Democratic Sen. Daniel Patrick Moynihan wrote in 1965, “From the wild Irish slums of the nineteenth century Eastern seaboard to the riot-torn suburbs of Los Angeles, there is one unmistakable lesson in American history: A community that allows a large number of young men to grow up in broken families, dominated by women, never acquiring a stable relationship to male authority, never acquiring any rational expectations about the future — that community asks for and gets chaos. In such a society crime, violence, unrest, unrestrained lashing out at the whole social structure — these are not only to be expected, they are virtually inevitable.” This is not a racial issue, it is a human issue. Irish slums in the 1800s had circumstances and events similar to Ferguson.
