How do you come to that conclusion? There is no time in history where a government did a better job of helping people that the Free Market or the Catholic Church. In fact, government giving creates envy and is stealing, as Centismus Annus says. Siocialim is a sin.
Where does Centismus annus say government giving creates envy and is stealing? The government has helped the poor by building the roads, highways, electrical system, clean water system, telephone system, public school system and on and on, The buildings we live and work in are safe because of government regulations. All you have to do is go live in a place where there is no government regulations to see the difference. I have lived in S.E. Asia and people are dying because there is no government regulations when it comes to building houses or public buildings or how electrical systems are installed or any regard for pollution. People live and die based on good regulation such as we have here in the U.S.
Please see #190 of the Compendium where we learn that it is our obligation to participate in the democratic system. Catholic social morality (CST) teaches that God made us as social creatures and government, democratic government like we have here in the U.S. and say Canada is a good thing.
The idea that government can't do anything right is not very supportable when one considers that the government is made up of citizens like you and me just like the public sector. People are people no matter where they work. There are good people in the government and there are bad people in the private sector.
