Leave the cancer alone? Radiation and chemo harm innocent cells?

I sympathize with concern for Americans whose reliance on government solutions will bite them when those programs die. But let's not demand the impossible.

The proposal offered here is effectively to wait to eliminate the welfare state until a comparable non-state structure is in place to do its job. That is, before we "flip the switch," we'd need to be supporting both the state system and its developing replacement.

Not very realistic, is it?

The proper focus of concern is to accelerate the demise of state welfare so that fewer people become dependent, and others are less dependent than they would later be. Meanwhile we try to help people reconnect to voluntary communities so they can get at least some help when the Nanny State dries up.
