A friend posted this on Facebook. I thought it was interesting (and sad) that in spite of the heavy spending that both France and the UK do on social programs they have this kind of poverty. Perhaps we conservatives are correct when we advocate against increased social spending. Could it be that there is a better way?

Well it would be interesting to see the poverty rates of those countries compared to ours.

I recommend "The Dream and the Nightmare" by Myron Magnet, and across the pond, Theodore Dalrymple writes in a similar vein about poverty, culture, and the underclass.
