I have seen and heard a lot recently about how people who are on benefits or government aid shouldn't be able to use none essential resources paid for by tax payers, I hear a lot about the lazy good for nothings who use the systems to help them care for their families and this made me think. Should there be restrictions on who is able to use certain none essential resources, such as childrens centres for activities with our children? Should tax payers be able to expect something in return from able bodied people using the system, for example via volunteering? Are there types of people whom you feel it is ok for them to use the assistance provided and others who you feel are not? Why do you feel that?
Just to clairfy when I say government assistance I mean above and beyond what most people are entitled to, I know in the UK and I believe in Aus parents are entitled to some form of child benefit, amongst a few others.
