Although Murray just focuses on white America, his conclusions mirror what I have been talking and writing about for 20 years regarding destruction of black communities by welfare state government programs.

It’s not an accident that the welfare state growth took off in the 1960’s, the decade of the sexual revolution, the pill, and shortly therefore, legalization of abortion under all circumstances.

In this new culture of materialism, the politicians of the left claimed they could understand everything and solve all our problems – with other people’s money, of course.

They could build programs to eliminate poverty, eliminate the problems and vagaries of aging, and deliver health care to everyone.

Now today these problems remain. Except now we’re hanging on the thread of bankruptcy, tens of trillions in debt trying to substitute government and other people’s money to deal with problems that can only be solved by a free and responsible people.

The left hates Breitbart for his effectiveness in getting out the truth.

It’s the same culture that forces me to get police protection to talk about personal responsibility on college campuses.

The final irony is that truth and compassion come from humility not pride. Sadly, a cold and cruel left will not grasp this truth from Breitbart’s unexpected death.
