Erosion of self-reliance

I was thinking of the general reaction of the press and most of the Left to Katrina when I ran across this in Bill Whittle's essay on Freedom:

... there is more than the physical restriction of freedoms: There is the slow erosion of self-reliance, self-confidence and self-determination among a nation. The more your government restricts your options, the more you psychologically look to government to keep you safe, fed, clothed, housed and sustained.

There is a word for people who are fed, clothed, housed and sustained fully by others, and that word is SLAVES.
