"The government requests nothing in return so they get nothing in return."

Of course they get something.

Votes.

The welfare state is absurdly blatant vote-buying. Giving someone $5 to vote for you is illegal. Offering to take $50,000 from other voters and give it someone who votes for you is perfectly legal.

End the welfare state, and most of the West's problems go away. But you can't end it until most of the problems have been solved, because it will be impossible to get votes to do that.
