Hello everyone,

2 million British children suffer from the effects of malnutrition. A
British study ("The Hunger within") shows that this is mainly a
consequence of the cancellation of state subvention. This is another
step to a more and more liberated economy (less state intervention) --
and those children, yeah, at least now they can freely decide if they
want to eat or not! The only thing that surprises me is that so many
decide not to eat. Stupid children.

Next step: Children should get the right to freely decide whether they
want to quit school and to work in the heavy industry! Best starting age
is probably at the age of 9 or 10, when they're young and ready to
learn. Yeah, British economy, they know how to do it -- one of the
highest economic growth rates in Europe!

And we can solve the problem with those poor families, too -- we simply
strike out public welfare, and the problem solves itself! And anyone who
dies from hunger or gets ill or both is of course guilty himself! Had he
done as much as he could -- he would have survived. Wouldn't he?

To those of you who haven't already noticed: Yeah, I'm a cynic.
