The trouble with giving most everyone government assistance . . . .

is that most everyone will therefore never support any necessary economies.

Youths hurled rocks and fire bombs at riot police in central Athens on Tuesday, June 28, 2011 as a general strike against new austerity measures brought the country to a standstill.

Lawmakers were embarking on their second day of debate on austerity measures that must be passed in votes on Wednesday and Thursday if Greece’s international creditors are to release another batch of bailout funds to see it beyond the middle of next month.

When the majority of citizens are "clients" of government programs, the majority has no incentive to support economic responsibly until after economic disaster strikes.
