The Immortal nature of Poverty

When we take a look at all of the civilizations that have existed throughout history, we will see that they all had at least one thing in common: they all had a group of people in poverty.

In our current society, many governments, social groups & individuals hold the belief that we as a society can eliminate poverty by taking on new initiatives such as better housing accommodations, better welfare rates & so forth for people in this situation.

However, is it possible to truly eliminate poverty?

What if it turns out that poverty is a necessity in the creation of civilization by humans?

At the end of the day, many humans are selfish when it comes to helping others in need – most people will only assist others when there is some kind of benefit they receive in return. If this situation is the reality of our world, then we will need to acknowledge that the concept of poverty is a part of human society.

If we cannot eliminate poverty, we can help reduce hardships by helping the poor within our own means. Even the smallest contributions might be enough to help someone in the largest of ways.

If poverty is truly immortal, our acts of kindness should also meet this immortality in kind. We can prove that our love of humanity is just as immortal as this unfortunate byproduct of society.

Thanks for reading.

  1. It’s not. Immortal. At least I’m not willing to believe that.
    And the benefit you get from helping others is some kind of energy or happiness that you will share. Always.

    1. Maybe you’re right Katinka, it might be that poverty is something that can truly be taken away. Maybe the happiness we receive from helping others out will fully overcome poverty.
