3. This is an awesome rant, and you're 100% correct!

It’s crazy how conditioned Americans are to couch their arguments about how to help poor people always in terms of “we can’t help them enough that they’ll be tempted to be lazy”—even in my own life, I find myself falling into this trap. But it’s the inherent human dignity of people that demands that they have enough to live WITH dignity.
