            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 [read HERE].  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 @F-L-O-W.

If anyone is ever interested on talking about this with me on tape, contact Gary and I’ll walk you through the real war and that is the war of values, which poverty emerges from.

Mike"

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 imagined.

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 differently?
