People too dependent on government

The reliance by people on government combined with the emotional response and seeming helplessness is perhaps dangerous

Re: “Urban society slides into helplessness” by Tom Fletcher, Sept. 10 issue.

Many thanks for this column. I believe that the reliance by people on government combined with the emotional response and seeming helplessness by many citizens to even temporary inconveniences is worrying in the least and perhaps dangerous in the longer run.

Please write more about this issue.
