"Peter looked the beggar in the eye, and reached out a hand to him to lift him up. This is deeply subversive stuff, because it challenges all the implicit and unspoken assumptions about the way the world works. In most societies, including our own, the poor are not to be lifted up, they are not to be looked upon as equals. They are to be ignored, vilified, blamed, stigmatized, and done unto." - Simon Woodman.
