Thread Name: BS: Benefits/Welfare.
Subject: RE: BS: Benefits/Welfare.
Hi Marta ...good to hear from you again...As you rightly say I started this discussion....In an effort to get at the truth ,and once again ,facts seem to be getting in the way..In my opinion, our governmentsdont give a shit abouthow people feel about themselves ...or getting them out of poverty . It seems nowadays ,there is always going to be a large section of society which is going to be "unproductive", for a variety of reasons.
To keep this mass fed, watered and quiet,the government are prepared to spend billions of our money on benefits.
This ploy is sure to fail, as the lump grows bigger and thepool of money smaller.Add to this the demands being put on the Health service, the retirement pension problem related to people living longer,ect,ect, ect,and its obvious we are on a down ward spiral,to which our capitalist system has no answer.
Whats coming next?    Tune in 2013 to find out.....Ake
