29. Don't people understand
We need welfare programs, if for no other reason than because when a large number of people become truly destitute, and can hardly eat, they tend to get pissed off and start revolting. I mean, it'd be nice if they could realize that not letting people starve is the moral thing to do, but there are real, pragmatic reasons to provide these services as well.
