You’re quite right about the drug use. Didn’t mean to give it a pass. What’s the gang epidemic all about after all? Which came first the chicken or the egg? Lawlessness where sexual mores are concerned led to the disintegrating black family, a perfect storm facilitating drugs & gangs.

Twentieth century African Americans did not invent gangs. Gangs are as old as humanity. George Gilder has pointed out that male humans, when not kept home by the power of a woman, will have a strong temptation to join warrior societies.

In some cultures, such as Europe and Japan in the middle ages, those warrior societies took political power and became the ruling classes. Now, there’s a comforting thought, looking out at our modern urban landscape.

In many parts of modern western societies, women have given up the power that they used to have, in the name of equality, and sexual liberation, and the result is a more violent society.
