'[P]oliticians and their liberal allies... never condemn... growing cultural deviancy... contributing... to poverty, school failure, crime, drug abuse, emotional disturbance and a host of other social problems...."
Why? Because all of the macro-social problems, according to the prog-libs, can only be solved by more government control. Allow or even actively encourage the problems to grow in order to provide the justification for socialism as the solution.
This is the prog-lib political equal to insurgency warfare demonstrating that only a new form of government can resolve the terror and violence. Create the problem that only your desired solution can fix.
