In a misguided attempt to alleviate poverty, I believe that we have declared war on wealth. One of the most notable ways we have done so is by declaring war on the personal traits and behaviors that would tend to create and preserve wealth. I imagine--perhaps utterly wrongly--that female liberal arts graduates from schools such as Alverno aspire to earn that sweet job with a nonprofit. Going to work for "the man" in an industrial or production-based business likely ranks low on their list of preferences. Ironically, this is just one of the so many areas in which liberal-minded folks act at cross-purposes to themselves. The engine of women's advancements in the twentieth century was a prosperous America that was a manufacturing and production powerhouse. What do we have now to offer to women--or men--other than broke nonprofits, ubiquitous debt and nonexistent jobs? SNAP cards?
