  1. I think it fits in well with the notion of the socialist elitist. Some of the people who are proposing welfare are not in need of it. They simply believe that they are ‘providing for the common good’ or some such noble cause. Sadly, what these people lack, is a firm grasp of history and the human wreckage socialism so often leaves in it’s wake.
