Mayor Lori Lightfoot can dramatically reduce the crime in Chicago if she helps a few people to transcend their social environment. That means people who live in a socially Toxic environment should be given the support needed to physically move out of their home and neighborhood. Those who don't want to relocate will need the physical and emotional protection of an organization that will help them develop a new identity, and some new skills and habits.
The best long term way so stop the crime is to provide public school students a practical education. Not the antiquated competition based high stakes testing education. An education that will give working class students the cognitive skills, trade skills, and any other skills needed to prosper in a world of algorithms and artificial intelligence.
It takes a truly exceptional person to transcend his or her social environment and that we are shaped (and limited) by our backgrounds and by the thinking of our generation more than we know or are comfortable admitting, even to ourselves.
