Sympathy vs discipline.
In the Roman days when we all had a Pater Familias ... if you didn't work, the Pater Familias would have you beaten for laziness. He took care of his own, so the Emperor wouldn't have to take care of him. All societies are based on work, and for some people, all work is slavery (particularly if you are a Patrician). Of course I am sympathetic to the disabled ... but in olden times they would have died early, because the support network was minimal. But there is evidence that even Romans took care of their family members (but probably expected them to contribute what they could, not play with their iPhones all day). The slaves (hired help) didn't get that kind of treatment, they weren't family. In any society in any age ... woe to you if you have no family. To some degree, the government can be the family for those people today ... but still contributing to the common good should be required, even if it is only filling pot holes. The wealthy and powerful will always escape the virtue of work ;-)
