The poverty is not so much of material things as it is a poverty of morality, of being taught what is "the right thing to do" and there being effective consequences for NOT doing the right thing. We cannot bemoan the fact that 70% of African-American births are out of wedlock when we subsidize the consequences of the act. If one sees a bleak outlook for being careless or downright neglectful, perhaps he/she will think twice before doing it.
