“We waged a war on poverty and poverty won.”
– President Ronald Reagan, 1988 State of the Union Address

The dust has settled and the evidence is in: The 1960s Great Society and War on Poverty programs of President Lyndon Baines Johnson (LBJ) have been a colossal and giant failure. One might make the argument that social welfare programs are the moral path for a modern government. They cannot, however, make the argument that these are in any way effective at alleviating poverty.

In fact, there is evidence that such aggressive programs might make generational poverty worse. While the notion of a “culture of dependence” is a bit of a cliché in conservative circles, there is evidence that this is indeed the case – that, consciously or not, the welfare state creates a culture where people receive benefits rather than seeking gainful employment or business ownership.

This is not a moral or even a value judgment against the people engaged in such a culture. Again, the claim is not that people “choose to be on welfare,” but simply that social welfare programs incentivize poverty, which has an impact on communities that has nothing to do with individual intent.

We are now over 50 years into the development of the Great Society and the War on Poverty. It is time to take stock in these programs from an objective and evidence-based perspective. When one does that, it is not only clear that the programs have been a failure, but also that they have disproportionately impacted the black community in the United States. The current state of dysfunction in the black community (astronomically high crime rates, very low rates of home ownership and single motherhood as the norm) are not the natural state of the black community in the United States, but closely tied to the role that social welfare programs play. Or as Dr. Thomas Sowell stated:

“If we wanted to be serious about evidence, we might compare where blacks stood a hundred years after the end of slavery with where they stood after 30 years of the liberal welfare state. In other words, we could compare hard evidence on “the legacy of slavery” with hard evidence on the legacy of liberals.”

Here’s a peek into how black America has been a victim of LBJ’s Great Society and War on Poverty.

good post, ammo.

I've actually had a book on my shelf regarding LBJ and The Great Society that I've been meaning to read for months, now.

There are many points that I'd like to make, but I'll do that in one long post in the future.

Yeah, "inadvertent" is an outright Lie! This was the plan from the start. LBJ: "I'll have those niggers voting Dim for life"!

I hope to come across that post! LBJ is still lionized among a lot of Dems (the ones who can remember his administration, at least) and it always baffled me why.

Most liberals are raciest. That should help explain.

  • I love Conservative Political Forum!
The remarkable economist and writer Thomas Sowell wrote in one of his books that the most downtrodden and stupid segments of the population at the beginning of the 20th century were Jews and Poles, emigrants from the Russian Empire.

But in those days there was no Wealfer and no social programs.

Now Jews and Poles are one of the wealthiest strata of American society.
