Liberal elites' secret weapon is conservative family values

Timothy P. Carney, Washington Examiner

Marriage and two-parent households are crucial to success in life. Marriage, in fact, is one of the best anti-poverty tools in existence. Those who personally hold the liberal attitudes preached (but not practiced) by the elites are more likely to veer from the traditional family model. And those people, disproportionately in the working class, are less likely to rise through the ranks. Cultural liberalism is class warfare waged by the wealthy against the poor and working class. The privilege of the elite mostly comprises the norms, the models, and the community that support and guide people toward marriage and family. And that's one privilege too many elites would sooner keep to themselves.
