It Seems Wrong To Hoard The Life Boats And Then Tell People To Sink or Swim


I was driving around Houston a few months back and came upon this collection of life boats.

These boats reminded me of conservative social policy in our nation where the resources of access to education and good jobs are increasingly hoarded outside the reach of people who could make good use of them, while at the same time we are told to sink or swim.

It is wrong to hoard all the resources and all the ways out of trouble in a place that is blocked off from hard-working people who need help. It is wrong to hoard all the resources and then say that people who do not prosper are failures and freeloaders.
