Do you consider yourself a sovereign human being with all of the rights and responsibilities that go along with this? Many of us are quite well versed in our rights, often from an early age; neglected are the responsibilities we must attend to, in order to preserve our rights.
If we fail to attend to our responsibilities, then our liberties are continually at risk and we are in jeopardy of becoming permanently dependent on the shaky infrastructure of state-funded safety nets.
This dependancy can be true whether we are rich, or poor; it is not just for those of us who are on welfare. There are plenty of systems in place in the developed world to allow rich people to be, pretty much, non productive consumers, if they so choose; the same can be said for many of the poorer people.
The many complex and interleaved layers of society, have left room for a good many non-productive activities; it has, in effect, made non-productivity sustainable. The sustainability of this non-productivity, only lasts as long as the layers of society remain in tact and in relative harmony. When this harmony becomes materially interrupted, chaos is likely to result, with a subsequent loss of liberty for the non-prepared among us.
Deep dependency comes at a great cost, for a variety of reasons. When the supply of goods and services, provided by the welfare/warfare state, becomes interrupted; individuals who have become deeply dependent on the layers of society will likely lose their rights very quickly.
Whereas those who are responsible, productive and well prepared, will better maintain those rights; because they will not need to rely so much on outside help from the state. The more layers of state-funded assistance we build; the more people will tend to become complacent and non-productive; further exacerbating the problems our society faces.
Anyone who has ever visited a Native American reservation can attest that the years of U.S. government payments to these individuals, has by and large, not made their lives any better. It has instead made an entire society of, mostly impoverished individuals, dependent on checks from the government; many of whom have barely adequate living conditions. While it was likely a well meaning act to provide these individuals with assistance, it has merely put off the inevitable day, when they will have to figure out their own way of providing a living for themselves.
I want to share with you a podcast by Jack Spirko of thesurvivalpodcast.com, in which he goes into this topic in great detail. He further explains what I have outlined above, as well as what we can do to ensure our rights are protected, whether or not the government is protecting them for us.
Today we discuss the myth of the “safety net” that is touted by the media. In doing so we will come to understand how deep dependence is among both the extremely affluent and extremely poor segments of society. We will go deeper though and come to understand how the disconnect between rights and responsiblities are the root of the program.
