Uncle Sam's Plantation: How Big Government Enslaves America's Poor and What You Can Do About It

Multiculturalism

"The danger of the liberal definition of multiculturalism to our society is that it blurs the lines of right and wrong, and brings confusion to a once well-ordered society. This form of multiculturalism would like to argue that no one's view of morality and virtue is correct, and, yet, all are correct at the same time."

Overview

"The welfare system had some of its teeth taken out in 1996 under the welfare reform put forward by the Republicans in Congress, but the monster is far from dead. Time limits and work requirements are a step in the right direction, but the culture of Uncle Sam's Plantation is fed by the misguided policies of the left. As long as there are liberal ideologues in the halls of power, there is likely to be a long hard battle ahead for those of us committed to seeing poor people emancipated from a paternalistic system that robs them of their initiative, their freedom, and ultimately their hope for the future."
