Do you know of Micheal Harrington? Well, he was an political activist in the middle of the 20th century(and one of Nixon's political enemies). In the the book that earned him a place in US political history, he made a few very important points on this subject:
1. In Harrington's time canvassing the states, he found that those in extreme poverty almost always barely made it by. Their living conditions were incredibly poor, as was their health due to what they ate. This brings up what little we know about human nature: That, given poor conditions(and even good ones), human beings will almost always try to better their lives.
2. Harrington also found that those in extreme poverty were proud and nearly always searching for work - or better work, depending upon their employment status.
again...then explain why there are trailer parks and housing projects full of people who have never worked a day in their life2. Harrington also found that those in extreme poverty were proud and nearly always searching for work - or better work, depending upon their employment status.
Others, such as various economic crises, play a role as well.
But this isn't about class poverty and american economic history, it's about what to do now. And that "what" is not to use fear of death as a tool for motivation.
well, that was your strawman, if you don't think it's valid...stop arguing with yourself over it.And that "what" is not to use fear of death as a tool for motivation.
Unless you believe a person can survive without food, I don't believe that was a straw man.well, that was your strawman, if you don't think it's valid...stop arguing with yourself over it.
another lame excuse. I attended one of the poorest rural high schools in one of the poorest counties in my state and that didn't stop me from getting a college educationthe quality of the high school education as a result of location,
again....scholarships and grants for low income people make this just another lame excusequality of the college education as a result of cost,
and why do they flee? could it be because the oh so noble poor have turned urban areas into ****holes?the flight of the middle class(employers included) from urban areas
why would hard working people who are trying to better themselves do drugs?the increased influence of drugs in urban areas.
no, I don't...since it is mostly nothing but one lame excuse after anotherBut I don't think you need the premise of the class poverty argument explained to you.
maybe you need to look up the definition of strawman. I never said a person could live without food, and you were the one who brought the issue up and started arguing against it.Unless you believe a person can survive without food, I don't believe that was a straw man.
