Greed is great. Greed is morally and practically good and great. Greed fundamentally benefits and uplifts both the Holy Individual and His society.

Muslims are forever being "radicalized." This happens worldwide -- in the East, in the West, and everywhere else. It includes those who are the most normal and innocent.

Welfare Statism

Kyrel Zantonavitch's picture
Submitted by Kyrel Zantonavitch on Fri, 2015-09-25 21:04

The basic idea behind the Welfare State is people are far too stupid and evil to live their lives decently or properly on their own, so they need to be forced to do so by a wise and virtuous semi-tyrannical government. Most or all people, it seems, are naturally or inherently incompetent to live their lives rightly.

The ideology of socialism can warp your mind. It makes you capable of virtually any atrocity. And, to a large extent, so too the worldwide and universal ideology of welfare statism. Here are some quotes from socialist Mao Tse-tung, who killed about 60 million:

People are good. At least in general and for the most part. People are socially virtuous. Given a chance, most people most times won't beat or rob you, nor lie to or betray you.
