My personal opinion is that the war on drugs seriously impeded any potential of a successful poverty fix

I post things sometimes in order to spark discussion.  I was seeing if the words "war on poverty" would get some commentary going since the "war on" moniker is so similar to the "war on drugs" and it's judged failings simply over things like monetary cost. 

 

Was the war won? 

 

Is the war something that can be won?

 

Do you have to be spoon-fed what to think or present a side in order to browbeat or ridicule opposing views?

  • In 1960, one in three children lived in poverty.
  • In 1940, one American child in ten did not live with either birth parent. Today the figure is one in twenty-five.
  • In the mid-1950s, 25% of the population lived below the poverty line.
  • In 1958, 60% of the population over sixty-five had incomes below $1,000.
  • n the 1950s, one-third of the white, native-born families could not get by with the income of only one working parent.
  • In the 1950s, racism was deeply institutionalized. 50% of black families lived below the poverty line; migrant workers suffered appalling working and living conditions; people of color were not permitted to take part in the American dream.

The Civilian Conservation Corps helped break the cycle of poverty and improve our lands.  Is it time to bring it back?
