Intro

(todo)

  • History of social welfare.
  • Types of social welfare systems.
  • Goals of modern social welfare in the scheme of class-systems and political/economic/educational controls.
    • Most of the evils [!] discussed in this book (The Culture of Narcissism by Christopher Lasch) originate in a new kind of paternalism, which has risen from the ruins of the old paternalism of kings, priests, authoritarian fathers, slavemasters, and landed overlords. Capitalism has severed the ties of personal dependence only to revive dependence under cover of bureaucratic rationality. Having overthrown feudalism and slavery and then outgrown its own personal and familial form, capitalism has evolved a new political ideology, welfare liberalism, which absolves individuals of moral responsibility and treats them as victims of social circumstance. It has evolved new modes of social control, which deal with the deviant as a patient and substitute medical rehabilitation for punishment. It has given rise to a new culture, the narcissistic culture of our time, which has translated the predatory individualism of the American Adam [1][2] into a terapeutic jargon that celebrates not so much individualism as solipsism, justifying self-absorpotion as 'authenticity' and 'awareness'."
