Pathological Altruism

For 50 years, government wealth redistribution has proven itself to not work at all. It is quite simply insane to keep doing it.

Some people think that if you are FOR helping other people you MUST be FOR government programs that FORCE a redistribution of wealth.

They also think that if you are AGAINST government programs to redistribute wealth you are AGAINST helping others.

This is sheer lunacy.

What government program ever helped the majority of its participants out of poverty? Not one. After 50 years of government anti-poverty programs, not one of them has worked. Not one. Poverty is at an all-time high after spending TRILLIONS of dollars fighting poverty.

The only logical thing to conclude is that government anti-poverty programs DON'T WORK AND THEY NEVER WILL!

The definition of insanity is to keep doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result.

There are lots of people who are FOR helping others and are AGAINST government programs because anyone with half a brain can see that they DON'T WORK.

Being FOR government programs that can't possibly work is not virtuous or charitable. It's quite simply a dysfunctional and frankly pathological form of altruism that is doomed to destroy both the helpers and the helped.

Quite simply, it is insane.

Isn't it time we stopped looking for the government to do something it can't possibly succeed at and try something else?
