Poverty

by willbonds

Poverty is a word that seems constantly with us. To the truly concerned, the poor are the targets of policy efforts and volunteer work. To the sound-byte-driven, vote-attracting politician, the poor are either a responsibility that must have our attention (and our pity) or a constant drain on public funds, that should rise up  into the middle class on their own accord. All of these are surface treatments for most of us.
