      Democracy and Social Progress in England (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from Democracy and Social Progress in EnglandThe fact that relief under the poor laws is needed, not only by those described by Dr Zahn as the uninsured lower classes, but also by those who actually are receiving insurance benefits, cannot be attributed to the fact that poor relief carries with it less disgrace in Germany than elsewhere Dr Zahn explained in his Washington paper that the German poor laws provided that relief should be granted only in case of extreme want and only bare necessities shall be granted The destitute person is merely a recipient of charity with no legal right nor any means of compelling the authorities to grant relief The eleemosynary character of poor relief imposes certain civil disabilities upon the recipient Poverty is a disgrace The disabilities concern chie y electoral rights in the Empire, in the State, in the commune, and in the Church Other curtailments of civil rights affect the service as a juror, membership in the industrial and commercial courts, and, finally, the acquisition of settlement The basis for a grant of poor relief is proof of individual need and of the incapacity of the applicant to supply his essential wants The destitute person must therefore submit to a searching inquiry into all his personal relations both economic and legal, however dis tasteful this inquiry may be.How frequently the poorest workers find themselves outside the provisions of the social insurance laws and how important The problem of the uninsured lower classes is to the German poor relief authorities is indicated by Dr Zahn s picture of the exasperated officials in what he calls the small poverty stricken communes in rural districts because of the persistence of poor relief charges in spite of the social insurance schemes.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books Find at www.forgottenbooks.comThis book is a reproduction of an important historical work Forgotten Books uses state of the art technology to digitally reconstruct the work, preserving the original format whilst repairing imperfections present in the aged copy In rare cases, an imperfection in the original, such as a blemish or missing page, may be replicated in our edition We do, however, repair the vast majority of imperfections successfully any imperfections that remain are intentionally left to preserve the state of such historical works.
