Wrong again, the exact discussion is the “help” that is offered to the “poor” and how it is the opposite of what they actually need and what will have a positive result.
What I just described is EXACTLY how I turned many clueless young boys and girls into capable adults that can overcome simple issues like a malfunctioning car, screwed up computer, thermostat that won’t light the furnace, refrigerator that won’t cool, washer that won’t spin, dryer that won’t heat and thousands of other “ailments” cheaply and easily.
Buy a man a fish, he eats for a day. Teach him to fish and he eats for life.
I have an 11th grade education and that is being generous considering the grades I got before I dropped out, common sense and tenacity are cheap.
Those who are too lazy to self educate when they lack the means to gain a formal education are too lazy to learn anything useful in a formal environment anyway.
If you cannot afford an alternator for the cost of the part then you cannot afford a car.
Buying a car when you cannot afford one does not fulfill a transportation need, it creates new financial problems. There is your economics lesson.
Finding a new vocation, self educating and scrounging up capital is precisely the type of life challenges that build self esteem and turn the helpless into productive members of society. Everything I know of value I gleaned from this crucible and I would know none of it if I tried to smooth every bump with a government handout that came with no “strings attached”
I would be a Liberal in other words.
Wrong again, there are countless discussion and advice sites that do not hail from a .gov that have fantastic advice and information for those looking to better their lot without taking the property of others by force with a government gun.
