Australian Welfare Card is Unethical

The Coalition Government's intention to bring in a welfare card tied to a specific bank account for welfare recipients is immoral and unworkable. Stopping those on unemployment and disability support from buying alcohol is absolute hypocrisy. Politicians drink the best spirits, wine and beer that money can buy. Incidentally, much of it is paid for by the taxpayer. They do not have the right to prevent others from consuming what they want.

Australian welfare card
Anyway, people are not stupid. Recipients will just convert groceries to cash. Supermarkets sell gift cards. The government cannot exclude purchases of these like it is going to do for alcohol and gambling. Where will the list of banned things end? Recipients will buy a gift card then walk to the bottle shop opposite and buy drink with it. Ironically, supermarkets own the large bottle shop chains.

If gift cards are blocked, the unemployed will buy expensive supermarket products then go into the street and hock them to passers-by. There is no way government can force spending on children. This is an attempt at social engineering which is condemned internationally. The US brought in food stamps. Now people can buy drugs with food stamps. It will not work. Citizens will change their behavior in unexpected ways. Centralized governments have tried to control people in the past. This works for a while then society breaks at the seams.
