Despite our country’s dedication to the War on Poverty, we’re losing: why? Star Parker keys in on two very important reasons: because we no longer hold people accountable for their actions and because we’ve eliminated our nation’s moral compass (God). She goes further and shows how government programs specifically target different races, keeping certain people in slavery to the system while others are free to improve themselves and prosper.
Parker doesn’t write based on opinion or ideology – she presents facts (often ignored by the media and government) that show a direct link between the decline of the two-parent heterosexual home and the rise in welfare. She also writes from experience – an African-American woman who not only lived on welfare, but got out.
It’s hard to read this book and wonder why this information isn’t taught in schools, churches, and at goverment funded rallies. If we really want to end poverty, then this is the information we need. Anyone who is serious about helping the poor (or getting out of poverty) needs to stop making excuses and read this book.
