“You use the word “extreme capitalism,” as if we even live in a capitalist society. We have over $20 trillion in public debt. An extreme capitalist society wouldn’t allow government to have that big a role in society.”

Well Said! In extreme Capitalism there would be no Company taxes at all and minimal income tax applied at a flat rate at 20% or less. Welfare would come only from Charities, and no-one would be entitled to get paid for doing nothing. There would be problems for the weakest members of such a society, but most would be better off, spending their own money better than the Government spends it for them now.

You are 100% correct that “Nothing can replace having an intact self-reliant family who are able to instil proper values and provide stability to a child during development.” Even today, the best predictor of success for an individual is not Colour, Class or Creed; it is whether he or she comes from a functioning family with a mother and a father to care for them, and provide role models for them.

Ask a Policeman who are the most at-risk kids today, and they will tell you: “The children of a solo mum, with a live-in boyfriend.”
