The Myth of the Culture of Dependency
I've posted a new page which has some bearing on my last few posts. It is a paper I'm working on, hopefully one day to be published in a magazine somewhere. It examines the idea of the culture of dependency that informs so much of Paul Ryan's policy proposals, I can find no evidence that such a thing actually exists. I'd appreciate feedback on it so that I can improve it further, this is an issue that I believe needs to be examined very seriously by the public and there is too little discussion or criticism of the notion. I will probably add some additional pieces to this, I do not yet examine international data which is a big part of my critique, to name just one piece still missing.
