I ♥ Mark Stein

Writes America’s self-professed "undocumented anchorman" in “The Desperation-of-Depravation Myth,” from the current issue of National Review Online:

“The problem for the Western world is that it has incentivized non-productivity on an industrial scale.”

Filling in for Rush last week, Stein commented on the three classes that make up Western society these days, the government class, the dependency class, and the productive class.  The first two are growing by leaps and bounds and the third is shrinking – while simultaneously being on the hook to fund the other two ever more lavishly.

To my mind, that pretty much sums up what the problem is.  And all of the solutions proffered by the political class simply advocate more of the same.
