I remember Star Parker once mouthed the following - "we have the formula to escape poverty - Fear God; Work diligently; Manage your money." What utter nonsense! If the poor were to ever take such advice to heart, they might over the years become INDEPENDENTLY WEALTHY. But you can't have a ghetto with empowered, independently wealthy people... That's why here at How to Make a Ghetto (HTMAG), we propose instead DEPENDENCE.
This principle is very much related to the first. We must reinforce in the popular culture and in academia a strong sense of victimhood among the poor. We must never let them forget that they are the victims of oppression, racism, and other forces. They must focus on this. Some of them might say, "I ought not let the racism and actions of others deter me; I can to a large degree shape my own destiny." However, such happy talk might lead to the poor's uplifting... it emphasizes their DIGNITY as human beings, and fills them with a strong sense of COMPETENCE and ENTERPRISE. Kill such a spirit! The poor are VICTIMS, and they must never forget that.
This is a big one! it might be the main ingredient yet! There is great evidence that shows that traditional morals about marriage and monogamy actually lead to a stronger social and economic situation. But is it worth the price of sexual freedom?? We must de-emphasize the importance of MARRIAGE, and instead remove taboos on fornication, illegitimacy, and divorce. We can facilitate this by enacting welfare and tax policies that actually DISCOURAGE MARRIAGE. Yes, almost everyone agrees that STRONG FAMILIES will lead to an improved economic status, but here at HTMAG we ain't with that! Destroy families --> make a ghetto. Simple as that.
There's more to come! Destroying the social fabric of our cities doesn't happen over night... So join us, as together we learn HOW TO MAKE A GHETTO.
