    If eugenics applied to the working classes was a progessivist ideal of leaders like Woodrow Wilson, what is its counterpart in contemporary leaders like Malcolm Turnbull?

    Salutary reminder to look behind the “national interest” arguments of the proponents of Big Government whether of the left or right. Government as the distributor of spoils and patronage is an evil.

    Unskilled, mentally challenged, the disabled.

    God forbid they’d gain some personal respect, a feeling of usefulness and higher self esteem by producing and earning their own money, even through menial, low paid jobs. Best keep them on the taxpayers teat and remain victims.

    When did it happen that the minimum wage has now become a career opportunity instead of a stepping stone in and out of the workforce for the capable among us?

    This blog would be greatly improved with more deletings and bannings.

    Government as the distributor of spoils and patronage is an evil.

    Damn straight.

    Labor Party’s White Australia was the same idea, wasn’t it?

    Along with never-mentioned USA’s
    Chinese Exclusion Act.

    The average young ‘un thinks these were “right wing” policies, if they’ve even heard of them at all.
