I think its great to start with such an compelling example as it gives a lot of insights into vicious circles of poverty. Fair legislation is important but useless if it doesn´t go along with fair access to enforce legislation.
Its unclear the extent to which the story in the book is true or non-fiction. Is it actually based on true events? Secondly I thought your conclusions at the end about "liberty, life, freedom" etc were a bit unrelated to the story. There is no direct line of reasoning to these conclusions that I can see.
