.
But in the end the universe is precise. We live in a net sum zero gain reality and if you have gained it is always because another has lost. Symbiosis is a peculiar quality of life that seems to veil this truth but only at a very superficial level.
Perhaps this sounds overly philosophical but it is actually as basic as gravity.
Quite simply you are just as likely to remove all microbes, diseases, and parasites from your body as you are to remove humans that imitate their behavior from a society. In other words it is impossible without total annihilation of both.
Remove the welfare system as a host and the parasite will just find another.
Don’t mistake me I am not disagreeing that the system is imperfect and we should seek to perfect it. I even concede that hatred and anger may well be the right avenue to seek this end.
I really do believe that it is within the striving for the impossible that humans rise to whatever greatness we are capable of.
I am just pointing out that any animal should be wary of hubris. You too have been given a GIFT in the form of life and it is only at the great expense of the many that any one of us enjoys whatever we may claim to call our own.
Its quite clever that humans even invent such a thing as a welfare system to try and cheat ourselves out of the harshness of reality. It of course is no surprise that cheating will only get us so far.
