  •  Why do we have to keep doing this over (5+ / 0-)

    and over?  Because, in addition to the poor, we will also always have with us the clueless.

    You wouldn't think that clueless humans can cause so much mischief.  But, to make up for their deficits, the clueless seem to be blessed with verbal talents, which let them be deceptive without missing a beat.

    Deception seems to be a basic instinct.  Even the killdeer practices it.

      over and over because collective memory is brief and flawed. Once an oppression is lifted, even if only in part, the formerly oppressed begin to forget the intensity their former misery. Their children know of the misery only from their parents' recollections. Their grandchildren think their recollections are mistaken or irrelevant. And here we are. Again.

      "The only thing we have to fear is fear itself."........ "The test of our progress is not whether we add more to the abundance of those who have much; it is whether we provide enough for those who have too little." (yeah, same guy.)
