Thread Name: BS: Benefits/Welfare.
Subject: RE: BS: Benefits/Welfare.
Fascinating old debate. Notwithstanding the polarised opinion above which I am sure was designed to be provocative, the original thrust of this thread adds potty to nasty.

Welfare is a mark of civilisation seeing the overall benefits of group altruism. Whether it is a tool of oppression depends on how mentally disturbed you are when you push such tosh in debate. Funny thing paranoia. .

It can be used as a tool but it isn't a tool per se. It is a bit of an insult for those relying onbenefits to say they are indulging in some big brother population control. For most, it is the thing that keeps them alive. High brow debate over sinister ideology is almost as bad as the misguided targeting this government is aiming.   Quiet man indeed. ..
