• Poverty is not fate

    “‎Poverty is not fate, it is a condition; it is not a misfortune, it is an injustice. It is the result of social structures and mental and cultural categories, it is linked to the way in which society has been built, in its various manifestations.” — Gustavo Gutiérrez (via anarcho-queer) (Source: mikeqj, via dendroica)

  • Poverty as a Destabilizing Strategy.

    Thought today: We talk of poverty being limiting, and constraining one’s ability to capitalize on one’s human potential, but we never discuss the intentional bestowing of poverty by those in a dominant class or position on those who the group feels is destabilizing to their continued control.
