Analysis 09

It is in the news that all these pitiful kin
Are to be bought out and mercifully gathered in
To live in villages, next to the theater and the store,
Where they won’t have to think for themselves anymore…

  1. What is the good news for the poor people?
    The media keep on advertising that the governments are planning schemes for the welfare of the poor people.
  2. Do you think the ‘good news’ for the poor people’ ever come true? Why?
    No, the promises of the governments for the poor people are not seriously meant and therefore most of them remain just promises and are forgotten. This happens because these promises are the election baits and the bureaucratic trick to exhort money in the name of the poor people.
  3. Who are the pitiful kin? Why are they called so?
  4. What are the promises made by the politicians?
