Subsidized Illegitimacy

Charles Krauthammer, Washington Post, November 19, 1993.


In fact, the idea I proposed is not at all original. I was merely echoing Charles Murray, who in his book, “Losing Ground,” offered the cold turkey approach as a “thought experiment.” That was a decade ago. Two weeks ago in the Wall Street Journal, the national illegitimacy numbers having become dramatically worse, Murray dropped the “experiment” part and proposed it as policy.
