Why is it that the majority of dissertations on poverty spend almost no time on what poor people can do to improve their lot in life, and almost all the time claiming how poverty is the fault of those that rose above it?

Nations are not "crippled by poverty;" they are crippled INTO poverty by tyrannical governments. Take stock of the poorest 50 countries in the world. Then take stock of the 50 most tyrannical and most socialist governments. You'll be amazed at the parallels.

How can you and I really expect to glide naively through life, as if to say, Lord, give me experience, but not grief, not sorrow, not pain, not oppostion, not betrayal, and certainly not to be forsaken. Keep from me, Lord, all those experiences which made Thee what Thou art! Then let me come and dwell with Thee and fully share Thy joy!

Video games don't affect kids. If Pacman had affected us when we were kids, everyone would be running around in darkened rooms, munching on magic pills and listening to repetitive electronic music.
