John Kerry: Self-Sufficiency is Off the Table

Courtesy of the The Massachusetts Daily Collegian, a quote from Senator John Kerry:

All politics is a reaction to felt needs. You need to get people to feel the need. Our job is to make sure the right felt need is taken into consideration.

I gather that, in the Senator’s worldview, getting people to the point at which they don’t actually need anything is not an option?
