11/3 Class Reflection

The class discussion on friday was very interesting. I enjoyed everyone's personal interpretation of wealth and what makes one wealthy. I don't remember who mentioned that the government should supply the means for everyone to obtain the basic necessities but I agree. The government should have to hand-feed its population becaus e that would end up being its only focus instead of it being an additional focus. People should be able to provide for themselves. This is also why I don't believe in a long-term welfare system. I believe that there should be a system in palce to assist those who have fallen on hard times but it shouldn't be a constant support system. People who use it as such are lazy and don't deserve to be hand-fed. I believe that people should earn their living through work and every once in a while, there will be hard times and then it would be appropriate to use the welfare system. It is a means of getting back on your feet, not a means of sustaining yourself for a long amount of time. In saying that, it should be the job of the government to provide the essential tools for everyone to get what they need.
