So you believe that freedom fiscally and socially are mutually exclusive?
It may be a natural reaction of people who are poor to commit armed robbery, but that doesn't mean we should make it legal.
People may want government intervention when they fuck up their own life, but it doesn't mean we should build a government around it.
I also think you have it backwards. I think it is more that government intervention is what has lead to a society of dependents who then turn around and demand more handouts. You are forgetting that much (if not most) of the fuck ups society ends up paying for are government, not individual ones.
More often than not the government is trying to fix problems it created in the first place.
