The Real Villain of Ferguson is LBJ's Great Society

Yes, a point I have been banging away at for years (See my 2011 piece: The Labor Department Secretary Reports on LBJ's Great Grandkids), is now becoming obvious.

Roger Simon writes:
 “The Great Society. There, I’ve said it. The Great Society, which I voted for and supported from the bottom of my heart, is the villain behind Ferguson. Ferguson is the Great Society writ large because the Great Society convinced, and then reassured, black people that they were victims, taught them that being a victim and playing a victim was the way to go always and forever. And then it repeated the point ad infinitum from its debut in 1964 until now — a conveniently easy to compute fifty years — as it all became a self-fulfilling prophecy. The Great Society and similar policies screwed black people to the wall. It was racist to the core without knowing it. Nobody used the N-word. In fact, it was forbidden, unless you were Dr. Dre or somebody. But it did its job without the word and did it better for being in disguise.”

And I will make it even more clear, LBJ's Great Society has created a subset in the black community that can only be classified as the Urban Primitive Society. This will not change until, for starters, minimum wage laws are eliminated, drug laws are ended and compulsory school attendance laws are discarded. The state has destroyed opportunities for many, many black youth. It is time they leave the kids alone, so that they can finally get the opportunity to get a job in the private sector and learn how to live in civilized society.
