I have a list of things:
- where people can help them themselves, they must first try to help themselves before asking government for help (people are losing their problem solving skills. This leads to the need for more government services, and also leads to greater anxiety in the community from people who can no longer problem solve)
- stop trying to solve the problems of people who don't want help (it never works). People must want help (ie. not just ask for it, but actively participate in the solution)
- have help available where it is needed
- stop teaching just individual rights in schools. Teach individual rights that are balanced by the communities rights, and your responsibilities to your community.
My view of this is government 'initiatives' are deskilling people, making them less able to solve their problems (which then requires ever more government services), which increases their anxiety (because they can no longer solve by themselves as many of their own problems), which makes them more likely to call for government services...and focusing just on individual rights, leads the community to become self entitled. And also leads kids making bad decisions that cause others to get angry at them (because the others rights are being infringed)...but no understanding why the conflict arises and both claiming victimhood, and anger at government for not standing up for their rights.
- and mostly because this is being lost: have a class at the begining of high school that teaches kids what self esteem means, how and why you should stand up for yourself, why respect for others is necessary etc. So, so many young people no longer have any idea about the importance of these, how to do these things well, or how to obtain such.
The government has been enabling the loss of peoples resilience over decades. It should do something to help rectify it.
There's a list of other things too, but that's more than enough
