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
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.

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.
