The poverty of our century is unlike that of any other. It is not,as poverty
was before,the result of natural scarcity,but of a set of priorities imposed
upon the rest of the world by the rich. Consequently, the modern  poor are
not pitied... but written off as trash. The twentieth century consumer
economy has produced the first culture for which a begger is a reminder of
nothing.
