Leftist policies keep the poor poor by consolidating the cycle of poverty with only a few creature comforts in return.
1- High taxation: creates a disincentive to ambition, enterprise and vision.
2- Public services: creates a dependence on the state for essentials instead of getting the poor onto their own two feet.
3- Universal healthcare: creates a ‘sicknote’ culture amongst the poor.
4- Generous social welfare: creates a dependence on the state and a disincentive to work.
5- Education: The left never argue for universal education which would be a great leveller and create real opportunities for the poor to advance economically.
6- Cannabis: It’s called dope for a reason, how many leftists argue for legalised cannabis that will keep the poor suitably doped.
7- Soft on crime: criminal and anti-social activity devastates communities, a severe line on crime is needed to relieve communities.
8- Immigration: Affects pay and leads to job displacement aswell as stretching public services.
All in all leftist policies are designed to prevent the poor breaking out of the cycle of poverty. Instead they create a permanent underclass unable to stand on their own two feet.
