Add comment on:George Orwell in the Government: The Rich Come from the Poor
Albrecht von Luecke
In Germany as in the US, the rightwing insist poverty is not a social question and fighting poverty is not a question of money. Rather poverty is a question of attitude and therefore of one's own making. Thirty years of neoliberal restructuring gave every advantage and privilege to capital and led to exploding inequality and generalized insecurity. Different realities are painted. Falling real wages are a sign of structural improvements on the labor market!
