Things I have noticed about society

Every country no matter how rich will have a small group of people who's rich and a small group of people who are poor. Why is that? It's almost like the ying and yang concept. There must be rich and poor people no matter what. Why do you think that is?

Capitalism is built on exploiting a pool of people at the bottom who are paid low wages and are not able to garner enough resources to move out of being low income or in poverty.

Almost all countries have a small group of rich people and a very large group of poor people.

If there were no poor, how would you know you were rich?

What [R3] said

by Anonymousreply 602/10/2013

In my country the population split is 1% rich, 10% middle class and the rest are dirt poor.

One thing I have noticed is that the so-called poor in America who live in trailers filled with every kind of appliance and have two or more cars would be considered middle class in most other countries.

Agree, R7. I'm American and my family were considered at the poverty level. We still managed to have two computers, a wardrobe full of clothes for every member of the household, major appliances, air conditioning, internet connection etc.

Apparently society knows what's good for its people even before they are born.

Have you never heard of hunter-gatherer societies, OP?

They neither accumulate nor unevenly distribute wealth.

Are you 12 years old OP?

by Anonymousreply 1102/10/2013

Well, OP may sound innocent, but it doesn't have to be this way. It is totally artificial, just like everything else in society. It's that way because society is made that way, OP. And there are more poor people than you think.

OP has never been to Mexico. Or any 3rd world country for that matter. Which is like 3/4 of the world.

Some people work; others leech.

Thank you, R11, my thoughts exactly.

What the fuck, OP?

by Anonymousreply 1602/10/2013

YIN and yang, dear.

You're referring to the eternal battle between the proletariat and the bourgeoisie, OP. Basically what R3 said is, and will forever be correct as long as capitalism exists.
