Poverty is the state of having little or no money and having few or no material possessions. Having general scarcity or a small and inadequate amount of things that are needed.

1 out of every 6 people in the world live in poverty and and the wealth divide is widening. 124 million people in 51 countries faced food crisis in 2017, says UN. Over 150 million kids in poor countries have stunted growth, largely due to malnutrition. 8 million Americans have slipped into poverty since May 2020 as federal aid has dried up.

Childre in Poverty Extreme Poverty is characterized by severe deprivation of basic human needs, including food, safe drinking water, sanitation facilities, health, shelter, education and information. International poverty line of $1.25/day (in 2005 prices), set by the World Bank. But using just money as a indicator of poverty is foolishly ignorant and extremely criminal. Living Wage.

The price of not doing anything to reduce poverty is far greater. The current levels of child poverty cost the U.S. between $800 billion and $1.1 trillion a year, due to lower productivity when poor children become adults and increased costs due to higher crime and poor health. Individual children also suffer, because they face lower educational achievement, maltreatment and other obstacles related to growing up poor. In the end, the panel says, the whole country pays the price. 40% of rural Americans struggle with routine medical bills, food and housing. And about half 49% say they could not afford to pay an unexpected $1,000 expense of any type. Overworked and underpaid. Overcharged for education and still undereducated. Can't afford a home and can't afford a family. Can't afford a doctor and can't afford healthy food.

Everything people need is here on earth. The problem is that resources are not being shared fairly and equally or managed effectively or efficiently. So the most important thing people need is education knowledge and information that would give people a better understanding of themselves and the world around them so that they would make better choices and better decisions that would be more logical and more intelligent, instead of being more selfish and more destructive, as a lot of people are now.

Humanitarian Aid is material and logistic assistance to people who need help. It is usually short-term help until the long-term help by the government and other institutions replaces it. Among the people in need are the homeless, refugees, and victims of natural disasters, wars, and famines. Humanitarian relief efforts are provided for humanitarian purposes and include natural disasters and man-made disasters. The primary objective of humanitarian aid is to save lives, alleviate suffering, and maintain human dignity. It may, therefore, be distinguished from development aid, which seeks to address the underlying socioeconomic factors which may have led to a crisis or emergency. There is a debate on linking humanitarian aid and development efforts, which was reinforced by the World Humanitarian Summit in 2016. However, the conflation is viewed critically by practitioners. Humanitarian aid is seen as "a fundamental expression of the universal value of solidarity between people and a moral imperative". Humanitarian aid can come from either local or international communities. In reaching out to international communities, the Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs of the United Nations is responsible for coordination responses to emergencies. It taps to the various members of Inter-Agency Standing Committee, whose members are responsible for providing emergency relief. The four UN entities that have primary roles in delivering humanitarian aid are United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), the United Nations Refugee Agency (UNHCR), the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) and the World Food Programme (WFP). According to The Overseas Development Institute, a London-based research establishment, whose findings were released in April 2009 in the paper "Providing aid in insecure environments: 2009 Update", the most lethal year for aid providers in the history of humanitarianism was 2008, in which 122 aid workers were murdered and 260 assaulted. The countries deemed least safe were Somalia and Afghanistan. In 2014, Humanitarian Outcomes reported that the countries with the highest incidents were: Afghanistan, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Central African Republic, South Sudan, Sudan, Syria, Pakistan, Somalia, Yemen and Kenya.

Marginalize is to relegate to a lower or outer edge, as of specific groups of people. Marginalization is a social process of being made marginal, especially as a group within the larger society. Marginal is just barely adequate or within a lower limit or minimal quality. Disenfranchise is to deprive someone of a right or privilege. Deprive someone of the right to vote.

It seems like governments and wealthy powerful people like to keep people in poverty and keep people starving and desperate so that they can use people and exploit people like a resource. Too many powerful people in the world don't consider humans to be humans. Humans to them are seen as a usable resource that is disposable. Poverty is a byproduct of corruption and ignorance. Poverty should not exist in any human civilization. The only two ways for poverty to exist is to criminally influence it or passively except it. You either have clear plans with clear goals to end poverty, or you have no conscience and no soul.

Ghetto is a part of a city in which members of a minority group live, especially because of social, legal, corruption or economic ignorance. Disparities.

Impoverished is being poor enough to need help from others. Destroyed financially. Make poor. Take away.

Indigent is someone who is poor and in need.

