It takes a village?

I’m not sure how we migrated from two parents wanting to raise a child, to the governmental welfare system doing it?  The original mindset was to offer a shoulder to lean on when child rearing in African villages that honored the institution of family.  In our western civilization, we have turned it into entitlement; leaning on subsidy to provide money for raising children, schools to feed the kids and negating that responsibility was always meant to offer parents a relationship with their children built upon safety and trust.  A village now is just a usurping of that parental role.
