Before someone sends me bad vibes for being an arrogant rich person I was just reading some old Franklin quotes and came across this. I thought it was interesting that the exact same social issues were so similar in the 1700s. None of this is new.

"I am for doing good to the poor, but I differ in opinion of the means. I think the best way of doing good to the poor, is not making them easy in poverty, but leading or driving them out of it. In my youth I traveled much, and I observed in different countries, that the more public provisions were made for the poor, the less they provided for themselves, and of course became poorer. And, on the contrary, the less was done for them, the more they did for themselves, and became richer." On the Price of Corn and Management of the Poor[5] (29 November 1766). _Ben Franklin
