The Evil That Man Breeds

John smith's ghastly comments offends me to the core. Read what he said at MrBrown here and here.

To suggest that "society should not have to shoulder the burden" of helping children with special needs if their parents chose to raise such a child, to me, defies the very nature of Humanity. This is not the brave new world or clockwork orange, mate. The logic of responsibility simply doesn't apply here. We, as civilised humans, should have a DUTY to help ALL who needs help. By Smith's, we should just ship all prisoners, drug addicts, disabled people, the elderly and the chronically ill to an island and let them rot there because, well, we didnt ask for it did we, so we shouldn't have to "shoulder the burden" of caring for them, right?
So you have cancer, sorry its because you smoked, no medicare for you. Diabettes? Who asked you to eat all that oily hawker food, no subsidy for you. You are old and have no money? Sorry we can't help you either because you brought it onto yourself by not saving enough while you were younger. Straight out the door you go, do not pass Go, do not collect $200.

If this the type of society you want to live in?
