It seems to me that conservatives have bought into the egalitarian fallacy that the typical person on welfare is not burdened by low IQ and low future time orientation genes. The only difference between liberals and conservatives is how they think they can reform welfare recipients and make them into model SWPL types.
The liberals believe that poor people are poor because they lack money. They believe that if you give poor people enough money, then they will magically start behaving like middle class people.
Conservatives also believe that they can turn poor people into middle class people. The conservative solution is to give poor people the proper incentives. They figure that if you take away their welfare money, they will then be forced to rise to the challenge of being middle class. The conservatives refuse to acknowledge that a person genetically predisposed to low intelligence and low future time orientation, furthermore corrupted by low class values, probably won't be able to rise to the challenge.
The conservative approach will probably work for some poor people, but most are hopeless. Having been raised without middle class values, it’s too late for adult poor people to acquire them.
My two-pronged solution to the problems of poverty, which would actually work if anyone bothered to implement them, is (1) sterilization as a requirement for collecting welfare; and (2) teaching children middle class values in school.
Commenters have claimed that there is no support for sterilization, so beating the drums for it is a waste of time. Well, if you look at it that way, most of my blogging is a waste of time. The problem is that people don’t believe in HBD (that's human biodiversity). All things we perceive to be “social problems” have their roots in HBD, so if you refuse to acknowledge HBD, then it’s impossible to figure out the correct solution to “social problems.”
Commenters have said that people will think that sterilization for welfare is inhumane. But how can it be more inhumane than no welfare at all? At least under my plan, people have a choice. If they don't want to be sterilized, then they have the opportunity to rise to the challenge and get a job.
