Here's a link to a brief radio interview that took place during my invited talk at Susquehanna University on Sep. 29, 2015.
"America’s national character will have to be changed if progressives are going to implement their agenda. So, changing social norms is the progressive agenda."He is correct, of course. But I propose that we all might as well get used to a sea change in America's national character and its social norms. Let me explain.
In total, the United States spends nearly $1 trillion every year to fight poverty. That amounts to $20,610 for every poor person in America, or $61,830 per poor family of three.Don't you suppose that just about any poor family of three would be tickled silly to have $61,830 in income per year? Why don't we just give the poor the money and dispense with the 126 federal welfare programs that currently require bureaucrats to administer?
