A One Way Street called "Mutual Obligation"

What a disgusting sham!

While the poor are monitored, goaded, and shamed for a pittance, the government fails in its obligation to provide a livable income support payment, not to mention affordable housing, decent health care, and all the rest of it.

While the onus is on individuals to account for their every movement, to to educated in their entitlement, there is no onus on government to provide clear and simple policies.

While the onus is on individuals to pay back erroneous claims, there is no onus on the government to backdate claims that people dont know they are entitled to, or apply for in the mistaken belief that there is natural justice operating somewhere.

Not only drowning, but raging
