  •  I don't know if I agree with the (7+ / 0-)

    idea that a safety net correllates with less criminal activity.  Indeed the past riots in France show it to be a contributing factor.  The muslim youth who are segmented from the rest of society do not integrate, the high cost of removing bad employees greatly reduces opportunities for new ones.

    The young male who strives to be self-sufficient is places in a servile role instead of the culturally male-affirming role of provider.  This results in low self esteem and a proclivity to violence toward authority.

    So while it may be true in some cases and to some degree it most certaily is not true in all cases for all degrees.

    •  there are very few things to which the word (8+ / 0-)

      "ALL" would apply. :)

      I thin we always have to examine probabilities because there will always be exceptions to things. Ideally we ant to create policy that effectively deals with MOST. We can never do ALL.

      Even the new testament says "the poor you will always have with you...."

      Don't tell me what you believe. Tell me what you do and I will tell you what you believe. h/t MeteorBlades
