Thank you Rev Liz for that interpretation of Jesus' statement that " the poor will always be with you" -- As a UCC pastor I have always given that passage the same weight as you do , that as long as we do not alter our society and deal with poverty at the systemic level, then the poor will always be poor. A couple of handouts are not the way to go.

Stacey (she/her)
03:37:20
Thank you for all you do. I know that you know how hard (most) "government workers" TRY to help folks, but after a few years of being overworked, underpaid and under-appreciated, they don't have the strength to treat needy people with kindness. Everyone is beaten down by the system.I believe that it was NOT like this in America, maybe 30 years ago, when there were perhaps only 5% of the population living below the poverty line, and there was respect for public service ("noblesse oblige"). NOW there are almost 12% of people here living below the poverty line-see this article: "The poverty rate among American citizens is 11.3%, below the 11.8% poverty rate among everyone living in the United States”. NO MORE BILLIONAIRES.

Linda Chapman
03:53:21
When I worked for the War on Poverty, with a local of George Wylie's National Welfare Rights Organization, it was impossible for a family on AFDC to be homeless. The law required the caseworkers to lease housing for each family; the cash grant was for food, utilities and certain expenses. The law, under Nixon, changed to cash grants ("flat grant" opposed by NWRO). The law can be changed back. Linda Chapman licwa@yahoo.com

@Linda, thanks to Clinton, that all changed.

@Stacey, regarding government workers losing heart… we’ve learned to recognize that it’s not so much “burn out” as moral injury— hurts one’s soul to deal with the constant inequities and resultant pain

I recommend Riane Eisler’s work on Partnerism for its inclusion of all the care-givers in our economic well-being picture www.partnerism.org
Also talking about Partnerism moves us beyond the baggage of capitalism/socialism… we need to recognize the Real Wealth of Nations — not represented in the GDP.
