Hunger and want is a failure in the economy. Welfare and charity are just stop-gap measures to keep the rich from being eaten rather than a measure of concern for the poor. In America we require that dignity be forfeited when someone seeks help from the government. It's a humiliating process meant to discourage people. Charity is almost always an ineffectual gesture by well meaning people that does very little actual good.
Welfare is a measure for Democrats to point to and puff up their false 'we care for you' propaganda that, in the past, has always guaranteed votes while keeping that segment of the population on the dole. It's a form of slavery. Charity is one human being helping another and often the ones helping the less fortunate are the so-called 'rich.' Charity gives temporarily down trodden folks and hand up until they can get back on their feet. It is nothing like Welfare which is set up to KEEP folks on the 'Plantation.'

You're poor? Well, it must because you have bad morals...
Really?

To live in poverty isn't immoral.

To demand someone (or everyone) else to raise you out of your poverty is.
How is it not immoral then to expect taxpayers to bail you out of your bad business decisions?
It's exceptionally immoral.

Just as bailing out the individual rewards bad life decisions, bailing out a company rewards bad business decisions.
Not a reward if the business is restructured, which should be mandatory if declaring bankruptcy or a government bailout.

In this story the tory minister is praising the efforts of foodbanks in helping folk to not starve.

But we pay taxes to live in a society where people are not going to starve. People should not be at the mercy of charity to put some food on the table.

Everybody pays taxes so they have a right to expect help when they go through bad times. Welfare has a dignity that charity has not got. It is time to move on from Victorian era social policy.

Let me get this straight...

You admit that the government can fail those in need, as the politicians and bureaucrats in charge live high on the hog off the taxes of others like Victorian lords and ladies, then in turn criticize charities for taking away the dignity of those in need due to that failure when said charity is given.

Does that about sum it up?

The Government never was or never will be a charitable organization.
Oh, darn. Better inform the military!
Oddball:
National defense is a charity?
Let's see.. the military
  • Terrible at generating private income √
  • Pitiful money management history √
  • Unable to survive apart from the govt √
  • Suckles purely off the govt teat √
Yep, sounds like govt acts as a charity, the military a prototypical "charity case."
If it makes you feel better, add the police, prisons, fire departments, ambulance companies, libraries,..
Then again, the govt is us, so feel responsible for employing millions..
Then again, we don't need no corporate "persons" permanently attached to our sore teats..
