A Poor’s Point Of View...

The shepherd’s Daughter

Many ones have tried to analyze the world’s most devastating crisis… Experts, politicians, journalists… but what about the poor people, which form more than 90% of the earth’s population?
A poor in these days maybe smiling more than the whales of Wall Street and the sharks of the European bourse… he is not investing with his millions of dollars, not because he fears the markets, but because all what he has is 10 dollars (and even surely less) to live during the day with his family!
He is not going to lose, because he has nothing…
It is not a big difference to him if the Euro-Dollar exchange is going up or down… also he knows very well how to starve many days, and just live on the bread and some olives…
What a huge difference!
Some people are crying now for losing some millions of dollars, just some… and they still have too much… and others cried there life more than enough, until they have no more tears…
The entire actual crisis is about pushing every government to pay them back from our money; because they really need help, and it is impossible to leave they go down… the governments have to defend the world’s money system!
Yes! They will pay them from taxes!
Taxes system, which is made to take from everyone, the very rich and the very poor, to give to the entire nation, will be used to help the rich!!
We didn’t ever see the governments that exited to help the poor ones???
Can we ask why? Or our question is just as important as “how much we have”?
What a real joke?
What is this system? How can it be that good, and he leaves the world’s treasures in the hands of less than 5% of the earth’s population?
Where were they when every poor family was starving? I’m sure they were eating their caviar and smoking their pipes, all from the interest rates everyone is paying them because he does not have enough cash…

Yes! They never thought about how I do feel, but I’m not happy because they are passing in this situation, and I’m not surely asking for revenge… I will not hide that I have a strange feeling in my heart…
They will be okay, I know it… they will adapt just like every human being…
Yet, I’m always wondering about the difference between someone who has one million dollars and another who has one billion! Will they drive two cars in the same time? Will they wear two jackets at the same moment? Will they watch two televisions in the same second?
My life is surely hard, but I live in honor, and I’m not that stressed about the bourses… I just keep walking and smiling…
