The Rand Paul about doing a 'disservice' to the unemployed reminded me of the Inquisition. The Inquisitors believed they were saving people's souls, so torture was completely justified in their eyes. People even today find a way to justify it:

"The Spanish people loved their Inquisition."

When one digs under the surface, though, it's really about power maintenance - keeping the power for those who already have it.
