Did you know Obama believes Freedom from want is a basic human right? Hmm.
Strange, isn’t want a motivation for humans to work, strive, educate, try, provide … when a person does not… they stay behind those who do. For that matter, if a person does want and the Federal Government provides or attempts to eliminate a persons “want”, history proves the person wants more from government. Soon they begin demanding it.
Name a successful period of government socialism? Is history a teacher? Greece? Italy? or perhaps the Occupy nut-jobs provide illumination to inherent failures of socialism. They prove the social ills generated by those who want…yet do nothing but protest which ironically demonstrates their willingness to do nothing.
All the while Barry captures his media moments to highlight and stress socio-economic differences.
Let’s say you are a parent. You want to provide toys, gadgets, clothing, comforts and freedoms absent from your childhood. This begins at a young age and you condition him or her to expect these things. One day it dawns on you, you are creating a monster. Then one day the child begins making demands, temper tantrums ensue and your child does not understand why you can no-longer provide for their wants. YIKES!
Question, regardless of socio-economic status… NO ONE stops wanting: Newer, bigger, faster car; larger home; better neighborhood; rural/city; trips or more inclusive trips; change from a copy of Monet’s Garden to owning the actual Monet; Timex no longer suffices you want a Rolex; the examples are infinite.
No society should ever provide for wants … it is not a Human Right.
