this is kind of dumb..if there are no profits where do you get the money to help people....making everyone poor doesn't actually help the poor in any way

lol, people tend to not realize that the government is run by the cooperate class. to put people before profit's is like asking for them to commit suicide. the only way thing's change is when it's done violently.

 

People say violence is never an answer, I say its and effective and permanent solution to the problem because when someone throws the first punch, it show's that it is a serious problem.

Oh please grow up.  India, Russia, the Philippines, Poland, Czechoslovakia, Romania, and a slew of other countries all had essentially non-violent revolutions since World War II.  So, too, did the American South in the form of the civil rights movement.  Revolutionary violence is an adolescent fantasy.

says the person who's trying to change the way corporate America act's. you stick to your picketing and rallying and ill stick to my underground and anti-government fighting, lol.

(btw guy's, im not a terrorist or a freedom fighter, im just some guy with enough freedom and time to have a backbone and say something that people like but don't have the backbone to say it IRL.)

Secondly, Revolutionary Violence isn't a fantasy, its a very real thing that occurs all over the world from time to time. such example's would be the French Revolution, the American revolution and the civil war. what did they do to achieve their goals in all of these? they fought and they fought very violently. if you think it's some schoolboy's or angsty adolescent's dream then you need a reality check.

Well, that's nice.  I'm happy for you.  

Unfortunately, for you, this gallery is devoted to non-violence and non-violent change, and I won't permit your posting this bullshit in my gallery.  :banned:

As for backbone, asshole, I'd say people like Aung San Suu Kyi, Vaclev Havel, Martin Luther King, and Mahatma Gandhi -- who faced down the purveyors of violence and brought about lasting peaceful change in their societies -- have and had a lot more backbone than some jerk on deviantArt who hides behind internet anonymity.  Yeah, not doubt, you're a real tough guy.

Especially since there are differences in child poverty rates in different countries (Finland being lowest, US being 2nd lowest to Romania).

You meant to say, "Finland being the lowest; the US second highest, behind only Romania."  Here's a link for people to see the rates of child poverty in 35 developed countries: www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/w…

Oops. Yes, that was what I meant and that was exactly where I found that (after watching a show about Finland that said about it being the lowest.)

Sadly, while there is no truer statement than this, you have the naysayers who blame the parents for being lazy or their mothers for being sluts incapable of putting an aspirin between their knees - without addressing the problems of minimum wage, women's bodily autonomy being taken from them, the failure of trickle down economics, and politicians owned by corporate America - so they declare there are no real answers so they don't have to DO anything while children go hungry - aside putting them to work in their own schools as unpaid labor while they themselves are powerless to do anything.  So convenient...

Sadly, the poverty stereotypes fail to acknowledge that the majority of those in poverty are working poor (often people who have multiple part time jobs at that), elderly, and disabled. It's much easier to dismiss the problem when you make it into a bad personal choice. But that characterization dismisses the real and complex issues.

Exactly.  I often times believe those stereotypes are propagated by the rich so the general populace won't demand change.  But the reality is that the working poor have had a steadily increasing production rate, while their pay stagnates or goes down by union busting politicians.  And its now no longer the working poor, but the middle class.  College is an excellent example.  Colleges have employed cost cutting measure for profit, but they continue to charge exorbitant rates that climb unrealistically every year, while there are no jobs waiting for those with the student loans to pay them off.  College degrees are becoming unattainable to anyone not in the 1%, and the jobs for them are usually reliant upon who you know.  My sister has a master's degree and a large amount of experience in her field, but someone with virtually no experience was chosen over her - and she's not the only example I've found.  She'd work as hard as anyone - if only she had the chance.  Lazy, she is certainly NOT.
