Hayek on Social Security 4

“We must also expect that the availability of this assistance will induce some to neglect such provision against emergencies as they would have been able to make on their own.  It seems only logical, then, that those who will have a claim to assistance in circumstances for which they could have made provision should be required to make such provisions themselves.”

— Hayek in The Constitution of Liberty, ch. 19 “Social Security”.
