End of History - Politics of Poerty

This is a reply to a talk by NYU profesor Mead on C-span.

I caught your talk on C-span and have a few comments:

History won't end as long as there are people, pencils and paper around.

We may always have the poor with us but most are pushed through the cracks rather than falling and poverty can be dealt with fairly.

To assume that the impoverished have no political power is to assume that the power of the pen and the power of the ballot box are redundant.

Welfare reform was a joke for knowledgeable people and dope dealers.

The U.S. has handled the violent predictions of Marx and others successfully so far. Hopefully, conservative thinking and power will not change the direction.
