      Maybe we could all read For Us, the Living, and defeat the problem using an
      operational version of the economic system Heinlein so delicately explains which
      eradicates the idea of class warfare by revealing the fundamental truth that
      we're all actually not that different.

      There will always be poverty in a capitalist society. Welfare shouldn't be a
      livlihood. There should be more common sense policies, etc. Poor or not, black
      or white - there is right and wrong and pouring ones urine on someone riding a
      bike is a crime. Being a product of the projects is not an excuse.

      I am saddened to find such unfortunate opinions submitted on this listserv. Mr
      Conn observations are ridiculous. To suggest that women have babies to gain

      effects of poverty on our society are much more complex topics and require
      thoughtful analysis and discussion.


      Should we spend equal time discussing reality of white supremacy and racism that
      continue to produces the chronic inequities in our society. Why is a public
      school in upper NW equipped with the finest resources and schools in the inner
      city equipped with the worse resources. Many other examples of this phenomenon
      can be cited. Poverty creates an environment that breeds this dysfunctional
      behavior.


      I encourage a more thoughtful and reasoned dialogue regarding the problems of
      our youth. I suggest we spend some time with the work of Jonathan Kozol (among
      others)to better understand the challenges of our neighbors. Then develop
      effective solutions that combat poverty.