Relative Deprivation is the lack of resources to sustain the diet, lifestyle, activities and amenities that an individual or group are accustomed to or that are widely encouraged or approved in the society to which they belong. Measuring relative deprivation allows an objective comparison between the situation of the individual or group compared to the rest of society. Relative deprivation may also emphasize the individual experience of discontent when being deprived of something to which one believes oneself to be entitled, however emphasizing the perspective of the individual makes objective measurement problematic.

Disadvantaged are individuals or groups of people who face special problems such as physical or mental disability. Lack money or economic support. Are politically deemed to be without sufficient power or other means of influence.

Pauper is a very poor person. A recipient of government relief or public charity.

Pauperism is a term meaning poverty or generally the state of being poor, referring to all those who are need support and whose existence is dependent upon charitable assistance for a period of time.

Effects of poverty on childhood development seen in children as young as 5. Researchers have found that health inequities can be measured in children as young as 5 years old. The research contributes to a growing body of literature finding that children of color who are also poor face greater health inequities than their white counterparts.

Neighborhood disadvantage may be an environmental risk factor for brain development. Study suggests improving social and educational resources could alleviate risk. A new study suggests that certain neighborhoods - particularly those characterized by poverty and unemployment - may pose an environmental risk to the developing brains of children, impacting neurocognitive performance and even brain size.

Global Citizen is an annual music festival started in 2012 and organized by Global Poverty Project. In 2015, the organization announced that Coldplay lead vocalist Chris Martin would serve as the festival's curator for the next 15 years. It was founded by Ryan Gall and Hugh Evans. Gall said he was inspired by visiting Austin City Limits and seeing the branding on the stage, but wanting to replace the corporate branding with branding from charities.

"Just because a person is poor, that doesn't mean that the person doesn't have big dreams, or that their soul isn't rich, they're like everyone else, except poor people are victims of circumstance, which is another word for corruption." Circumstance is a condition in life that is influenced some event or activity. A set of facts that surround your situation.

Providing everyone in poverty with a free high quality education could end most poverty in 15 years, and completely end poverty in 30 years. People have the ability to learn how to solve their problems. But people need high quality knowledge and information to accomplish this. So people need to Read and Comprehend what they are reading. People will first start out by securing healthy food and and clean water. Then they will build healthy and clean temporary housing as they work on a new city near by. Then people will be employed to make the necessary products that everyone needs to live. As people become more educated, then they will be able to do more, like provide healthcare, keeping people safe, create currency, providing necessities and so on. Everyone will work because there will always be work to do. Maintenance and Responsibilities are numerous. But this only works when everyone has access to valuable knowledge and information. There is no other road and there is no other way, knowledge is our path, our future, our savior.

Poor people are very capable of living a beautiful life in harmony. But when the rich and powerful keep people in poverty from learning how to live in peace, then the poor can not escape the shackles of poverty. Everyone on the planet can have everything they need, but when too many people want more then they need, then people will continue to suffer and die. So not only do we need to fully educate the poor, more importantly, we need to fully educate the rich and powerful too.

Living has to be affordable, if not, then life is not affordable, and if life is not affordable that means that someone is stealing more then they need. The cost of living can't be more then what it costs life. If profit causes people to suffer and die, then that's not profit, that's murder, that's theft, that's just totally freaking stupid.

It's not a welfare state, it's an ignorant state. It's not mass immigration, it's mass discrimination. And it's not just discrimination against people, but discrimination against knowledge and reality. No one can fully understand the problems everyone's faces clearly enough without having access to the knowledge and information that explains the problems we all face. Free Money

It's not a social experiment when people are manipulated. Slow productivity or slow growth does not explain what productivity or growth is. Saying people are better off does not say what better off is. GDP is a flawed formula because it's not defined, only assumed. Politicians lie about foreign aid to win votes. Some charities lie about the impact of foreign aid to stay funded. Some aid workers lie to themselves about the impact of a project. Effective States.

America's Poverty

Poverty in America is Increasing in 2015 14.7 Million Children in America live under poverty. In the U.S., a baby is born into poverty every 32 seconds. And by the end of the day, 1,837 children will have been confirmed as being either abused or neglectedChildren's Defense The number of U.S. residents who are struggling to survive on just $2 a day has more than doubled since 1996, placing 1.5 million households and 3 million children in this desperate economic situation. Americans are living below the Poverty Line.

Distributive Justice concerns the nature of a socially just allocation of goods in a society. A society in which incidental inequalities in outcome do not arise would be considered a society guided by the principles of distributive justice. The concept includes the available quantities of goods, the process by which goods are to be distributed, and the resulting allocation of the goods to the members of the society.

