At least he's honest about theft

Priest urges the poor to steal from chain stores

It's the free market alternative to welfare. It's still the poor and lazy stealing from those who are productive, but it cuts out the government middleman, using the free market to steal from the rest of us.

It's a horrible first step, but it is one. Government can 'privatize' welfare by just cutting it off entirely and letting theft handle it. This would actually increase efficiency by cutting out all the administrators and bureaucrats, meaning that the theft would be less costly per leech. Corporations could properly demonstrate their costs, losing the money thrown at them by the government and having direct theft, but they'd see lower taxes and higher spending as consumers have more money as well.

Maybe this is the first step towards smaller government with the added bonus that it exposes the illegality of the welfare system, allowing us to finally punish the leeches.
