At the State of Idaho website we read:
The Idaho Department of Health and Welfare’s Self Reliance Office 6/2010
What is the Self Reliance office?
The Self Reliance office is the portion of Idaho Health and Welfare where people can apply for state funded public assistance.
This is what we call an ‘Orwellian’ use of language. It is language perverted and destroyed so as to serve leftist ideology and make clear thinking impossible. Accordingly, one who accepts welfare via the State from productive citizens is ‘self-reliant,’ when in truth he is the exact opposite.
