D Knox: Public policy is shaped by philosphy? Not really, it is shape by those who are in charge of things, the power brokers. They set an agenda, which in the last 16 years or so, the poor cause all the problems.

Of course policy is shaped by philosophy. In the end, most decisions about such things - for citizens and policy makers - come down to our view of "the good" or "the good life". And that's philosophy, kids.

Never been on the system, you have nothing to say period!

Come now, Grassroots ... only welfare recipients can have a voice in discussions of welfare? So only prisoners can talk about crime and punishment? Only teachers can discuss education? Only those who pay tax can speak of public expenditure? Only the dead can speak of murder?
