You probably don’t want to admit that if you work for government and like your paycheck, but it doesn’t change reality.
A job that comes with a government paycheck- financed with money stolen from others (or counterfeited by the Federal Reserve, as the case may be)- is NOT an honest job. No matter how good it makes you feel. No matter if you believe you are doing a good thing. You aren’t.
A government paycheck is welfare, but of a type that is much more harmful than simply getting money for nothing- a government paycheck is welfare given as a reward for harming people. It doesn’t matter that the recipient claims they “worked for it”.
I feel sorry for those who go into denial over this and try to make excuses or point fingers elsewhere.
Why would I say that it isn’t right to have a government job, knowing it will hurt feelings of people I know personally and care about? Because I do care about them and don’t want to see them compromising themselves. I don’t really care if strangers I don’t like choose archation over cooperation. People I don’t like probably suck anyway, so what else would I expect from them? But people I care about? I don’t want them lowering themselves to that level. As tempting as it may be, and as rewarding as the paycheck is, it isn’t right and they need to know.
