Moon, Steve, everyone....

Thanks! Let me do some heavy lifting on these replies and get back. I would like to follow this down the rabbit hole.

A point of clarification, Theodore Dalrymple is a British Psychiatrist who works with criminals in prison and the poor. You can google up some quality essays. I lumped him into a paragraph with both viewpoints. I found his essay recently and it put me at a tipping point on this issue philosophic.

For your consideration...

Again thanks. The Fool has proven over time to be a great place to ask a foolish question and get a Socratic answer. Allow me to reflect and later reengage.
