Perverse Incentives Produce Perverse Behavior

One of the countless problems with liberalism is the perverse incentives it creates. In a free country, you get ahead through positive qualities like industriousness, self-discipline, and creativity. In a country run by moonbats, those are the qualities of “capitalist oppressors” who are pitilessly demonized and looted; the path to success is through victimhood, defectiveness, and an utter lack of dignity. If you want to know where this lunacy leads, look no further than liberal Europe:

Long term unemployed Hans Url, 56, had just been told his hand-outs would stop if he did not accept work found for him by job centre staff.

And when his claims that he was too sick and did not like the work were challenged with the offer of a medical, he took drastic measures.

Url, of Mitterlabill, southern Austria, rigged up a mitre saw and sliced off his foot — then put it in the oven for good measure to ensure no surgeon could reattach it.

Unfortunately for Url, his plan to avoid work has gotten off on the wrong foot:

But job centre staff have delivered a blow to hapless Url’s plan by saying his new disability does not rule him out for work.

At least he should be able to force others to pay his hospital bill.

    Moonbats (socialists) would have us disarmed and kumbaya-tarded such that 2 million Chinese could waltz into the US carrying only .410 shotguns and simply assume control. Food on your stove would go from tasty chicken-fried steak one night, to fish heads and rice the next, the owners fertilizing a tree in the front yard.

    The mitre saw is our national defense, the foot is the citizen, the idiot operating the saw is a Democrat.

    Our job is to make him use it on his head, then return the saw to its proper use building a free nation.

    Uh… props for being able to actually go through with sawing off his own foot with power tools?

    He seems very avant garde in the culinary department, maybe they should find work for him as a chef.

  4. AC says:

    Never underestimate a welfare parasite’s drive and ambition to live a life free of productive drive and ambition.

  5. AC says:

    He could also find work with an Islamic police department. His skills are in high demand in Saudi Arabia and Iran, and if he waits another few decades, Europe, as well.

    If he ever gets a nose bleed, I understand that a tourniquet tied tightly between the bleeding site and the heart (e.g., right under the chin would work nicely) can solve the problem.

    Go for it, Hans! (You win, Hans down!)

    Stupid prog. There’s your karma, ripe as peaches.

  8. James McEnanly says:

    I have never heard of anyone working so hard to be lazy.

    Cut of a foot to get out of work. He should have cut off his head, I am sure that would’ve showed them.

  10. Ghost of FA Hayek says:

    He also now has adequate experience to work in a slaughter house

    I was thinking about this some more…

    There are men in this country who have their limbs blown off in some backward ass, 13th century, third world, sandbox hellhole by ass-raping, cave dwelling, religious fanatics, and then gone through years of surgeries and physical therapy. These are men who truly deserve to be supported by the taxpayers they fight to protect. Yet, many of them go on to lead productive lives, contributing to our society and providing for their families.

    FUCK YOU HANS! Ask your socialized medicine quacks for a cyanide capsule and a glass of water – the world will be better for it.

    Bravo Henry!!! Very well said.

    I continue to be baffled as to the rational and fascination that liberals/moonbats have for European model for doing things. They continue to forget that two of the most destructive slaughters in human history (aka World War I and II) was wage on that continent. The future seems bleak, failed welfare states, brankrupt governments, native populations that are facing extinction due to falling birth rates and abortion, and conquest by muslim immigrants determined to make Islam the sole dominate political/religous system. It seems liberals/moonbats have a death wish and a rabid determination to take as many down with them as possible, or the desire to be a “god” corrupts them to insanity.
