The True Face Of Government
Public assistance has its place, but it is a myth to believe that any government or representative of such will ever truly take steps to do anything but expand the bureaucracy for which they toil. It's, quite simply, the business they're in. Grow and hire new people who then depend on government for their livelihood, making it in their best interest to help it grow even further, so that it can then hire even more people to keep it expanding (often through outreach programs that, literally, look for new people to join the ranks of the perpetually needy - people who hadn't even asked for help) and so on and on and on and on forever.
Never contracting. Always expanding with the ultimate goal of making every citizen (and, apparently, non-citizen as well) either an agent of the bureaucracy or one of its many clients. An automaton or a slave.
