Is it wrong to condolences to the "difficulty of living in a villa", or is some perception biased?

  ■ Come on

  In the past few days, two pieces of news related to the Spring Festival condolences have aroused attention: First, Qingdao condolences to the needy households with Moutai bottles at their homes, and then Dongguan condolences to the needy families “living in villas”.

The Dongguan storm seems more difficult to explain.

After all, Moutai bottles can be picked up, and the villa will never come out of thin air.

  For this, the community of Chang'an Town, Dongguan apologized.

But the apology was not because of condolences to the wrong person, but because the local official explained improperly.

The statement stated that the residents being condoned were not the underprivileged households with registered cards or subsistence allowances, but they suffered long-term illnesses and suffered a traffic accident last year, so they were included in the warm visits during the Spring Festival.

Its "improper expression" means that it does not classify people in difficulties from those with serious diseases.

  However, the question has also come: Is it because the grassroots condolences are not accurate in the screening of the assistance recipients, or is there a deviation in people's understanding of the needy households?

For now, the crux may be that many people have misunderstood the "consolation" and "difficult households" from the beginning.

  Condolence is a kind of helping measure to send warmth, but it does not mean institutional poverty alleviation and relief.

From the perspective of grassroots practice, condolences are mostly expressing caring actions according to the occasion, and they often send rice, noodles, grains, oil or a few hundred yuan in condolences.

Using the criteria for identifying poor households to judge whether the object of condolences is “fit”, it is inevitable that there will be discrepancies.

  More critically, is the problem of cognitive barriers to "difficult families (or persons)".

For example, Dongguan’s response mentioned that the local area has become a "billion-yuan village", and there are no registered poor households or subsistence allowances.

This is quite convincing for explaining the problem of "Though people living in villas are still in difficulties"-different regions have different levels of development and different reference standards. Some families who seem to be wealthy enough to the outside world may indeed be treated locally In a relatively "difficult" state.

  In fact, it is not uncommon in the developed areas of my country that the families of the grassroots condolences are not absolutely impoverished.

Some needy families in developed areas have long crossed the poverty line in the sense of poverty alleviation.

Many netizens do not understand this, but their imagination is limited by reality.

  2020 is the node of building a well-off society in an all-round way. It is foreseeable that the kind of poverty-stricken households who have established documents and registered cards will become less and less common, but there will still be grassroots condolences, which will turn more to local people who are relatively difficult.

Regarding the misunderstandings, on the one hand, local governments need to explain more, and on the other hand, public perceptions must "advance with the times."
