Faked Disability, A Shame of America! A textbook to recognize the problem.

A Warning to America!

“You cannot bring prosperity by discouraging thrift; you cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong; you cannot help the wage earner by pulling down the wage payer; you cannot help the poor by destroying the rich; you cannot build character and courage by taking away a man’s initiative and independence; and you cannot help men permanently by doing for them what they could and should do for themselves.”  Abraham Lincoln

 

Society becomes strained and inefficient when there are large numbers of people not working for the common good.  

  The psychological effects of malingering can be horrible. It destroys an individual as a person. He has fallen into a trap and has been enslaved by a generous system, which is quite easy to defraud.

 

It is a rare person who under proper conditions will not accept a hand out from the government or big business. There are also people who will starve to death before they will accept charity. It should be made very clear that every American I know believes in giving all the aid possible to people with real disability and even more than is available.

 

Many people have the mentality of believing that they are entitled to welfare from the big government if they decide they want it.

 

The question must be asked, “Is it fair to society and to the patient in particular to provide him with ‘eating bread’ of idleness when it has been obtained by fraud?” Eating the bread of society by lying is sinning against God and society. Doctors and lawyers, are you also sinning against God and society when you knowingly, falsely or ignorantly help a person get undeserved money from the government or big business?
