The political left
Thursday, November 319th, 2007
The political left is mainly composed of do-gooders that do not want to do good themselves.
Imagine someone wanting to do good for the homeless, and instead of doing the obvious and going out there with food/money/coffee/blankets/whatever, they decide to moan about it to the press, politicians, and just about anybody else who is willing to listen (or just happen the hapless victim).
The result is that the tax payers are burdened with doing good for almost anyone. It is a rare person in Denmark that does not receive his share of all the do-goodery.
The really sad part is that the politicians with the courage to say no whenever someone suggests more do-goodery are sorely lacking in parliament, given the widespread acceptance of do-goodism in Denmark.