Economic Inequality is the difference found in various measures of economic well-being among individuals in a group, among groups in a population, or among countries. Economic inequality is sometimes called income inequality, wealth inequality, or the wealth gap. Economists generally focus on economic disparity in three metrics: wealth, income, and consumption. The issue of economic inequality is relevant to notions of equity, equality of outcome, and equality of opportunity.

Nepotism is based on favoritism granted to relatives in various fields, including business, politics, entertainment, sports, religion and other activities.

Slum Tourism is a type of tourism that involves visiting impoverished areas. Slum tourism has been the subject of much controversy, with critics labeling the voyeuristic aspects of slum tourism as poverty porn.

Poverty Porn is defined as "any type of media, be it written, photographed or filmed, which exploits the poor's condition in order to generate the necessary sympathy for selling newspapers or increasing charitable donations or support for a given cause"

The Poverty Line - Living On One Dollar

Settlement Movement was a reformist social movement, beginning in the 1880s and peaking around the 1920s in England and the US, with a goal of getting the rich and poor in society to live more closely together in an interdependent community. Its main object was the establishment of "settlement houses" in poor urban areas, in which volunteer middle-class "settlement workers" would live, hoping to share knowledge and culture with, and alleviate the poverty of, their low-income neighbors. The "settlement houses" provided services such as daycare, education, and healthcare to improve the lives of the poor in these areas.

Educating the poor not only reduces the amount of Preventable Causes of Death, it also increases their potential and value.

"If the number one cause of death is ignorance, then the number one cure is knowledge."

"When there are no plans to improve things, things gradually get worse."

Beggars Can't Be Choosers means that people with very few options sometimes have to be content with what is offered. Take what you can get and be grateful. But never stop asking for more help, especially when you need it. Your situation is not your fault. And don't blame people for their lack of empathy or blame people for not giving more. Some people only give what they can.

Walls - Borders - Barriers

A wall is not just to keep people out, but to keep people in, like a prison or a zoo. There is no wall that would protect humans from themselves. You can't block out your own ignorance when you are the source of the ignorance. To build a wall is to seal in that ignorance. To stop the flow of information and knowledge is to stop yourself from learning, which will also stop you from progressing. The wall symbolizes ignorance in a physical form. But just having an open mind is not the same thing as having open borders. A border wall is a clear sign that people cannot communicate or use language effectively. Every wall built in history was a failure. When leaders are ignorant and corrupt they divide people so they can reduce the strength and power that people have. But it's the walls that are built in the minds of people that cause the most damage. When you are ignorant and can't use language to communicate effectively, then people attack with weapons instead of using words.

At the end of World War II, there were 7 border walls or fences in the world. By the time the Berlin Wall fell in 1989, there were 15. In 2016 there are at least 77 border walls or fences.

Border Barrier is a separation barrier that runs along an international border. (people go under the wall, people go over the wall, people go around the wall, or people just pay the guards to look the other way. That's because people are smart and leaders are dumb. Besides that, walls mostly stop good people who are in need, but the walls do not stop criminals.)

Separation Barrier is a barrier, wall or fence, constructed to limit the movement of people across a certain line or border, or to separate peoples or cultures. A separation barrier that runs along an internationally recognized border is known as a border barrier. Barrier is a structure or object that impedes free movement. Barricade.

Fence is a structure that encloses an area, typically outdoors, and is usually constructed from posts that are connected by boards, wire, rails or netting. A fence differs from a wall in not having a solid foundation along its whole length. Alternatives to fencing include a ditch (sometimes filled with water, forming a moat).

