I understand it is possible to ask for critiques here and ask that you guide me to adapt this question if needed.
Now, I feel the need every now and then to get a thought down on paper. However, I am shy to diffuse the resulting text as the unrefined form may distract the reader from grasping the content.
What I'm trying to express in the following text is a kind of unconscious reflex observed in people where they cannot help display disdain. This is when confronted with the situation of another person - like a beggar on the street, for example - that does not fit in with their beliefs and views of the world. Also, that disdain in higher spheres can destroy a society, especially in a bad economic context and the scarcity that this brings, adding to that the intuition that a serious flaw lies in centralized control.
What I think needs improving here:
- Perhaps wording or style.
P.S: I'm native to an English country but did part of my schooling years in a French-speaking country. Please take this into account if anything seems strange.
P.P.S: Would like to know what this kind of text could be categorized as. It's obviously not fiction.
To let inequality spread is to let contempt become acceptable. For, if we vilify this unthinking attitude through moral teachings, it can emerge as a defense mechanism to distance ourselves from the needy and suffering when basically the main differences lie with chance.
The greatest danger of all is to see this extend to circles of power. For, if the powerful distance themselves from the average citizen, they ultimately end up ignoring the needs of the many. That is why centralized authority can only degrade over time into the abuse of privileges and in such a way as to imperil the very same ideals that gave it birth.
