MAYBE IT’S TIME TO START A CONVERSATION WITH HUMANISTS!“…it’s time to start having conversations about how alternative means aren’t a choice for those who come from poverty. We must acknowledge what it means to make space for people who actually need free food or things out of dumpsters, who participate in capitalism because they’ve got a kid at home and they are the only provider. Additionally, we need to shed light on the fact that many people who grew up wanting for more space and access to foods that weren’t available to them don’t understand the glossy pamphlets offering a simpler life.
Because, let me tell you, there is nothing simple about being poor.”
Do you agree that poverty is not so much about having less but feeling less? Do you know what it’s like to be poor and have seen ‘poor’. I think we need to correct the perceptions we have created about poverty. It’s not ‘us’ and ‘them’ – it’s all of us. We are ONE! And then there is this! Is it exploitation or survival?
