Haiti, earthquake and extreme poverty: A contribution of the Unicist Confederation 2


Print Friendly, PDF & Email

The dramatic earthquake in Haiti unveiled internationally the structural extreme poverty of the country. But, while the devastation of the earthquake needs to be palliated, the extreme poverty needs to be cured.

The Unicist ontological structure of poverty

The research on the unicist ontology of “Wealth & Poverty” was finished more than 10 years ago. This research showed that every country has emergent, developing, subsistent and under-developing niches in their culture. The wealth of a country depends of which niches prevail.

On the one hand, wealth is driven by work, innovative technology and individual development. On the other hand, poverty is driven by social / individual inertia, the use of subsistence technologies and socializing education.

Social / individual inertia implies that individuals are “imprisoned” by the myths and fallacious myths of cultures. Therefore there is an unconscious “identification with the victim” instead of a “solidarity with the victim”. This drives naturally to poverty.

Extreme poverty requires the existence of fundamentalism. Fundamentalist behavior is the unique valve to escape from the mind-trap of extreme poverty.

But elites are the active drivers of cultures. That is why the development of cultures is basically driven by their elites. Only the local elites of Haiti can cure the structural poverty of the country. This is valid for all the countries that have a structural poverty syndrome.

Don’t give a man a fish. Teach him how to fish instead. Palliatives need to exist, but only if they sustain cures. If not they increase the degradation of a culture.

Our contribution

Unfortunately, we cannot help with palliatives but we can make a small contribution to cures. We offer 100 free accesses to the Unicist Technology Transfer Programs for Haitians so they can apprehend how to develop, step by step, an increase of the emergent niches of their country. This is for all the Haitians that are willing to help their country evolve wherever they live.
