Liam Byrne is right – we need 'radical reform' of the initiative-zapping, soul-destroying welfare state – Telegraph Blogs

When people come to be more reliant on the state than they are on each other, community bonds fray and social solidarity falls into disrepair.
This is something that I have been saying for a while. The welfare state claims so many lives through the public dole that effects families and communities that become dependent upon a faceless leviathan instead of their neighbors and churches et al. It creates a more coarse community life. Centralized economic decision making in Washington has a similar effect upon markets as incentives change.

I am afraid that none would agree with me, unfortunately for all of us.
