Being assisted is the identifying mark of the poor person’s condition, the criterion of her belonging to a specific social layer of the population. A layer that is inevitably devalued because it is defined by its dependence on others. Being assisted, in this sense, is receiving everything from other people without being able to engage, at least for a short period, in a relation of being complementary or reciprocal. The impoverished, receiver of help that is specifically designated to her, has to accept to live, even if it is only temporary, with the negative image that society has of her.
