The White Ghetto

Pope Francis' indictment of welfare applies to the US. For me the takeaway line from Kevin D Williamson's The White Ghetto is “The government gives people checks, but nobody teaches them how to live” and a sad takeaway indeed.

There is no cure for the sort of hopelessness this article shows that does not start with love and caring for individuals and creating a plan to get them out of the welfare and cultural trap that they are in.
