Letters by a modern St. Ferdinand III about cults

Plenty of cults exist - every cult has its 'religious dogma', its idols, its 'prophets', its 'science', its 'proof' and its intolerant liturgy of demands.  Cults everywhere:  Islam, the State, the cult of Gay and Queer, Marxism, Darwin and Evolution, 'Science', Globaloneywarming, Changing Climate, Abortion....a nice variety for the human-hater, amoral, anti-rationalist to choose from.  It is so much fun mocking them isn't it ?

Lies about poverty - creating a dependency cult which will vote for more of the same

Government lies about poverty are both shrill and contra-reality

by StFerdIII

 

In actual terms there is very little poverty in the Western world. Perhaps 5-10% of the population might be 'poor' and there are many reasons, mainly cultural, attitudinal, environmental, and personal; for that poverty. In the main culture is King. You want to be poor, or 'milk' the system, then so be it. You will find yourself at the bottom of the societal ladder. There is no 'system of oppression' or 'anti-human machine' at work, to keep you impoverished. Outside of disability, bad accidents or mental health issues; most of what is termed poverty, is due to individual choice, bad decisions, a corrupted life-style, drugs, alcohol, and in many cases, a malevolent calculation that feeding off of tax-payers is more profitable, than finding a lower income job.

Understanding Poverty in the United States: Surprising Facts About America’s Poor” (9/13/2011). Eighty percent of American poor households have air conditioning. Nearly three-fourths have a car or truck, and 31 percent have two or more. Almost two-thirds have cable or satellite TV. Half have one or more computers. Forty-two percent own their homes. The average poor American has more living space than the typical non-poor person in Sweden, France and the U.K. Ninety-six percent of poor parents stated that their children were never hungry because they could not afford food. The bottom line is that there is little or no material poverty in the U.S.” [Source]

Since the 1950s and the advent of robust international trade, vibrant job creation, new industrial and technological applications, and rising incomes at all levels, poverty has collapsed. The surest way out of poverty is to receive at least a solid education from high-school, marry and remain married, and eschew the culture of bad choices, habits and addictions. Hard work, and starting at the bottom are also necessary. Of course we should help those in need – but not entrench them in a cycle of dependency, nor incentivize people to defraud the system.

 In the modern political-economy poverty is always redefined to suit the needs of government and the poor industry which feeds off of the lies around poverty. Like inflation, unemployment, gdp, or any other government measure, poverty is simply a tool to be used to justify whatever the state wants you to follow and believe in. In the case of poverty, the endless expansion of government, in the name of compassion, is the unholy objective.
