We are really poor
One day a rich man took his son to a village to show him people that are
poor. They stay in a small house for one day and one night when they were
coming back father asked (what is your idea about the trip?)
The boy answered: (It was very good)
The father asked:(Was their life attractive you?)
The boy answered: (I think ……)
The father asked: (What did you learn on this trip?)
The boy thought and said quietly: (I understand that we have the swimming
pool in our yard, but they have a river. We have one dog and they have four
dogs. We have decorative bellows in our yard and they have stars.)
So we are really poor.
Poverty is a kind of economical syndrome that most people are involved in
it. Poverty means indigence and lack of obedience for lashing up our needs
such as food and clothes . Concerning the standards of qualitative of living
poverty is not the same in different societies. For example in most African
countries when a man can’t offered the family he is poor, But it is not the
same in European countries , so economists assign a line for poverty that is
different in various societies.
Most social and economic science’s scholars accept this view that poverty
had not existed at first and were involved in farming and hunting ( about
3500 years A.D )
Little by little the development of production devices and fighting between
clans and people arose another figure of society named “ slavery”. In that
time few of men ruled over others and made profits of their wages .In that
period appeared initial form of generation. Gradually the other form the
production arose named “agriculture” .in that time owners of fields made a
lot of people work for them just for little fees.
In the next period the owners changed into capitalists. Workers worked
factories with a little fees. They plundered workers because of power that
they had ( police and courts) and added to their wealth.
The workers would become poorer than before. Of course workers could get
their rights (partly) by special laws which were legislated for supporting
them, but poverty existed yet because some of the rich people had the
government in their hands .
In other words poverty comes in a society in which we have two groups .on
one side the governors and wealthy people who utilize the most from the
work of people and on the other side there are poor people. Consequently
poverty is the result of “ classified society “ which means rich and poor
Therefore one of the basic ways for eradiating poverty is increasing people
‘s knowledge about their rights and how they can earn them.
