The Crutch of Dependency
Any person can be willingly or unwillingly dependant on another person. The person who is depended on has the choice to support the dependency of the other. No rule, or law, or statute, or other directive from other men can condemn any person to support any other person, nor can it forcefully halt the act of supporting those who are dependant.
Those who become dependent; whether it is by the hand of god or by chance of the universe, whether it is upon their own volition or it is not, can become equally dependent on any support that provides for their needs. Any infant child will be dependent on its parents for survival and all basic needs. However, it does not have to be a parent to care for these needs. The child will not shrivel and die if its needs are catered to by any willing person. Simply favoring any one provider of a need over any other provider for a need does not kill the child.
If the parents of the child cannot support for its needs then who must? Wont those close to the child and family be so inclined to tend to the infants needs? Before seeking out and burdening strangers and communities of individuals outside with the needs of the dependant, should not those most
intimately involved with the greatest loss or gain at stake tend to those needs? And if there is no willing or able supporter of the dependant should not that natural course of events occur?
Stay the Dependents Oppression of the Independent.
The individual is the truest ideal of pure intent and purpose for the fulfillment of their own sufficiency and sustainment. No person can accurately and intentionally provide for the needs of the individual other than his or herself. No individual will allow their present situation to decay beyond the point which they truly deserve. Any person who has put forth the effort and has spent the resources, will not allow their life’s lot to decay beyond the point which they are not satisfied. It is not for other men to deem the work done by an individual suitable for that individual to maintain their own lifestyle. However, it is for supporters of dependants to judge whether or not the work and effort done by the dependant is suitable; and therefore making the dependent suitable to be supported.
Each individual will do what they must to ensure they are satisfied in their own wants, needs, and desires before going forth and providing for others. There is no action taken that is not selfish in nature. No action is taken that reaps no benefit; at the very least an action is taken to repel or alleviate
detriment to oneself. Therefore, it is inevitable that individuals will cooperate with other individuals so that the proper and prudent care to oneself can be accomplished.
Each individual must maintain their own welfare and well being. If an individual’s state of being, regardless of cause, declines or falters it is the responsibility of that individual to support his or herself. The responsibility is no one’s but their own. It is not the natural requirement for a group of
individuals well and fine in their own right to be burdened by supporting others. It is the natural right for these well off individuals to decide themselves if they are to support or not support people in need.
It must be without external incentive that individuals decide whether or not to support one another. If the incentive to aid is not found within the ecosystem made up of dependants and supporters, then the individual providing the external incentive should support the dependant. There must be no consequence for choosing not to support an individual who has willingly allowed themselves to become dependent on another person. Just as a willing shut-in must be cut off to draw them out and to support their own existence, those that are dependent upon others must be cut off from their
supporters so that they may do for themselves.
If those dependant individuals wail and whine that the burden of life is too great for them, and that though they try and strive they cannot maintain the livelihood they deserve, then perhaps they do not truly deserve what they believe is theirs to have. If their burden is so unbearable, then why must it
rest on my shoulders? Even if I come to bear only the slightest of their burden, does it not then add to mine? I, or any other person, must not be burdened by any action of any other person. If I so choose, then I will support you. If I so choose, then I will allow you to reap what I have sown.
Each individual can pursue their livelihood to the ends of the Earth and so far that the light of stars cannot reach them. However, each individual in their pursuit must not, in truth, intentionally hinder, harm, or prove otherwise detrimental to any other individual in any way or through any course. If a
decision you make causes the choice that either you or me to die, then it must be who dies; unless, upon my own volition unsolicited and unprovoked, other than by my own deemed requirements, I choose to die in your place. And this shall hold true for all instances, better or worse.
