Ooooh! Hope and Change I Can Actually Get Behind! In Europe Of All Places!

Via Instapundit:

The Dutch royalty are, in a sense, telling the folks to go Dutch! 

"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."


"The classic welfare state of the second half of the 20th century in these areas in particular brought forth arrangements that are unsustainable in their current form."

(Now if they would only deal with their "unsustainable" immigration policy-otherwise known as cultural and national suicide-there could be hope for Europe.)
