Hello fellow world zobopians!  I haven’t posted in a while because I didn’t think I had anything important to say…until now.

The War on Poverty is a War on Poor People

The war on poverty never intended to be a war at all.  It was mostly a painfully timid and overly self-conscious assault on the consequences of human misery.  The war on poverty was [and probably still is] a vehicle for the perpetuation of the view that poverty was traceable to individual shortcomings on the part of poor people.  People are poor because they have no money or power to negotiate with.

When the poor eat the rich, what will rich people taste like?

Until neXt time…
