Human nature, regardless of time, income, circumstance, is a given. Neither worse nor better then. Force people to live in poverty and some of them will behave badly.
Allow others to benefit through birth, from the best life can offer and the sense of entitlement can cause them to behave even worse

An interesting insight into the conditions of the poor - looking at lodging houses, workhouses, businesses & the like through reports (I think it was for a newspaper) of the time. Well written. Very enjoyable

If you like Mayhew (which I do) it's a great compilation. I had never heard of James Greenwood and he is a wonderful discovery for me.
