This is what happens when you have a religion that demands everyone to work as little as possible and do as much for the religion as possible. You hear all the time at the a$$emblies where someone cut way back so they could pio-sneer. They had been doing well, but now they are barely making it. If enough people do that, you are going to have zilch to give to those truly in need.
And they make it worse. To invest, whether in one's education or in hard assets, is "not trusting in Jehovah". All it successfully does is to ensure that people are going to become needy. These people are usually unable to pay much in taxes, because they consume so little aside gas and field circus supplies. The religion itself pays nothing. They are often on welfare because it opens the door to pio-sneer. (And the ones that go on welfare so they can pio-sneer, despite being capable of working and having the opportunity to be well off, ought to be ashamed of themselves.) To me, that is a blatant abuse of the welfare system--cutting back on work, depending on welfare, and then using the extra time to pio-sneer.
That they drain taxes even more because they cannot have blood is even more shameful. I am not against reasonable measures taken to prevent the need of a blood transfusion. But, if one becomes necessary, take it. At that point, it will be cheaper in money and in hospital time (and in down time) to give the blood, despite the possible risks, than it would be to try and do without. Not taking blood can result in worse suffering, in the form of brain damage, rather than in saving the life. And this adds to the waste they already impose on society.
