Money is an irritant quantifier. So many people took refuge in poverty.
For many people money is hateful, unfriendly, unpleasant because, like it or not, causes a quantification of our existence.
Quantification bothers us money possibly similar to the discomfort we feel when we have to study mathematics: geometry, arithmetic, calculus, trigonometry, algebra, equations, conversions of measurement units.
All humanity rejects study something as quantifier as mathematics.
In addition to reminding the difficulties caused by the mathematical, quantitative reminds us all the laws regulating the affairs
Civil, ie on the rights and obligations of persons, their property, inheritances ;
Penalties, which regulate how states can punish citizens.
When we imagine how much happier we would be doing our will, then we have the rules of coexistence and repressive officials (police, military, judges, prison guards), which cut us that freedom and corresponding imaginary happiness.
Quantitative aspects of existence are opposed to qualitative, whose main feature is that it can not be measured, which are debatable, everyone can evaluate them as you want and even change their own assessment over time (years and to hours).
Qualitative assessments are never coercive or coldly reasonable or obsessively consistent: they are free, capricious, arbitrary, chaotic, anarchic, lacking penalties.
Money is a murderer of almost anything because almost anything can be replaced by money. Worse, some people can be bought and sold, which we face the tragedy that some things seem like objects machines without will, without morals, without feelings, dehumanized.
Here are some reasons why so many people took refuge in poverty.
Note: Original in Spanish (without translation by Google): La pobreza es un refugio.
