                • Welfare dependency: who benefits?


                  from worldwrite Added 70 0 0

                  The welfare state was once celebrated as a keystone of post-war Britain, but while the NHS and state education are still widely valued, state benefits are now accused of fostering a dependency culture which traps people. With cuts in public spending looming as the recession bites, and yet more people likely to need state support, should the focus be on cash for those who need it, or more intensive intervention to get people working? At this Battle of Ideas festival panel debate, speakers include: social policy writer Dave Clements; journalist Rowenna Davis; director of think tank Reform, Andrew Haldenby; and Policy and Membership director at DrugScope, Dr Marcus Roberts.

                      from joe schmoe Added 73 0 0

                      The idea that a system for buying and selling goods is sufficient for monitoring, regulating, and disciplining human behavior is preposterous. The public was unaware of unethical lending practices until the housing bubble popped and people started losing their homes. Of course, by then it was too late. It's only logical to fix a problem when it's small, than to let it get out of hand and expect it to fix itself. While the free market has proven to be the most efficient system for enabling commerce, it is certainly not a cure-all for the human condition. Conclusion: I believe the Tea Party movement has potential. There are a lot of people who feel that they are being used by the government. They feel taken advantage of, and rightly so. Yet the problem I identified was the direct lack of leadership or direction. With no definitive goal, the movement becomes a locus for people who are upset with a variety of societal issues. This detracts from both the legitimacy and potential of the movement. It also allows for subtle manipulation by those in positions of political gain, i.e. Republicans. Solution: 1) Legitimize the movement by becoming an official political party with a clear idealogical foundation and goal. 2) Separate from any participants who aren't there to protest over-spending and government control. Treat them as you treated the counter-protestors. E.g. People who: -Don't believe Obama is a citizen -Don't believe in global warming -Think Obama is the Anti-Christ -Think 9/11 is a conspiracy 3) Don't divide people by singling out only Obama and the Democrats (Bush put us far deeper in debt than Obama has). Thank you for watching.