Spite Fence is a term used in U.S. property law to refer to an overly tall fence, structure in the nature of a fence, or a row of trees, bushes, or hedges, constructed or planted between adjacent lots by a property owner (with no legitimate purpose), who is annoyed with or wishes to annoy a neighbor, or who wishes to completely obstruct the view between lots. Several U.S. states and local governments have regulations to prohibit spite fences, or related regulations such as those establishing a maximum allowed height for fences. In the United Kingdom, the terms spite wall or blinder wall (as in, to blind the view of a neighbour) are more commonly used. An overly tall fence may not be considered a spite fence by a court if there is some other reason for the fence which requires the extra height. In one case, a man built a 13-foot (4.0 m) fence on his property, and his neighbor sued him. The man had put up a fence that tall because his neighbor kept throwing garbage over the old (shorter) fence. Since keeping garbage out of one's yard is a legitimate reason to have a fence, it was found not to be a spite fence. Several states in the United States have laws that prohibit planting a row of trees parallel to a property line, which exceed six to ten feet (1.8 to 3.0 m) in height, which block a neighbor's view or sunlight. The courts have ruled that a row of trees can be considered a "fence". Golf courses near residential communities will often have fences exceeding 20 ft (6.1 m) in height in order to prevent struck balls from flying out of the course and into the windshields of cars and windows of houses near the course. Such fences are not spite fences, and may actually be required. Outdoor arenas and amphitheatres also often use fences or other obstructions to prevent the viewing of their events by those who don't have tickets (which, although it may be unpopular with those whose free viewing is obstructed, is not necessarily spiteful). In civil-law countries, erecting a spite wall (or a spite house) is unequivocally prohibited because of the doctrine of abuse of rights: a right ends where abuse begins. This is mostly attributable to the fact that modern building regulations often prevent any construction likely to impinge on neighbours' views or privacy.

The hidden cost of building fences has major, sometimes deadly, effects on land and wildlife around the world that are rarely measured. Once a fence is built its effects are long lasting. Even after removal, “ghost fences” can live on, with species continuing to behave as if a fence were still present for generations.

Not All Walls are Bad. Boundaries are not that unusual in life. It's just how those boundaries are used that ends up being either good and beneficial or being bad and harmful. Relevance.

Boundary is the line or plane indicating the limit or extent of something. A line determining the limits of an area ot the greatest possible degree of something.

Wall is a structure that defines an area, carries a load, or provides shelter or security. There are many kinds of walls, including: Defensive walls in fortifications. Walls in buildings that form a fundamental part of the superstructure or separate interior rooms, sometimes for fire safety. Retaining Walls, which hold back dirt, stone, water, or noise sound. Walls that protect from oceans (seawalls) or rivers (levees). Permanent, solid fences. Border barriers between countries. Brick wall. Precast wall. Stone wall. Glass wall (only when most of the wall, in smaller amounts it is called a window). Doors are mobile walls on hinges which open to form a gateway. Dams.

Partition is the act of dividing parts, pieces, or sections by separating them and creating a boundary that divides or keeps apart. A vertical structure that divides or separates, like when a wall divides one room from another. Partition in anatomy is a structure that separates areas in an organism.

Blockade prevents access or progress. Prevent from happening or developing. Interrupt the normal function. Impede movement. Obstruct.

Open Borders is a manipulation technique used by corrupt people to scare people into thinking that there is no border control. If you have ever drove through Europe, you can travel from country to country just like driving your car from state to state in America, and you never have to stop and show your identification or worry about being detained. It's beautiful.

Open Border is a border that enables free movement of people (and often of goods) between jurisdictions with few or no restrictions on movement, that is lacking substantive border control. Open borders are the norm for borders between subdivisions within the boundaries of sovereign states.

205,000 vehicles cross the Texas - Mexico border everyday on just one U.S. border. There are around 11 Million undocumented immigrants in America as of 2017.

About 11.8 million people live in the U.S.-Mexico border area. On average, there are 700,000 to 850,000 new unauthorized migrants arriving annually by all modes of entry. An estimated 6.2 million (or 56 percent) of all unauthorized migrants are from Mexico. 2004, 12,338 trucks crossed the border daily, up 63 percent from FY 1994. In 2004, there was an average of 660,000 passenger crossings per day across 35 points of entry (POEs) on the 1,952-mile border between the United States and Mexico. Crossings by personal vehicles rose 43 percent between 1995 and 1999 and then fell 21 percent (to 191 million) by 2004. Almost 20 percent of passenger crossings into the United States from Mexico in 2004 were made on foot, while bus crossings only constituted 1.4 percent (3.4 million) of crossings from Mexico. In 2004 there were over 20 million pedestrian crossings in Texas alone. (Source: U.S. Bureau of Transportation Statistics) Of the approximately 11,000 Border Patrol agents, 89 percent work along the U.S.-Mexico border.

We Don't Need a Wall at the Border because we have radar, motion sensors, high resolution cameras, and thermal imaging systems to see at night, and we have hundreds of people monitoring several locations. You could have one integrated tower every few miles or so, which we already have in most places. But even then, we still need more communication, because this problem can't be solved with walls, camera's, or laws. It must be solved by working together.

