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.
Yes. The worst victims of poverty r the children. I am glad u were able 2 get your life back on track because most are not that lucky. If people would take care of their little guys/gals, we might not have so many screwed up adults doing crazy stuff
Denial and ignorance. My biggest saving grace was that I learned to read at an early age and I am a voracious reader still. The best cure for anything is education in my mind. But you have to want to be educated.
The people I grew up with glorified poverty. They said poor folks will do better in the next life, while many rich folks would go to hell. Example: the parable of Lazarus and the rich man: https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Luke+...
"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.
Austinstar - your story is harrowing. I'm REAL glad you were able to use education to rise above your circumstances! In my case, my nervous disorder makes my job situation difficult, so choosing a career is not a simple matter.
What nervous disorder? Isn't there a pill for that? Sheesh, I have to take 2 handfuls of pills these days just to keep on living. Keep trying, you have to hit on the right combination.
Austinstar - I tried the pill route when I was in Seattle, with disastrous results, the least of which they made me FAT. Thank goodness I now live in a much mellower place! Menopause is also helping me towards that end - YAY!
