See, This Is What I'm Getting On About

Public programs are fundamentally illiberal; when people become dependent on them it provides the government with yet another lever for controlling behavior. If you trust an arbitrary government to govern wisely then this might not be an issue for you, but history strongly suggests that the public sector is made up of people who are, at best, no more virtuous that the rest of humanity. It follows from there that we can curb the misapplication of power by not granting it in the first place.
