Since so many people love to throw Bible verses around when it comes to the welfare of our fellow human beings I thought I’d put this here in order to let such folks know that the Bible can work against them as well. It’d be interesting to see what arguments come up against this since there’s no doubt that some are so comfortable in their moral superiority that they would think that this is being misquoted and misrepresented in a most horrible and oppressive manner.
Take a deep breath, center yourself, and then, for those that think that world is theirs to save, carefully work your head out of your backside.
There are of course those in this world that are unable to work due to one infirmity or another, and yet even they will attempt to find a way to survive if pressed to do so. It might not be possible, but they would certainly try. And that is what differentiates them from those that believe that they are somehow entitled to survive while not doing the work to make this possible. Every last living organism on this earth works in some manner to survive, to make a difference in their world if not others, and the understanding is that if you don’t work, you don’t eat. If you don’t eat, you starve. But how is that anyone else’s problem?
Yes, people might say that it’s our responsibility to our species to make certain that every last person is taken care of. Again, those with obvious disabilities that can’t do the work do need help now and again, and yet a lot of those still seem to care enough to at least try, to strive for something that is born from their effort. Those that cry, piss, moan, and state that they are unwilling to work, you can go scratch out a living like the rest of us.
You aren’t entitled to something you didn’t earn. Boom.
