Poverty @F-L-O-W

            How taking a different perspective can make all the difference

Poverty, Upgraded a Bit, Continues Despite the War
 Mr. Rector fails to take into consideration that the goalposts have been moved.

The above is a recent headline from the Wall Street Journal
].  It is a collection of responses from readers in regards to the
original article.  It is well worth reading because it gives a good
overview of people’s beliefs on poverty.

Mike shared this with his Inner Circle
and tossed out this challenge:

"When you read this… it seems ok, but then you realize how deeply rooted this
is @BS [Blank Slate].

The war on poverty is a set of symptoms that emerge @BS, but would disappear

If anyone is ever interested on talking about this with me on tape, contact

and I’ll walk you through the real war and that is the war of values, which
poverty emerges from.


The question:

"Why does the war on poverty as a set of symptoms which
emerge @Blank Slate suddenly disappear @F-L-O-W?"

The New York Times posted an article titled "The
Inequality Problem
".  The author must have read Mike’s book, @F-L-O-W:
because he points out that we need to look at inequality differently.  It
is a very good view point and well worth the read.

When you look at the world through a different lens you see things you never saw
before and you gain insights into life and living that you may never have

Another Perspective:

The following is an excerpt from  another Wall Street
Journal article on the income inequality and is titled

"How to Fight Income Inequality: Get Married"

"The U.S. is steadily separating into a two-caste system with
marriage and education as the dividing line. In the high-income third of the
population, children are raised by married parents with a college education; in
the bottom-income third, children are raised by single parents with a
high-school diploma or less.

One of the differences between the haves and the have-nots is
that the haves tend to marry and give birth, in that order. The have-nots tend
to have babies and remain unmarried. Marriage makes a difference. Heritage
reports that among white married couples, the poverty rate in 2009 was just
3.2%; for white non-married families, the rate was 22%. Among black married
couples, the poverty rate was only 7%, but the rate for non-married black
families was 35.6%."

What are your thoughts on this two-caste system? 
Does it really exist?  What solutions would you offer?  Are you
aware that all previous world dominating societies crashed partly due to
this inequality?  Isn’t it time we begin to look at the situation
