    I meant "children of the latter group"--those who have their initiative destroyed by getting money for which nothing is expected in return, except complaining and waiting in line for the bureaucrats to get off their duffs.

    There is nothing that does more to destroy initiative and, therefore, "opportunity" than government handouts. These do double and triple damage to individuals (both those who have the money stolen from them by the gun-totting government and those who receive), children (particularly of the former group), society, the economy, and the government. Since these programs are unsustainable (maintained in essence by half a billion Chinese workers willing to work for $300 per month) and create an ever shrinking economy (and with it "opportunities"). Where does it end when there are people like Dina who want to make the government responsible for repairing her broken car?
