title Darkness Before Dawn
description Vintage educational film about "the nationwide harvest of violence and human waste" from juvenile delinquency. It was being "fought with old and inadequate ideas" and this new and improved idea was a Jewish summer camp for boys. Case study "Bobby's" emotional problems are identified by a psychiatrist in a loud suit, then solved simply by providing his family with a temp homemaker from the Pride Of Judea charity. The recent lecture on brain science and delinquency revealed that camps and group interventions make the problem worse, as boys gang up and teach each other more criminal behaviours.
