“The entitlement mindset atrophies self-reliance, adaptability and flexibility, all key survival traits. If the government will “fix” our health, we no longer feel responsible in the way one does if there is limited government/employer-provided healthcare. If we expect our Social Security retirement regardless of what other conditions may be affecting the global economy or our nation, then we stop being responsible for managing our financial affairs in the same way as one does when there is no “guaranteed” retirement entitlement.” ~ Charles Hugh Smith
From the article: Life is freely given, but its preservation must be earned everyday. Our politicians live in a world where their hubris is matched only by their want of control. The entitlement ideology is taking hold, effectively bankrupting America both fiscally and morally. Government would have you believe otherwise, yet the ideology underpinning their policies and programs will not change the nature of reality.
Americans are living in a fantasy land, where shelter, food, clothing, even raising our progeny is handed over to the state.
We cannot get our rights back until we take responsibility for our lives and the lives of our children. If you will not take responsibility for yourself and your children then our nation will be regulated to the dust bin of history.
Resist tyranny, obey God, take up your responsibilities.
Resist apathy. Resist lethargy. Be responsible.
