Welfare State

Gus Van Horn has a nice post looking at the effects and psychology of the welfare state as evidenced in New Orleans and Houston since hurricane Katrina. I particularly like a formulation from the beginning of his post:
A republic whose citizenry does not regard the protection of its inalienable rights as the purpose of its government is doomed to get a government that violates those rights in some way.
