Inequality is often taken to be that bastard, the human forces that push people into a river they cannot navigate and where they drown. And I agree, taking on inequality is central to how we can produce a more just society. [ But so is making efforts to save people as they are drowning. We need both ? it is not either/or.
The culture of poverty analysis, despite its flaws, points to a third way to provide help. The third way to help is to teach people to swim. Then they can save themselves. Rather than focusing on the pathologies that make them flail in the water of inequality, fighting off attempts to save them, slipping deeper underwater, we can think about how we can help people to swim better. ] User:

They tend to think that what they have is enough. This thinking sort of become their culture for as long as they live. ] ] (More)
