I found the comments on poverty and what happened due to the War on Poverty, meaning the emasculation of Afro American males to be insightful. It seems that any effort to help people ought to be guided by the principle that people want to be productive and that throwing money at a problem is not a solution. It seems that programs that work around the world help set people up in activities they generate and are enthusiastic about, whether it's learning, running a business, or health care initiatives that involve Them. Any time we come to a situation that feels wrong, we ought to first talk in depth to the people who are living the experience, understand their culture, with humility, and then find out how they perceive their dreams and ways to actualize them. They must be involved as active partners and as equals.
