A Thought on the Redistributon of Income

"One of the reasons some people today feel alienated is that they are alienated from one of the great satisfactions of life--work! Acknowledged is our need to help the poor, but to help in a way that is truly helpful. The more we institutionalize our efforts to help the poor, the less personal these efforts become. The dole desensitizes both the giver and the receiver and it pushes people apart." --Neal A. Maxwell, Wherefore, Ye Must Press Forward, 1977
