Communism - UN defines poverty
J.F. Beck over at R W D B links to an ABC news article on a UN "poverty" report
He quotes the abc article
The report defines poverty as having an income below 50 per cent of the national median.
Apparently now, poverty is no longer meant to mean that you cannot get the necessities in life, it now means not having as much stuff as everyone else.
It occurs to me that this is a very communist way of thinking about things, as the only way to eradicate this kind of poverty would be a communistic model.
