Poor disease is who so self-diagnosed. The opinions of others are insufficient to determine what we should to each one.
I've told them I'm the one (or another one of those) used the concept to describe pathological poverty that poor socioeconomic conditions that vain would be improved by those who live it.
For some comments I have received repeatedly consider it appropriate to make this article that pretend clarify something relatively important.
Someone is a poor pathological if, and only if, he defines himself as such. The opinion that others may have about your lifestyle takes value only if it is ratified by who is in that situation.
For example, someone may say that John Doe is a poor pathological because he sees inhabiting a shack built on a flood plain whenever the rains are especially abundant.
Although that opinion referred to Juan Perez is shared by many, including experts in economics, architecture, urban planning, anthropology, philosophy, psychology, sociology, Juan Pérez is not poor if he does not confirm pathological be disgusted with their economic situation does not confirm has made strenuous efforts to improve it without positive results.
This is because we all do that, unintentionally, inadvertently, automatically, we set as a reference model.
We believe imitable examples because we always do all we can to make everything right and we believe that ours is the only way to "do everything right".
Our intelligence is unable to recognize and accept that there are ways to live as good as ours.
For this difficulty in our brain is that John Smith has the last word in poverty YOUR pathological diagnosis. None of us is qualified to determine what should and what should be your preference.
Note: Original in Spanish (without translation by Google): La pobreza patológica sólo puede ser autodiagnosticada.
