When we use shame as a tool for behavioral change, we have made a clear statement:

We have chosen not to see the person and systems, internal and external, that influence their current decisions.

And because these things are not known - the person is not known - we can absolve ourselves from any wrong doing. We can rationalize our efforts as lending a helping hand instead of it being, what it is, a damning rebuke of one's character and values.

As a result, we force those that we desire to see to do better into a shell: devoid of light and wrestling with the notion of hope.

Shaming people will not improve their financial situation - it will not close the wealth gap.

We are convinced, however, that love, compassionate empathy, and justice can.
