It never ceases to amaze me how government programs in the end only serve as a means for some to try and cheat the system. John Ransom does a great job of describing the greed.

Adding to this ability of humans to be good and evil is the moral relativism  that guides the thinking processes of the modern mind. The end can justify the means.
