Passing Thoughts Of A Mad Priest (the fear of strangers)

When you have very little, the prospect of losing it and being left with nothing is terrifying. It does not matter how often and loudly people with quite a lot tell you to stop being stupid, the fear does not go away.

There is a way to dissipate the dread felt by the poor and it does not involve words. It requires those with quite a bit to be the first to share what they have with anybody arriving from elsewhere with little of their own, rather than expecting those people with very little to share their very little with the newcomers.
