"Think of it as evolution in action."

Oath of Fealty is a 1981 novel by Larry Niven and Jerry Pournelle, published originally by Phantasia Press, then by Timescape Books, with numerous reprints. Set in the near future, it involves an arcology, a large inhabited structure, called Todos Santos, which rises above a crime-ridden Los Angeles, California, but has little beyond casual contact with the city. The novel popularized the phrase "think of it as evolution in action," which occurs elsewhere in Niven's books.
The Plot Summary is accurate and its parallels to our state of affairs is obvious.

The idea that this situation could be significantly reduced if........."We just give them well-paying jobs."

And what skill-sets, education and law-abiding attitudes, exactly, do these prime examples of humanity possess?

How about this segment of our society has completed 3 generations, and is starting a 4th, of "families without supportive, disciplinary and protective fathers". Procreation and crime are their primary functions. And it is long into being institutionalized.

Thankfully, the DEMOCRAT Party is in power, locally and even nationally, to protect and preserve these peoples values and lifestyle. Right, Obama? Rahm? Hillary? Congressional Black Caucus? George Soros and BLM. And the list goes on ................

I may sound crude and cold, but I am getting tired of "giving". We give, provide social programs, provide security where we can and it's still bad. We knock down and rebuild, still bad. Jessie J and his leaches protest, organize marches, disrupt the city and its shopping areas and stop traffic.......NADA, just gets worse. Every possible entitlement is available but is grossly abused. Rahm wants to spend tax payers money to make it a sanctuary city.....yep, that will help.

They "want" what no one can provide; except from themselves.

They are undeserving and have not earned what they want. But the DEMOCRATS and Liberals, from Lyndon Johnson on, haven't schooled them in this fact of life. To do so would lose them their constituencies.

"This will go down in history as part of Obama's Legacy."

It's just the Obama Chapter contribution to the DEMOCRAT Party Book of Legacy.
