Well, food stamps was introduced in the 1960s, I believe. This was around the time of the Great Society legislation aimed at curtailing poverty, improving social welfare among other things. Other pushes in that decade were the Social Security act, Medicade, etc.

"All mankind is of one author, and is one volume; when one man dies, one chapter is not torn out of the book, but translated into a better language...No man is an island, entire of itself...any man's death diminishes me, because I am involved in mankind; and therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls; it tolls for thee." - John Donne
