|We can see a similar result caused by Western nations’ welfare states. Women become dependant on the state, essentially marrying the government to provide them with material sustenance and security. Men in the welfare culture live outside a culture that needs marriage, and become superfluous loners with a vastly greater likelihood of committing crimes and joining gangs as a substitute for family.|
The welfare state destroys marriage therefore men become criminals?
Ah, yes. Just stop giving out welfare cheques and crime rates will drop. That'll work.
Ooh someone on UD makes a testable hypothesis! So Mr Harris, how about you compare the rates of gang crime in the Nordic countries to those in the US.
Oh right, ID doesn't get into pathetic details like actually testing hypotheses. Never mind.
