Detroit. Now go find your own evidence.
Debate me: Economic decision theory should be adjusted to include higher-order preferences for non-normative purposes http://www.debate.org...

Do you really believe that? Or not? If you believe it, you should man up and defend it in a debate. -RoyLatham

There is no question that poverty leads to violence in the USA. Why might be open for debate, or perhaps should be. I don't buy the class war bottom line... I believe if the rich have less, then we all have less.

the question was asked of why poverty leads to violence. I found this card to answer.
"The condition of poverty may not be sufficient in itself to cause widespread con- flict, but these studies clearly show that poverty, more than any other factor, contributes to feelings of "alienation, exploitation, and dependency" and these feelings in turn contribute to a breakdown of social cohesion and to violent conflict."

I think this has a point, but I don't really think this is the full reason behind it

What is a card?

Poverty can lead to violence via despration.
However, are all violent acts caused by despraration? Hardly.
Further, just because one feels desparate, doesn't mean they are.
My work here is, finally, done.
