Interestingly, the traditional source for charity has been churches.
Essentially, they offer a deal; accept our meme-set, and we'll feed you.
The recipient must choose the deal and go along with it, or at least fake it
convincingly. It's my impression that religious charity hurts dignity less
than government charity, which is generally quite unearned.

So there is a way out, albeit one with sometimes nasty consequences, as the
religions are sometimes quite a problem themselves.
