Altruism, the moral code that places need as the standard for entitlement , has a devastating effect on the very people it is intended to help.  As a believer in free will, I can see that need has a self-fulfilling characteristic.  If a person wants to, by their own actions they can place themselves in a position of need simply by continually spending all they earn and if being broke is the requirement for more money handouts, it follows that the sooner one is broke the sooner one can apply for more funds.

So just as being productive can be considered applying your effort constructively  to be needy is often the result of misdirecting your effort to destructive  paths.
