Compassion Abuse is Weakening America

by | Nov 2, 2021 |

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Much of the moral rot of today’s culture in America can be traced to one primary cause: compassion abuse. “What?” you cry, “Decent people are compassionate! Decent people want to help the less fortunate. It is the Christian thing to do. What are you? Some kind of cruel monster who wants to let people suffer?” We see this in the news on a daily basis:

  • Does someone lack food? Be compassionate! Demand government gives it to them.
  • Does someone lack shelter? Be compassionate! Demand government gives it to them.
  • Does someone lack a cell phone? Be compassionate! Demand government gives it to them.
  • Does someone lack ____________ (fill in the blank). Be compassionate! Demand government gives it to them. 

Compassion Abuse: Anything You Want, Government Will Give You

You get the pattern. For anything anyone lacks (or wants), the government will provide it, in the name of compassion. What kind and virtuous people, these government socialist politicians and bureaucrats. They can brag about how virtuous they are with other people’s money: yours! And in the process, they create a constituency of people dependent on them for food, shelter, cell phones, health care, etc. 

Christian Compassion Corrupted by Progressives

A significant reason for the moral rot is the indiscriminate abuse of compassion. We Americans have had the Christian virtue of compassion hi-jacked by Progressive Socialists for their own agenda: producing dependent drones who unthinkingly obey the “sugar daddy” socialist state which showers goodies on them indiscriminately in the name of compassion. Christians sometimes forget that St. Paul said “… if any would not work, neither should he eat.” 2 Thessalonians 3:10

We are in the middle stages of this process of building dependency on government through the policy of compassion abuse. Just like a drug pusher, the government hands out “free” samples of goodies initially to get you hooked. Free housing. Free food. Free childcare. And during Covid/Wuhan, free pay to stay home. Once you are hooked on drugs, you suffer severe and violent withdrawal behaviors when you are cut off from the drugs. We see these same severe and damaging “withdrawal symptoms” whenever taxpayers want to cut back or end any of the government freebie programs: riots, cancel and fire the person suggesting cuts, threats, social shaming, and shunning.

Something for nothing = Compassion Abuse

Here is how compassion is abused in America, and the results (learned from my mentor CRG):

  • When you give somebody something for nothing, you make them good for nothing.
  • When you give somebody something for nothing, they are NOT grateful.
  • When they figure out that you have made them good for nothing, they will stomp you. 

We see this last point in the news – the rage, resentment, and violence of “victim” groups even after they have been given special rights, privileges, and free stuff. 

If They Are a “Victim,” We Can’t Expect Them to Help Themselves

The other weasel word used by progressive socialists is “victim.” Once we label someone or some group a victim, it is a magic word that confers special rights and privileges on them:

  • We can’t expect them to do anything for themselves. After all, they are victims.
  • Victims have the unlimited moral right to demand anything and everything for free. After all, they are victims.
  • Victims can’t be held accountable for how wisely they use the goodies and privileges we give them. Like drug addicts who overdose, they are “not responsible.” We can’t “blame the victim!”

The result of 55+ years of indiscriminate welfare state benefits is a permanent welfare class. Victims don’t work. Victims live in Section Eight Housing. Victims get Food Stamps (SNAP cards). Victims consume without producing. Now the Biden Administration is enlarging the welfare/victim class by paying people to stay home with generous “Covid Unemployment Pay.” Even after the larger unemployment pay ends, a large percentage of workers are staying home. They’ve discovered the cornucopia of welfare benefits. It’s more comfortable to stay home and play video games instead of going to work.

Even a Liberal Realizes Bad Outcomes of Victim Ideology

Virginia Allen interviewed author Michael Shellenberger on her Daily Signal podcast about his new book “San Fransicko: Why Progressives Ruin Cities.” Shellenberger is a liberal activist who finally saw the bad consequences of the “victim” ideology:

What I get at the bottom line here is that this is a victim ideology, meaning that there’s an ideology here. And it’s just as dumb as it sounds, unfortunately. It’s the idea that you can classify certain groups of people as victims. 

The racist aspect of this is that progressives classify all African Americans, all people of color, except Asians, as victims. But they also classify people with mental illness as victims. They classify children. They classify women, gays, and lesbians, people suffering addiction are all classified as victims. That’s the first thing they do.

The second thing they do, which is as insidious, is that they believe that, to victims, everything should be given and nothing demanded. This is terrible for raising kids. It’s also terrible for dealing with people suffering from addiction and mental illness. 

Give Everything, Expect Nothing in Return

Shellenberger identifies this as the root cause of homeless people in cities: give them everything, expect nothing in return. As I stated above, when you give somebody something for nothing, you make them good for nothing. The psychologist Martin Seligman identified one outcome: Learned Helplessness. When everything is given to you, you don’t need to do anything. You are like a helpless baby waiting for someone else to feed you, someone else to change your diaper. You don’t do anything because you don’t need to do anything. Eat, poop and sleep. Repeat. That is the life of babies and homeless people. Both are taken care of by others.

Compassion Abuse: The Drug of Dictators

Indiscriminate compassion is not kindness. It is compassion abuse. Like drug abuse, it leads to the sickness of mind and body. Too much of anything can be fatal. We see the results of compassion abuse everywhere in our cities: homeless people living on sidewalks. Dictatorial government bureaucrats love it because it gives them another “problem” that enlarges their power over ever-increasing numbers of people.

