The British government – that’s who! I mean come on – even a child would be able to predict that if you give someone 16K cash that is not working and perfectly able-bodied, they will be tempted to a) spend it on luxuries – in this case gambling, and not what it was intended for – eating, heating, bills etc, and b) they would have zero incentive to work, and it will exacerbate the problem not solve it!
Use food vouchers, heating vouchers – anything – but not cash!
The Bible says; if a man won’t work – he won’t eat. So did God forget to add; unless you live in the UK? Of course not – this is one of life’s principles and there will always be people that sponge or as I like to call it – steal. Often it is out of ignorance of what they are actually indirectly doing, so let’s not be too hard. But you get my point.
Come to Britain – the government really will give you cash for nothing!
But before you think the governments and people in politics are actually stupid and don’t know what they are doing – think again. As my previous article they know as they learned from their father (you know who I mean) – that a dependent person is an easily manipulated person and more importantly – if you hand them cash they haven’t earned they will love you and vote for you!
Ahh now we see what’s really happening coming into light. The same old socialist trick to make and keep everyone dependent on the state to keep them and their votes in the palm of your hand under the guise of fairness.
And there are many younger idealists that don’t know their Bibles, or that God is neither socialist or capitalist but hard-work-for-your-own-money-and-be-responsible-ist, actually do believe it’s fair to take money from one person and give it to another (when The Bible clearly tells us it is WE personally who should be giving to the needy – not letting the any government take it out of our pockets) but the ones higher up?.. I doubt they really think it’s fair. They are much brighter than that and understand how you can manipulate masses easily by controlling what goes in (and out) of their pockets and ultimately mouths. For them it’s about gravy trains, ego and prestige like most politicians.
Fairness is working for your money and not taking it – or worse – have someone else take it from someone who has been enterprising and worked hard for it and give it to you. Think about it; if I walked up to a well-off person and took half their earnings and then started throwing in the street for anyone and everyone to pick up – I would be banged up for theft. But if a government or despot wants to do it – fine!.. it’s all in the name of fairness. No – it’s in the name of; ‘I can’t be bothered to work – so I’d rather have your money thanks very much’!
And don’t bring the greedy corporates into this and tar everyone – even the hard-working local business owners and people who want to work hard and give others the chance of doing the same with the same ‘capitalist’ brush! Yes many of the conglomerates do need to be smacked down as many of them are downright crooked with their pills and petrol. But many are ethically run so we need to differentiate.
People and corporations often become corrupt – and many start with good intentions
There are people that work and people that don’t Some of these people that work become corrupt and some don’t. Some of the corporations that become rich trough innovation and hard work become corrupt and some don’t. Besides, The term ‘capitalist’ didn’t exist in Jesus day – this is a new word that used to describe the idea of working hard and being paid fairly for it and being able to employ others so they could share in your profits too – but has now been extended to cover all people who profit from their labour – bent or not, and used as a tool to manipulate vulnerable people into thinking socialism is good!
Of course whist the anti-‘capitalist’ people lower down the food chain have bought into the lie and are probably not doing too well (and who might be better of working than flag waving), be assured those at the top selling them this nonsense will be rolling in it. If you are in any doubt read Animal Farm – where some are more ‘equal’ than others.
Now before anyone thinks I am being unfair – first of course there are exceptions – people who cannot work, the old, ill mothers or fathers really struggling etc. For these people there always needs to be a minimum safety net – this is what tithing was originally for – not lining the pockets of churches and pastors and preachers!
I’d be lucky if I earnt 16K and I do all kinds of work
As for me, I don’t just sit here writing articles – I have a part time job, run a totally free singles service to help Christians – a group largely overlooked by the churches I feel (that often nearly kills me and most of the advertising earnings of which I stupidly ended up giving to ‘developers’), do lots of local odd jobs, drive people about to earn a few pence. Through working, what I call ‘extreme saving‘ (being exceedingly tight with myself – ie no holidays, living in places I didn’t want to live but realising even Croydon and Stoneliegh are paradises compared to parts of the world, and buying cheap unbranded food) I have managed to own a property on my tiny wage! (See my article on how to be better off without doing a thing)
But I cannot forget my grandmother’s sister, who’s mother died in her early teens who had to bring up her brothers and sisters on her own – with no hand-outs. Just how did these people do it? I have no idea but she did – she worked – they worked and they survived to tell me the tale.
