I find the lie that America tells itself and the world, that we care about our children, particularly heinous and pernicious.  By any measure the U.S., as a society — of course you love your children — doesn’t give a damn about the next generation. We should be ashamed of ourselves. That we do not care for and nurture our young is a serious national character flaw. One that will shape our future in ways great and small.

The Numbers Are Staggering: U.S. Is ‘World Leader’ in Child Poverty
