Put Contraceptives to Better Use, Paula

PRESS RELEASE

Put Contraceptives to Better Use, Paula

“As pathetic as it is, Paula Bennett’s attempts to encourage mothers on the DPB to use contraceptives is a classic example of the state trying to fix a problem that was caused squarely by the state,” said Peter Osborne, Libertarianz spokesman for Social Welfare today.

“It is the law of unintended consequences. Although how those who introduced the welfare state could not foresee the problems that their meddling would cause is beyond me.”

Osborne continues, “State controlled welfarism is a cancer. The wide spread destruction it has caused far outweigh any benefits. If their goal was to dissolve a desire to be productive and set individual goals then they have succeeded. If their goal was to ensure that children were to be born under an inescapable sense of worthlessness generations on, then they have succeeded. If their goal was to assist in the indebtedness of our nation, they have succeeded. It is truly the worst and most destructive social experiment to be foisted on all of us.”

Mr Osborne concludes, “The realm of helping those in need is not the legitimate place of government. It is mine and yours as individuals under our own steam and by our own choice. Only in this way can those who receive be understanding of the effort people make on their behalf and the expectation on the receiver to strive for self autonomy. The welfare state must go. Ms Bennett would do well to hand her condoms out to her fellow, meddlesome politicians so we would no longer have to endure the next generation of their ilk.”
