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.
