To argue for this conclusion, Singer begins with the assumption that a lack of food, shelter and medical care is bad. This assumption in his view is apparent to people that are suffering and dying due to starvation. Lacking essential needs is obviously a negative thing.

Where Has All The Water Gone? Mark Holston’s essay “Where Has All the Water Gone?” explores the issue of water shortage across the globe.

Aristotle’s rhetorical appeals – pathos, logos, and ethos – are an important part of this essay.

Norman Pearson who was voice on the topic at this time believed poor people living in poverty were “seldom capable of reform”, they tended to be “made of inferior materials… and cannot be improved” and the poor should be prevented from breading as the poor were poor “in their blood and their bones”. People became concerned about the percentage of the poor living in poverty and the extent of poverty in which they were living.
Poverty is not only a lack of sufficient income or material possessions. It is also a condition in which people lack prestige and have less access to resources. The poor often have different lifestyles and different values from those of people not living in poverty. The conditions that poor people often cope with may include: unemployment or off-and-on employment, low-status and low-skill jobs, unstable family and relationships, low involvement in the community, a sense of being isolated from society, low ambition, and feelings of helplessness.

Porfiry in Dostoyevsky’s Crime and Punishment has such an intellectual way of investigating Raskolnikov and his motives. Dostoyevsky creates a character with a small role, yet such an outstanding impact that he can be thought of as the antagonist of this novel. His methods can be defined as different and leave a permanent stain on Raskolnikov as a character. Although psychology was in effect long before Porfiry steps foot onto the scene.

2.3.3. The Functions of Poverty theory One use of the functionalist way to deal with the marvel of poverty permits us to draw general lessons. Gans has thought about at some length the elements of poverty, taking up Merton's point that things which are useful for some sub-group in the public arena might be useless for others. Society, he contends, is so engrossed ostensibly with the "cost" of destitution that it neglects to distinguish the comparing benefits, or rather, the group or values that benefit.
