Are people addicted to the struggle?
Are people constantly addicted to the struggle and the 'I can't' instead of the 'I can', or is it they're too entitled to change, and expect the world to change around them?
Or, is it just as simple as 'i don't know how'...?
Interesting topic to be had, as the theory is sucking the government dry of funds, but also leading to mass problems in society today.
I can be known as a capitalist, I don't believe in welfare at all, whatsoever, except in extreme times of need - and that doesn't mean when you've lost your job, and live above your means, the government should bail you out.
For years now, we've proven the only difference between person A and B, is opportunity, and action, and well, attitude, and we resolve all of that.
Money isn't an excuse with us, we also trade in pay-it-forward currencies, which also disciplines you in making the effort to earn reward - a double benefit.
Everyday I see people reach out "I'm on the DHS waitlist, I'm struggling, the government is doing nothing to help me, they're useless" - and the old, blunt me used to say, stop being lazy, now the evolved me realised, maybe some people just get stuck, and don't know how to improve.
It's not upto the government to save you - it's upto you.
This theory happens with the rich as well, living within your means, and being accountable for your own success. I know plenty of people who say they've got no money, yet throw funds out the window on the BMW, hair and makeup, uber eats, a cruise etc - you're not kidding anyone.
But society does need to change. Stop relying on the government to fix things, we need to learn from our international friends that have a culture of 'it takes a village', and these homeless woes will end, the crime and DV cycle will end, and it all comes down to getting involved.
Dear Single Mum,
With three kids, recently separated, needs government housing. Ugh, no you don't.
We're not going to judge you for three kids, even though we have one child, work hard, have never been on Centrelink, and don't see how people can have many children unless they can afford it themselves - unless of course they expect the government to bail them out.
No honey you don't need the government, you are not a charity. You need proactive support, and a job, to get off the struggle cycle, and into loving your life. We'll help you if you want to end the struggle, but we don't believe in welfare as a luxury.
That mum, will be supported by our investment, and services, because for every one business or paying individual, we help one individual. But they don't get it for free, and we set an expiry date on Centrelink. They pay for our services, we turn their life around. And that includes living within their means.
You can call me a capitalist, but I also realise that some people want to change, and that's why our service is accessible to all. I don't have an issue with those wanting to change. I have an issue with the entitled members of society doing nothing to contribute positively to our community.
