Once the door was open, once it was settled that the government should help some people at the expense of others, there was no stopping it. If the coercion of government can endow one person with property he hasn’t earned, then everyone will want to use government to get something he wants. So it’s not surprising that, over the past two centuries, more and more people have concluded that THEY deserve government’s help.
