    To all Conservatives out there, what are the 10 ways that the Great Society which was

    implemented by the late President Lyndon B.Johnson in the sixties created a dependency and entitlement culture, seeing the goverment as a source of rescue and uplifting, instead of seeing oneself as the main protagonist in one's socioeconomic improvement?

    We cannot, it seems, help but wonder if (entirely unintentionally as Johnson believed that if the playing field was leveled that people would then line up to play the game) Great Society programming of the 1960s has not contributed to generational poverty and to generational failure of some to take responsibility for their lives and the lives of their children.

    And, we also cannot help but wonder if programs designed for temporary relief from what in 1964 were deep social and cultural barriers for some to upward socio-economic mobility have become permanent "entitlements" which do more harm than good.
