“Nothing Moral about Work”

I’d like to think that this is actually a parody–and maybe it is–but I’ve run into entirely too many people for whom it’s an entirely too real attitude.

Nothing moral about work? But apparently there’s something moral about forcing other people to work to provide that food, water, shelter, health care and other things that you want to have without working for it.  After all, those “basic human rights” you’re claiming don’t fall like manna from the skies.  Someone has to work to provide them.  And if you’re not going to work to provide something that they’ll voluntarily exchange for the product of their work, then you’re going to have to force them.

There is a word for that.

I’m going to go with you’re basically an entitled scumbag and you need to be kicked to the curb to make your own living or not (and if not, to starve–in the words of Paul, “If anyone will not work, neither shall he eat”). I’m good either way.  I have absolutely no caring whatsoever for people in smug self-righteousness refusing to work because they have a “right” to have other people provide for them, people like you.

There are people with real difficulties who need help. Them, I’m more than willing to help.

You’re not one of them.

  1. “I’m going to go with you’re basically an entitled scumbag and you need to be kicked to the curb to make your own living or not….” One of your most astute statements among many. People with the philosophy that food/shelter/health care/etc. are a right are in for a rude awakening the day things take a turn for the worse.

    We have a right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. After that everything becomes debatable.
