What causes some people in America wanting to live in socioeconomic conditions that are


clearly detrimental to them?What makes people rationalize the positivity of impoverishment & being poor where there's no advantages nor benefits living in an environment of want,struggle, & scarcity?Give logical & analytical answers.Some purport being happy, living in substandard conditions w/poor nutrition, little or no medical care, &/or opportunities as far as developing themselves academically and/or intellectually goes. They are oblivious to the fact that poverty & being poor are aberrant socioeconomic pathologies that overall impairs people.

    Austin, I wonder about this also. There are people who actually glorify being poor & its pathologies. They purport that their life was "so rich." Either they possess inverse logic or they are in............DEEP DENIAL.

    "A mind is a terrible thing to waste!" This is poverty of the mind. Even rich people suffer from this. My father often told me that education is the ONLY thing that cannot be taken away from you. He was right.
