Again, I would have done the same thing, and again I would reprimand myself.
What message are we sending irresponsible people, and their masters, if we keep bailing them out?
I know nothing of his personal life, and don't care to. I'm not even fixated on this individual case. However, I do worry about the message "we"
are sending our kids, as opposed to the message I got from my parents.
This has become a snowball effect, more and more people spending more then they can ever possibly payback, small kids running around with enough stuff
to feed an entire African village, and all that stuff mostly not played for...and a Government, controlled by some elites, taking political advantage
of the situation in order to further enslave society and bring about their proclaimed Global Corporatism.
Is this the message we want to teach future generations? Don't worry about your duties and responsibilities, spend as much as you wish, have a car
you can't afford, have pets you can't feed, buy a house you will never be able to pay...somebody, somewhere will pick-up your tab. And this is how
you create a population of Slaves:
a) A majority too indebted and dependent on "Big Government" to ever question it, let alone it's masters!
b) A hard-working, over-taxed population, that is being robbed in order to pay for the irresponsibility of others.
This situation totally destroying the middle-class, and any political power it could have. Since the middle-class is the basis of any sane
I taught my children the message of fiscal, personal, and family responsibility. A message that states their rights, but also their duties: to
themselves, "Be All That You Can Be", and to their direct dependants.
Again, I commend what you did. The circumstances are, like you said, unknown to me. I just think that this sort of action on a wider scale has too
many perverse effects on society! But again, who wouldn't help an animal in need, or a starving child? Theory is almost always easier then
PS» ~68% of Americans are now, directly, or indirectly (too bigs to fail), dependent on the Government for their sustenance. In the EU the numbers
are even higher. What hope of true Change can be expected from such an enslaved population? Western Societies have been Politically Engineered (for
decades)...America was the last hope for True Personal Freedom - that hope is now dead!
