Should the lazy be made to work?

And if they refuse have their benefits slashed.
Nope, I don't mean those genuinely in need. I'd bend over backwards to help them out and I'm more than happy for my taxes to be spent on them.

Some people argue that to enforce such a scheme isn't viable. That isn't the point IMO. Even if it cost MORE than it was worth I would still agree with it. If people want a living they earn it. Whether that is sorting out rubbish for recycling or breaking stones to help build railway tracks and those with minor problems perhaps should be given typing jobs or something like that. Perhaps not quite what David had in mind, but I totally agree with his principle.

I think making lazy work would be an good idea. But making work forcely wont make any difference, as they wont work with enthusiasm. The only way lazy ppl can come on work, as by motivating them and making them enthusiastic about the work. IF one is succesfull in doing that. It may result into an great change in longterm basis !

Definitely yes. Cut down the unemployment benefits. If you are not ready to work, then don't expect the hard working public to feed you.
Enough of (ZA)Nu Labor. BNP is the only real alternative.

Off course. Hard working people should not me made to pay for sponsoring those lazy people playing computer games at their homes. Well.. if they are really handicapped or something like that it is OK.. else it is a big NO.

Lazy is a broad sweep. We have to be careful not to assume a person is lazy because they're out of work. You should try and fine-tune your statement.

I think people should never have to work.Instead of a propertarian profit system the econommy should be based on your ability or need and your production on the basis of use, not profit! Then you get rid of Markets n Money b/c everyone would be supplied with their needs, you would call this a gift economy.

I would call it a too damn lazy to work economy. And since no one would be doing anything there would be nothing for anyone to give you or anyone to give it to you.
That pot will make ya lazy for sure. :rolleyes:

i dont think u understand what im saying. Instead of working for profit and just making the rich even richier, work based on need. then everybody will get what they need through distribution centers. And by the way being cold and hungry would come from capitialism not a society ran by the people. You call me nieve but ur the one who is brainwashed!
