The title is “The Bigger the Government, the Smaller the Citizen”.
Here are five reasons why bigger government makes less impressive people.
1. People who are able to take care of themselves and do so are generally better than people who are able to take care of themselves but rely on others.
[…]2. The more people come to rely on government, the more they develop a sense of entitlement — an attitude characterized by the belief that one is owed (whatever the state provides and more).
[…]3. People develop disdain for work.
[…]4. People become preoccupied with vacation time.
[…]5. People are rendered more selfish.
What does it say about us, that were are willing to give up our own freedom in order to live off our neighbor’s hard work?
