Topic In your view what is a difference between a boy and a man?

A man takes care of his responsibilities. A boy takes care of only his own desires.
A man raises his children. A boy knocks you up and putzes around afterward.
A man knows how people should treat one another and a good man acts accordingly. A boy only cares about how he is treated.
There's more, but I figured those would about cover it.

A very simplistic statement.
Certainly people receiving benefits shouldn't receive special treatment without there being a good reason. This applies to people on welfare as much as it does big business and there is a sense of entitlement at both ends of the spectrum. Personally I have more understanding for those that are doing it tough than at the other end.
Capitalism only works as it can easily subsume other political ideologies within it. When Marx and Engels wrote the communist manifesto capitalism was nothing like it is now and they'd be very surprised with how it has evolved. At their time only the rich males could vote, there was no welfare unless via charities, no minimum wage, no universal education or health care (something that the US still seems to have problems with). In short, capitalism only works when it isn't purely capitalism anymore. But the mantra of the ideologues overrides that realisation. We would do well to remember that the benefits of competition are in that they keep any negatives of cooperation in check (collusion, corruption) as well as providing some motivating factors, though it's by no means the best way of creating that motivation which can also be done socially. When corporations get so large that the benefits of competition are watered down and they have enough influence in markets and governments to further override it capitalism no longer workers very well.
Note: Competition and cooperation are antonyms. They cannot operate on the same factor at the same time. Vastly more cooperation occurs in society than competition. That's why we call it a society.
Yes! Somebody else who reads! Thank you, Mike!
Very well said!

A Voltaire put it, "In other countries, you get a choice between 12 different political parties. Here (USA), you have to choose between two idiots."
My politics are "live and let live," "work together," "mind your own d@mn business" and "we all share this one little planet. Let's not screw it up any faster."
