How do you take a free people and make them into slaves? By giving to them, and in this way they learn to depend upon the giver. The more handouts from a government – the more people become slaves of the government.
How do you take enslaved people and make them free people? Make them responsible for what they need; let them earn a living and enjoy the fruits of their own labor. This way they will look to God their true Provider for what they need, and will depend upon Him. It is my believe that it is impossible to take a slave and make him free. It will take another generation to make people free; but it only takes one generation to make a people slaves. So be very careful when the government offers you something for nothing.
