Christopher Pearsall's curator insight, April 9, 2014 8:17 PM

Most expensive celebrity divorces really shows the enormous disproportionality of wealth and extravagance in our country as celebrities fight over and squander more than most of us will ever have in 5 lifetimes while most of us struggle to get by and try to do right by our children.

 

While it is nice to have celebrities and for the media industries to make their money off movies, spin offs, music albums, concerts, etc.... the absurdity of how much they make for what they do  or how they look from being "discovered" somewhere shows just how absurd it is how much some celebrities are paid and even more absurd how much some lawyers are paid for them to fight about what they have earned thereby wasting even more time and money from their lives instead of acting like adults.

 

Perhaps a good reality show would be divorces of the absurdly wealthy and childish.  If these celebrities want some reality perhaps they should sit in court with non-celebrities and hear the amounts they make as mothers and fathers struggle to get by on unemployment of a family of 4 with $600 a week.

 

You want to see reality?  Don't watch a reality show!

Poverty is a serious social problem

Poverty is a serious social problem | Social Work Blogs | Scoop.it

Poor Kids, the much-lauded, late-night BBC documentary in which the children of struggling adults speak directly to camera about their lives, sums up everything that is wrong with today’s salacious and Dickensian focus on so-called “child poverty”. In circumventing the adult world, elbowing aside problematic parents and guardians in favour of letting the kids “have a voice”, the documentary exposes the extent to which the problem of poverty has been infantilised.

TOP TEN SOCIAL ISSUES IN THE WORLD

TOP TEN SOCIAL ISSUES IN THE WORLD | Social Work Blogs | Scoop.it

Social issues are man-made issues, although people are social animals at certain times we don’t do it in right way, maybe it’s because of the situation or may be it’s because of the negligence towards moral value. People always need to stick to moral values, to be accepted by the community and if a person who fails to do so will be considered as anti-social. It’s a necessity that each and every human being on this planet needs to strictly follow and help other to be social. Let’s join hands with Tyent USA to spread the voice of being social.
