“People are shocked at my conservative views. But left-wing politics equals welfare politics.“
Itâ€™s an interesting and I assume widely held rightwing belief that leftist politics will always equate to state dependency. A question I want to ask is how true is it? Does â€˜leftwingâ€™ (letâ€™s pretend for a moment the right/left dichotomy is still relevant) politics equal welfare politics?
Is the solidarity and dare I say collectivist tendencies of the left always doomed to keep people poor and a slave to the state? Or is this a convenient myth from a political ideology that likes to ignore the corporate welfare state dependency of the private sector?
