Liberalism is all about convincing people that they can live a better life at someone else's expense, and that that model will work forever. Of course, it works until the music stops, and then you have riots (as most of Europe is illustrating), but that doesn't stop idiots from enthusiastically handing over their freedoms (and votes) in exchange for free candy until then.

It's the old story of ants vs. grasshoppers, only in this version, grasshoppers get to vote themselves some of the ants' property -- more each year, actually.
