Identifying societal memes: the poor

February 13, 2014

I just realized (finally, on the surface) that this is a societal meme:

“The poor” must be either sad or grateful, never happy or sullen; must be extraordinarily attractive, moral, and/or charming; and must be without any form of common comfort or luxury, down to and including mobile phones and small appliances; in order for them to be considered good, noble, and deserving of aid of any sort.
