Default Define Poverty...


Thanks for asking.

The question shouldn't be "What do I think needs to be done to eradicate poverty".

It Should be... "Do I think Anything should be done to eradicate poverty?"

See the difference?

The first version Assumes we should do something to eradicate poverty.
The second question asks if we should do something.

Poverty. Poor. Needy. They are all generic terms used by do-gooder groups to garner support/money from other people.

You want to eradicate Poverty? First define what Poverty is. Define what Poor is? Define needy?

I'll add nothing else until you have those definitions. But will leave with this... you do not help anyone by stealing from productive people and giving it to unproductive people, or people who have shown no ability to handle/manage what they earn, let alone what they are given.
