The Dependency Agenda

Instead of ending poverty, the Great Society policies launched by President Lyndon B. Johnson backfired, causing poverty to become more pervasive and insidious. The reason: Johnson’s welfare programs weren’t designed to succeed, but rather to establish an entrenched entitlement system leading to greater dependence on the federal government for the benefit of a “parasitic political class.” Kevin D. Williamson outlines the arguments why this is so in his new broadside The Dependency Agenda, published by Encounter Books.
