The Centre for Social Justice – Knife and gun crime

A moving article from Philippa Stroud at the Centre for Social Justice, laying out the root causes of social breakdown and explaining the possibilities for reversal:

Society will always have a criminal element – those for whom it doesn’t matter what you do, they will decide to be aggressive and violent. But the level that we have now and that is spilling over into every community and every school is being driven by something else. If you stop for long enough and actually listen to those who are kicking the cans, joining the gangs and shooting up they will speak to you of broken families, of childhood abuse and of a longing to belong.
