Why do some people LOVE, even DEIFY socioeconomic poverty, deprivation, & LACK? What makes these people HIGHLY CONTENT with being impoverished, wondering where their next meal will come from, if they will have a roof over their heads, & pay even their simplest bills? Why do they only aspire to live a primitive, animal-like existence, living from hand to elbow?
Grace I would assume to say NO human being enjoys the choiceless disempowering humilating negatiory circumstances of poverty.
For some people they have a low start, financial literacy is not part of their family schemata nor their educational system, and/or they enter into accepting available (though dead end) jobs which leads to further unskilled jobs because they are just trying to get any/some money to keep their heads above water. Or for some reason they get a long run of not being valued by employers and therefore are not offered promotions which then means no increase in salary. Alternatively, they see how certain well paying cultures are (e.g.too toxic/violent) and avoid them which brings monetary loss yet brings peace which then also gets lost due to ongoing stress caused by being vulnerable in life due to loss of protection via loss of money. You have to bow your head and become subservient to people who are unpleasant/toxic just because they have greater wealth or authority by the nature of their position. Doesnt make sense on a personal level yet how the world works, it makes sense.
There are many INVERSE, NEGATIVE souls who do.....UNFORTUNATELY. There are THOSE who GLORIFY in being impoverished........If they weren't, they wouldn't knock those who are.....WEALTHY or AFFLUENT..........
Believe it or NOT, there are people who LIKE, even LOVE being in poverty(talking about the United States here). An analogy is that HELL is a dark, tormented place; however, there are people who anticipate hell..... the same goes w/poverty.
I lack a Lamborghini, and this primitive, animal-like existence is really wearing on me. Won't you buy one for me?
Dialing for dollars is calling for me. Think she'll buy me a color TV?
HELL to the....NO!
Walk....or TAKE THE SUBWAY- WORKS for me..............

middle, upper middle, and upper class parents wouldn't think of doing to their children in terms of their children's socioeconomic success, education, and future achievement?

From the knowledge-picture (originally shared by 'Did you know' on google+), we can see the job of archaeologists and paleontologists, to find out how present humans have evolved from nothing, and obtained such power. Then we know poverty for humans is always there, not human-made as some people...
