    I agree that people can happy at all economic levels including poverty. I disagree that poverty is state of mind. Hunger, cold, oppression, being unable to afford medical care and suffering with treatable illness, clothing that doesn't fit or falls apart, wages that don't pay enough for basics, being destitute with little realistic opportunity for a better life, the hardships from being on the margin of society,  are not states of mind.

    I don't know about those who work do not lose their faith. I was exposed to a great deal of immorality and opportunity to sin at work.


    Okay I do agree with you in terms of the economy. The way the American economy is set up wages have been falling for decades, and there is no time for family.

    I still remember what my mother said to me when I was little and I told her I was getting married at 16 because that is when Ariel from The Little Mermaid got married.  :wink:


    While that is a good thing I wouldn't mention Disney in a positive light. :wink:

    Comments like those are not only sniffy, snarky responses, but are also examples of reverse elitism, as if manual labor and a poor or modest income are in and of themselves more worthy than an educated man who also works hard, though his labor may not be manual. This does not reflect Catholic teaching. A truly Catholic society is hierarchical, and there is as much room for the educated elite as there is for the uneducated manual laborer.


    Oh come on do lighten up. I make fun of everybody. :laugh2:

    Well I put the wink smiley in for a reason.  :wink: It was an example to illustrate that young girls growing up (even in modern homes) get a lot of mixed messages. Snow White married at 15, Sleeping Beauty and Ariel at 16...even in the modern (2010 Tangled movie) Rapunzel married at 18.  We grow up seeing this, romanticized and everything, but then are told it is wrong. In fact, completely unacceptable.

    So yeah at 7 years old I wasn't able to identify that Ariel was occult, Jєωιѕн, feminist, communist, not a real person...whatever...  :laugh1:
