I herd this on the radio a couple of weeks ago and I've been turning it over in my mind since. It's from a debate in the House of Commons on work and employment:"taxpayers recognise that while there should be a welfare state to act as a safety net, it must not be a lifestyle choice"Discerning members will deduce that the speaker, Mr Ranil Jayawardena (North East Hampshire), is a Conservative.

I have come to the conclusion that he's wrong, even after you remove his emotive terminology. I think there's a net benefit to society if paid employment were a lifestyle choice as opposed to a financial obligation.
I take particular exception to his mandatory "must". It was the "must" which caught my attention as I was listening to the radio report in the first place.
