- If drugs can't even be prohibited from prisons, how on earth do prohibitionists seriously exect them to be prohibited from society? Face it, the more you try to ban them, the more profits you guarantee to criminals and corrupt policemen.
- When Libertarianz started all those years ago, we said it was wrong that we were all forced to pay no-hopers to breed. When the Domestic Purposes Benefit was first introduced in 1975, 17,000 women received the benefit. There are now 111,000 women receiving DPB. A typical DPB beneficiary with one child has an income of around $18 -20,000. It is not a 'safety net,' it is a hammock -- a hammock that costs taxpayers over $2 billion a year and just dehumanises the children it claims to protect, turning them into a meal-ticket for the irresponsible. Forced welfare is not benevolence. Namana is undoubtedly among the worst human beings in this country -- the DPB helped her to become that; prison taught her she had no need to change. Lindsay Mitchell reminds us just how disgusting this no-hoper really is.
