What is America to do about the rising tide of horror? Visitors from Europe or Japan shake their heads in wonder at the squalor and barbarity of America's cities. They could be forgiven for thinking that the country had viciously and deliberately neglected its poor and its blacks. Of course, it has not.
All 84 percent black Detroit needs to survive is a library full of Ayn Rand...
Since the 1960s, the United States has poured a staggering amount of money into education, housing, welfare, Medicaid, and uplift programs of every kind. Government now spends $240 billion a year to fight poverty, and despite the widespread notion that spending was curtailed during Republican administrations, it has actually gone up steadily, at a rate that would have astonished the architects of the Great Society.
Federal spending on the poor, in real 1989 dollars, quadrupled from 1965 to 1975, and has nearly doubled since then.Twenty-one years ago, this book was the Conservative Book Club book of the month. Now, one of the top contenders for the 2016 Republican nomination for Presidency is opening an outreach center in Detroit. [Sen. Rand Paul to help open Republican outreach office in Detroit, Detroit Free Press, 11-21-13]:
As the economist Walter Williams has pointed out, with all the money spent on poverty since the 1960s, the government could have bought every company on the Fortune 500 list and nearly all the farmland in America. What do we have to show for three decades and $2.5 trillion worth of war on poverty? The truth is that these programs have not worked. The truth that America refuses to see is that these programs have made things worse. (p. 331-332)
U.S. Sen. Rand Paul will be opening an Republican Party outreach office in Detroit while visiting the city next month to speak to the Detroit Economic Club.
Paul’s political action committee announced earlier this week that the Republican from Kentucky — who is widely considered a potential presidential candidate in 2016 — would speak to the club Dec. 6 and “unveil his new legislative proposal to remove bankrupt Detroit and other economically blighted areas from poverty and the shackles of big government.”
Today, the Michigan Republican Party and Chairman Bobby Schostak announced that Paul will attend the opening of an African American Engagement Office that same morning at 19208 Livernois Ave. The party said speakers will discuss the party’s “outreach efforts and our commitment to revitalizing Michigan’s urban centers.”So what is America to do about the rising tide of horror in almost entirely urban black nightmares like Detroit? Open up an outreach center and handout copies of Friedrich Hayek, Milton Friedman, and Ayn Rand work.
No matter the trillions spent (up until 1992, when Jared Taylor wrote his seminal work), and the trillions more spent since trying to counter nature's brutal truth, the end-result is still barbarous conditions of depressing squalor.
The brutal truth must now be stated: our attempts to civilize the black population of America (yes, individual blacks were capable of assimilating to white America, but in the absence of whites - as noted by Detroit 2013 - America disappears) represents the greatest sunk cost in the history of business. After all, wasn't (wait, it still is the primary goal) the American Government in the business of attempting to trick nature with the nurturing redistribution of the white man's taxes?
Jared Taylor's culminating chapter, "What is to be done?", is a question that still goes unanswered.
