Promiscuous entitlement handouts by the State, without obligations, expectations and responsibilities, oppress the poor by giving them an almost insurmountable disincentive to escape from poverty. They are contrary to the command to "loose the bonds of wickedness, to undo the heavy burdens, to let the oppressed go free, and to break every yoke" (Isa. 58:6).
