The poor and disadvantaged

Standard

There’s a lot to a name.

The signifier drives the belief, and we are shaped by our beliefs, right or wrong. We make decisions based on what we believe. If we believe we are poor and disadvantaged, then we will be.

Instead of “poverty” and “disadvantage” being conditions, they become states of being. The descriptors become an ontological trap for both the agent and the subject.

Assumptions (born of the chosen adjectives) obscure individuality.
