1. Sad to say, the reason poverty is ignored is easy to understand.

The Robber Barons who own our society and buy themselves the best little government they can afford, profit from poverty.

It makes me furious, but the Corporate-owned media isn't going to tell people about it, and many people either can't afford an internet connection, don't have good enough reading and comprehension skills to be able to study what is going on and thus mount an effective challenge to our overlords, or they are working multiple jobs in order to barely survive, and time to study what is going on, let alone do anything to campaign against it, is a luxury that is not available to them.

I know conspiracy theorists are laughed at...but, it does feel like a kind of concerted campaign to keep the rest of us prone, with the boots of the 1% on our necks.

On the other hand, you prolly left off the smiley because you figured we would all get where you are coming from.

I wish I knew how to turn everything around, and get the majority of us to WTFU. My guess is that one of the many tasks we need to take in is to take back the public airwaves from the Corporate-owned propaganda mongers.

The story you posted is classic of how the Robber Barons respond to any kind of problem: jail the poor, no matter what.
