Charity and Slavery

In violent times
You shouldn't have to sell your soul
--Tears for Fears

Charity is voluntarily giving production (either self-produced or obtained thru trade) to help others. Charity is not a one-sided trade. The giver of production gains psychic or perhaps spiritual income from the transaction.

Slavery is involuntarily surrendering production to others on a routine basis. Slavery is a one-sided trade. Production is confiscated from producers who get nothing in return--although slavemasters may rationalize otherwise.

Welfare programs funded by tax dollars are not forms of charity. They are institutions of slavery. Taxpayers regularly surrender production at the point of a gun.

They are slaves of welfare program beneficiaries and their proponents.

I am not, nor ever have been, in favor of bringing about in any way the social and political equality of the white and black races; that I am not, nor ever have been, in favor of making voters or jurors of negroes, nor of qualifying them to hold office, nor to intermarry with white people; and I will say, in addition to this, that there is a physical difference between the white and black races which I believe will forever forbid the two races living together on terms of social and political equality. And in as much as they cannot so live, while they do remain together there must be the position of superior and inferior, and I as much as any other man am in favor of having the superior position assigned to the white race.
~Abraham Lincoln, September 18, 1858
