Example text

De som eventuellt drabbas av detta beteende är svåra att peka ut och den gamla devisen att det är fult att leva på bidrag har effektivt arbetats bort hos dagens unga. Undantaget är fortfarande rena socialbidrag, som upplevs som kränkande. Men att få ut mesta möjliga bostadsbidrag, allrahelst via att skaffa sig en skenlägenhet under värnplikten, eller att skriva upp sin lön för att få ut högre föräldraförsäkring, eller försöka få ut arbetslöshetsunderstöd men samtidigt arbeta svart, är accepterade sätt att bidragsfuska.

Det handlar för den stora majoriteten moderater inte om att vända politiskt beslutsfattande ryggen, det handlar om att vidareutveckla en insikt om att politiskt beslutsfattande inte räcker och dessutom i många situationer inte alls fungerar. Den insikten blandas med en ide om vad som skall placeras i det politiska kraftfältets ställe. Ett civilt samhälle som framförallt bärs upp av den lilla världen och som är fylld av de många nära frivilliga relationer som vi har, både inom och utom familjen.

45 Den helt dominerande kraften i det som skall ersätta den socialdemokratiska eran är moderaterna. Det borde leda till en inträngande granskning av vad moderaterna avser att göra och vad de vill sätta i välfärdsstatens ställe. För den som är intresserad av framtiden och inte historia borde det moderata handlingsprogramsarbetet och det slutgiltiga förslaget till nytt handlingsprogram som antas på moderaternas partistämma i november 1993, vara intressantare än varje socialdemokratisk kongress. Den insikten har inte riktigt uppenbarat sig för svenska media, och därmed inte heller för svenska folket.