We now see another variation: “Covid compassion abuse” – restaurants and companies closed because they cannot get workers. Empty shelves because transportation companies cannot get truck drivers to deliver goods and groceries. Factories and food processing plants reduce output because they cannot get enough workers. In the name of compassion, the Federal Government is paying workers to stay home. They can still buy groceries and heat their apartments, and turn on their televisions.

What happens when the worker shortage gets so bad that there are no groceries to buy, no natural gas to heat homes, and no electricity for televisions?

The Solution? Expect Something for Something

When you give something, expect something in return. Some states had success with “workfare.” To get welfare benefits, you had to do work. For starters:

  • Replace welfare with workfare. To get welfare benefits, you have to work.
  • Replace unemployment benefits with workfare. To get benefits, you have to work.
  • Any benefit program whatsoever requires work to get it. 

“In all labor, there is profit: but the talk of the lips tendeth only to penury.” Proverbs 14:23

Michael McCarthy

Michael McCarthy is a life-long student of liberty, limited government, and free-market economics. As a young man, he taught and crewed at the Flint School aboard the 156’ two-masted schooner Te Vega sailing in Europe. Atlas Shrugged was required reading.

In 2010 he saw the acceleration of big government control in politics, business, and culture. Hoping to reach the next generation through fiction entertainment, he wrote the prophetic novel The Noah Option. Powerful politicians target brilliant black scientist Dr. Grace Washington. Her story continues in the sequel, The Rainbow Option, when powerful elites unleash a deadly virus on unsuspecting Americans, and Grace must develop a cure. In The Timshel Option, ISIS invades and creates The New England Caliphate, making women second-class citizens. One teenage girl fights back.

"The things I predicted in my novels came true in the nightly news. Our country is in trouble. Like Abraham Lincoln, I hope for a new birth of freedom,” says McCarthy.

Our Conscious Bias on Kyle Rittenhouse, Ghislaine Maxwell & Ahmaud Arbery

Too many, make their decisions purely because they fall on either the right or left side of the political aisle. Truth is arbitrary in these situations because the most important thing for them is getting a “win” for their team. This is why so much division exists within the United States. Gaining political power for factions of our government is more important than…

Perhaps one day people will finally wake up to the truth…

The Criminal Justice System Goes Woke

The old “three strikes and you’re out” meaning, three felony convictions, and you face jail for life for thugs unsuitable for mixing with decent society, filled up the jails as was intended. Now, under the Progressive government process, they’re simply back out on the streets, often not even going through the trial and conviction process before they commit other heinous crimes…

In this issue of the report, we give the first modeling analysis of Omicron and its anticipated transmissibility based on the S1 receptor binding domain mutations.  Fortunately, these preliminary analyses suggest lower transmissibility than for Delta. This means if Omicron supplants Delta as the predominant strain, we may see the first turn for the crisis where cases could wind down…

Since the obtuse pandering ideologies of Covid-19 redefined the economics of California with their narratives of mandates and lockdowns, Walt Disney World Executives were gut-punched in their pocketbooks.

The Hazards of Electric Cars Are Many, the Number of Cars Will be Few

The electric automobile will never exceed 10% of the cars on the road. All automobile manufacturers invest in their output, and all will be disappointed in their sales. Surely not what President Biden or Governor Newsom of California are planning for. For as long as the present government is in power, they will be pushing the electric car as another means to run our lives…

Anthony Fauci’s Role in the USA of FEAR

Dr. Fauci, the highest-overpaid employee of the US Government, is developing a reputation, like Joe Biden, for being wrong nearly all of the time.

It must be ‘political science’ because…

The Biggest Lie in CRT

The Biggest Lie in CRT

CRT is no more based on truth than is a KKK pamphlet, and really a KKK pamphlet and CRT have a lot in common. Both pretend to provide accurate facts and accurate histories – but both cherry-pick facts to create a pre-arranged narrative. And both narratives are overtly racist. Really, the only difference between CRT adherents and the KKK is the…

FBI’s Informant Program Underhandedly Targets Americans

FBI’s Informant Program Underhandedly Targets Americans

Director Wray’s misleading testimony to Congress in March led Green Beret Jeremy Brown to very publicly release an interview he audiotaped with FBI recruiters in December 2020. In it, they offered him money to become an informant just one month prior to the Capitol event. He refused, turned whistleblower, and began sharing the audiotape on every social media outlet he could. That one decision changed Brown’s life forever…

Truth is, it’s Definitely a Pandemic of the Vaccinated

As data from the most heavily vaccinated countries in the world, such as Israel, Singapore, Iceland, etc., now unequivocally demonstrate, the vaccinated are the most sickened. Data from the British government shows that the infection rate among fully vaccinated people in their 40s was 100% higher than among the unvaccinated. In the Irish counties of Waterford and Carlow, where 99.7% and 98% of all adults are vaccinated, cases are exploding…

Biden Administration Promotes New Land Grab on Farmers

The Biden Administration reverses back to Obama regulations, reversing Trump policy, “to restore federal protections for hundreds of thousands of small streams, wetlands, and other waterways.” This simply creates yet one more obstacle for our great American farmers to feed us healthily and economically. As if our farmers did not have enough problems already with the regular attacks from the left today…
