At least someone's trying

King Willem-Alexander delivered a message to the Dutch people from the government in a nationally televised address: the welfare state of the 20th century is gone. In its place a “participation society” is emerging, in which people must take responsibility for their own future and create their own social and financial safety nets, with less help from the national government.

That's bound to upset a few of the entitled.  I wonder if the New Zealand government would have the balls.
