The economy and complaining

People are complaining about the ecomomy at the moment. Complaining about the price of food, petrol, etc, etc and yet they still eat expensive junk food, drive grat big fat cars, still consume beer and amazingly can still afford cigarettes. But I guess it is easy to blame the government and everybody else than take some personal responsibility and admit they financially illiterate, abuse food, cigarettes and alcohol.

I have always considered myself a socialist (I can almost hear you cringe)but socialism to me is about taking care of the weak or the needy like villagers or small communities still do, and about profit sharing. It has never been about giving handouts to lazy people who don't take any personal responsibility or contribute to society
