of seeing and considering materialism and prosperity as greedy, extravagance, unnecessary, and evil, even going as far to indoctrinate and inculcate their children that any type of socioeconomic improvement is inherently evil?
It's like Aesop's fable of sour grapes. If they can't have it - they will justify and turn against those who do. They *could* have it if their mindsets changed but that's a lot to expect from most people who are raised and living in desperate circumstances.
This is very true. Such people oftentimes ENVY those who are doing better than they socioeconomically. They rationalize their particular life circumstance by saying that those are more successful and have better socioeconomic circumstances are greedy, wasteful, and extravagant. They WISH that they could lead a better life but use any excuse and avoid take responsbility to improve their lives.
Yes. Clearly having a better mindset will cause those entry-level jobs to finally call me back and interview me. That's the ticket.
Do you even read what you write?!
Having lived on both sides of the socioeconomic line, I can tell you the ones who were on the impoverished side were very depressed and anxious about their and their children's SURVIVAL. Let's face it, America looks down on the poor as ignorant and would like to believe anyone who is poor is there because they are lazy or stupid or both. Even government agencies have no compassion and their minions can say the most insulting and demeaning things to those seeking help. Yes, there are unscrupulous people on both ends of the line and sometimes a person is impoverished because of a unscrupulous person with more money or they may have made unwise choices. In order to keep their heads up some resort to putting other people down, rich or poor. It could be sour grapes, sure, but in these uncertain economic times always remember, "there, but by the grace of god, go I". It can happen to anyone so try to have compassion and understanding and be happy you are not in their shoes. Nobody wants to feel critIcised but who has the harder fight for survival the rich or the poor?
