Broken Windows has great take on the Friedman vs. France piece. Ever notice that these people who say things along the lines of, "Violence is the normal in (insert war-torn area here)," get to go home at the end of the day to suburbs, gated communties, buildings with security cards, etc.? Here's the thing; if one can get used to violence why are you so unwilling to live in a dangerous part of town? Conversely, if the term violence in a particular area has gone on so long as to make it the new normal, haven't we failed somewhere?
