A sense of unspeakable poverty

The incest prohibition generates, in many people, a subjective feeling of unspeakable poverty.

Envy (1) is the title of a blog in which I collect items that relate to that feeling.

Recall that objects do not envy but imagine the happiness in who owns the object we wish to possess.

When someone imagines that envy is a car or a house or cause physical beauty that the envied person look so happy. The envious assumed that if possessed that magical object would reach the happiness of its owner.

The tenth commandment enjoins Christians not to covet the property of others, but humans do not covet objects but the welfare that they would be able to generate on its possessor.

Many people are poor because they lack objectively what we all need to make a living: food, shelter, and little else.

Many people are poor but not objectively devoid of what we all need to live on. Why would anyone feel poor even if humanly decent living?

An answer to the above question is the focus of this article.

Someone may feel subjectively poor because of the prohibition of incest. Who has enough to live decently can feel poor and destitute if you can not have your mom just for him/her.

Governments struggling unsuccessfully to reduce inequalities in the distribution of wealth, economists spend much of their studies to the same goal: to reduce inequalities between rich and poor. There are many international organizations that seek to close the socio-economic gap between different social classes.

All these efforts have been almost useless because of the difference can be really irritating not to mention "Daddy is rich because it enjoys with mom and I am poor because I do not enjoy with Mom".

Note: Original in Spanish (without translation by Google): Una inconfesable sensación de pobreza.
