I wrote “The Political Economist and the Tramp”. I have strong beliefs that Social Darwinism is wrong. My poem ridicules Social Darwinism, and the very idea that we could leave fellow Americans behind. Leaving poor Americans without any government aid is wrong and immoral. Government assistance should be a moral obligation. Survival of the fittest” should be left to the animals in the wild, not to the civilized humans, when have the ability and tools to help the ones who need assistance. Many of our greatest inventors and innovators ere born poor. If those Individuals would have never been helped, where would we be without their Inventions and grants for society? Many of my colleagues say that failure Is directly tied to genetics, so we should Involuntarily sterilize those who are falling, a tactic also known as eugenics.
But, It has been proven that failure Is tied to the environment we were raised In, not our DNA. Who Is to say a rich man cannot come out of a poor family? If the poor and unstable are left to fend for themselves, some are likely to commit crimes so they are arrested. They will be given food and shelter for free by the government. Could you imagine, having to be arrested and placed with criminals, just because you can’t afford food or a home to live in? Nobody should have to resort to such methods of survival.
If you ask me, that is annalistic (and primitive? ). It takes all kinds to make the world go round, and the people who don’t make as much money as the big businessmen are part of that world, Just as much as the people like Andrew Carnegie are. It Is not only the government’s obligation and duty to help the Impoverished, but It Is also our duty not to let fellow Americans be left to their own devices when our overspent decides they don’t need to help those who have no money to help themselves.
Many say that it is in the best interest to America to let the poor fall away. But, tell me this: Would you like to be tossed aside by the higher authority because of you paycheck, or lack of one? The Constitution states “All men are created equal”. Well, if that is the case, then why aren’t all men being treated as equals?
