“Hipsters on Food Stamps”

16 03 2010

Part of the problem is that we’ve managed to irrationally compartmentalize certain aspects of government social welfare (which pretty much all Americans take advantage of, in one form or another) into a “Bad/Lazy/Fraudulent” category.  There’s no reason, that is, that food stamps ought to be considered any worse or more shameful than, say, your government-subsidized, employer-provided healthcare.

Another part of the problem is that our society is full of self-righteous assholes for whom diminishing the plight of the poor and hungry is a kind of sport.
