The social needs of society are met without government. Charity exists without government.
Charity exists when you love your neighbors as much as you love yourself. Do not covet your neighbor’s wealth. Government programs are paid by the force, fear and violence to extract funds from your neighbor. Learn how to spot the difference between love and violence.
You have no right to live more comfortably at the expense of your neighbor.
