“So-called charity, with its implicit assumptions of high and low, is no remedy to injustice, but its willing accomplice. Charity allows the privileged the opportunity to buy the silence of their consciences for a few coins (with the added bonus of much to-do being made of their philanthropy)–rather than wrestle with why, in a world of plenty, they wallow in pampered luxury through no particular virtue of their own, while most of the world is in rags, starving, and living in shacks. Jesus advised the rich man to sell everything he had and give it to the poor. The numerous charities operating under his name ever since have set a significantly lower standard.”

Peter Kropotkin, narrater in “The Watch” by Dennis Danvers

And Trump and his rich Republican buddies seem to think that poverty is so great they want to destroy the social safety net and middle class so even more people can enjoy poverty!

  And the rail looms

a Frankenstein lurking

over everything yanking

feet from under us wanking

   its way along dumping

     wasted lumps into an

        apocalyptic

            revelation

                    sea.

The beast arises.

And the rail ends.