If you are going to build a wall, the first wall you should build is a wall that protects you from your own ignorance. Be the gate keeper of your mind, be mindful of the thoughts that pass through your consciousness. Protect your inner self from negative thoughts. Negative thoughts must identify themselves and they must explain their reasons for being here. If your purpose is relevant and valuable, then you have permission to proceed. But you must check back with central control and communicate any changes or useful information that was learned during your visit. Every immune system needs symbiotic relationships, because if we don't work together, we die together. Environmental Monitoring.

Mexico–United States Barrier is a series of walls and fences along the Mexico–United States border aimed at preventing illegal crossings from Mexico into the United States. The barrier is not one contiguous structure, but a grouping of relatively short physical walls, secured in between with a "virtual fence" which includes a system of sensors and cameras monitored by the United States Border Patrol. As of January 2009, U.S. Customs and Border Protection reported that it had more than 580 miles (930 km) of barriers in place. The total length of the continental border is 1,954 miles (3,145 km).

List of Mexico–United States border crossings. There are 48 U.S.–Mexico border crossings, with 330 ports of entry where people can legally cross the Mexico–United States border. Several large border cities have multiple crossings, often including one that bypasses the center city and is designated for truck traffic. For planned crossings, see the Proposed changes section below. For former border crossings, see the Closed crossings section below. Details on each of the US ports of entry are provided using the links in the table.

Kansas - The Wall (Lyrics) (youtube) - I'm woven in a fantasy, I can't believe the things I see, The path that I have chosen now has led me to a wall, And with each passing day I feel a little more like something dear was lost, It rises now before me, A dark and silent barrier between, All I am, and all that I would ever want to be, It's just a travesty, Towering, marking off the boundaries my spirit would erase. Travesty is a false, absurd, or distorted representation of something.

Refugees - Evictions (land grabs)

Dingo Fence is a pest-exclusion fence that was built in Australia during the 1880s and finished in 1885, to keep dingoes out of the relatively fertile south-east part of the continent (where they had largely been exterminated) and protect the sheep flocks of southern Queensland. It is one of the longest structures in the world. It stretches 5,614 kilometres (3,488 mi) from Jimbour on the Darling Downs near Dalby through thousands of kilometres of arid land ending west of Eyre peninsula on cliffs of the Nullarbor Plain above the Great Australian Bight near Nundroo. It has been partly successful, though dingoes can still be found in parts of the southern states. Although the fence has helped reduce losses of sheep to predators, this has been countered by holes in fences found in the 1990s through which dingo offspring have passed and by increased pasture competition from rabbits and kangaroos.

Pest-Exclusion Fence is a barrier that is built to exclude certain types of animal pests from an enclosure. This may be to protect plants in horticulture, preserve grassland for grazing animals, separate species carrying diseases (vector species) from livestock, prevent troublesome species entering roadways, or to protect endemic species in nature reserves. These fences are not necessarily traditional wire barriers, but may also include barriers of sound, or smell.

"Poor people are living proof that people are good. Even when they have no access to a good education, they are still some of the nicest people on the planet.

This is the main reason why we must create a high quality education that is available to everyone. Imagine if everyone had a high quality education. Imagine?" I have, Here comes the Sun.

Peter Gabriel - Don't Give Up (ft. Kate Bush) (youtube)
In this proud land we grew up strong
We were wanted all along
I was taught to fight, taught to win
I never thought I could fail
No fight left or so it seems
I am a man whose dreams have all deserted
I've changed my face, I've changed my name
But no one wants you when you lose
Don't give up
'Cause you have friends
Don't give up
You're not beaten yet
Don't give up
I know you can make it good
Though I saw it all around
Never thought I could be affected
Thought that we'd be the last to go
It is so strange the way things turn
Drove the night toward my home
The place that I was born, on the lakeside
As daylight broke, I saw the earth
The trees had burned down to the ground
Don't give up
You still have us
Don't give up
We don't need much of anything
Don't give up
'Cause somewhere there's a place
Where we belong
Rest your head
You worry too much
It's going to be alright
When times get rough
You can fall back on us
Don't give up
Please don't give up
'Got to walk out of here
I can't take anymore
Going to stand on that bridge
Keep my eyes down below
Whatever may come
And whatever may go
That river's flowing
That river's flowing
Moved on to another town
Tried hard to settle down
For every job, so many men
So many men no-one needs
Don't give up
'Cause you have friends
Don't give up
You're not the only one
Don't give up
No reason to be ashamed
Don't give up
You still have us
Don't give up now
We're proud of who you are
Don't give up
You know it's never been easy
Don't give up
'Cause I believe there's the a place
There's a place where we belong.
