The main problem is that we aren't feeding the poor.

The main problem is that we aren't feeding the poor. We have abdicated this task to the government. There are many problems with this, but the primary problem is that the entity taking on the dependency garners actual political authority. They not only garner the political authority of the poor, but they also are able to use the dependency of the poor to extort the middle class into obedience by threatening the stability of the ghettos that placate the dependent populations and keep them out of middle class neighborhoods.

The state cannot be undermined by means of violent action, because to do so would only be to replace it with itself. However we can undermine the state if we develop systems of social welfare that undermine their ability to garner the dependency of the poor, while at the same time fracturing the dependency that results from those charitable transactions.
