@Germlat,
Also, another perspective that not many people are aware of is that both Japan and Germany have high rates of poverty. I would never consider those people as lazy.

@cicerone imposter,
Some don't understand systems...some work very hard and are still poor.

Cuba is a godless commie country so no wonder it's near-bankrupt.
Japan is godless too, and the Krauts are solid boneheads..Smile

We all eat well don't we, and have a roof over our head and a TV and computer?
What more can we possibly want?


I don't know what kind of a fantasy Shangri-la you live in, Romeo, but there are millions of people who don't have a roof over their head, even in so-called industrialized countries in Europe and North America.

@Lustig Andrei,
In 2002 I was just out of jail (3 month vigilante rap), homeless, jobless, near penniless, ill and living rough in a tent in a wood, but was I disheartened?
Nah, I was too busy laughing at myself-
"Oh great " I thought" I've ended up as Bigfoot!"
But I soon got out and up, the trick is to not take life seriously..Smile

The JW's ought to run third-world fly-blown countries, they's soon get 'em to keep their flies zipped..Smile

@Romeo Fabulini,
Can you ever stay on topic, Romeo? That's one of the silliest non sequiturs I've seen.

In Boston alone, there are perhaps hundreds, maybe even thousands of individuals who are homeless and are living on the streets. At the foot of Beacon Hill, very near the Mass General Hospital, there has always been a cluster of homeless folks who live in large boxes, discarded in the trash.
At sunrise, they leave their boxes and travel to free food centers. At sun set, they go back to their boxes..

Why do they live like this? Maybe, they want to. Or maybe no one cares about them.

In the region of the New England Medical Center, many of the homeless ( and prostitutes)make their way into the hospital to use the restrooms to clean-up and refresh themselves. I don't think anyone in the Hospital cares either about the homeless folks, or that they use their bathrooms. But still, life goes on for these homeless people. I suspect that not only are these folks homeless, but that they are also hopeless.

Being hopeless is a dead end. Being homeless is not.

At night ( late at night) there is medical van on the Boston Common), that provides free medical care to the homeless. Thank God for these healthcare workers ( especially in the cold Boston winters ).

Think it through mate, the topic is 'Why the poor are poor', so if JW's ran the show they'd soon stop people having more babies than the land can support, it's not rocket science..Smile

Sure, because Jehovah's Witnesses like Southern Baptists never have sex outside marriage. Rolling Eyes

JWs are mostly concerned with running our own show. We cannot make the decisions for others. We all have free will, as you know.
