The City That Forgot to Care For Itself
New Orleans is called the ‘City that Care Forgot.’ Evidently the city has been partying too much to take care of its own needs.
Read the astoundingly self-pitying and self-centered demands of the city’s mayor.
In the sordid tradition of welfare-state socialism, he sees nothing unusual about expecting citizens from the rest of the country to pay for rebuilding the city, while its corrupt administration and ineffective police force carry on in the same old way.
As noted in Love of Life vs Self-Love and in many other posting on this website:
When people look to the political state for salvation, there are no moral consequences from imprudent or immoral conduct.
