In J.D. Vance’s memoir Hillbilly Elegy, he uses his life story to critique the notion that economic insecurity is the root cause of the hardship his fellow hillbillies must endure. Rather, Vance argues that the very culture he claims to love is actually responsible for the social decay that he and millions of others have had to live in, and that hillbillies’ inability to recognize this has led to their political estrangement. To fully grasp the impact of hillbilly culture on the level of social decay that many hillbillies fall victim to, it is imperative to first have a firm grasp of the history of the Rust Belt and the current cycle of poverty.
