Moïse Lindor (Port- au-Prince, Haiti, June 6, 1976) is a Haitian politician and researcher, known for his research around the topic of human sexuality, clinical psychopathology, psychosomatic problems, suicide and addictions; rural studies, public policy, indigenous peoples and extreme poverty in Latin America and the Caribbean. From 1983 to 1989 Moïse Lindor conducts its primary studies (Republic of Paraguay National School, Port- au-Prince). From 1990 to 1996 he finished high school (Lycee Antenor Firmin, Port- au-Prince). Then studied psychopathology clinic at the State University of Haiti (UEH), wherein, in the year of his graduation, his first scientific paper on "Caring for a child from 1 to 6 years in the auditorium of the State University of Haiti Port au prince. from 2008 to 2012, the master of Regional development by the College of Tlaxcala, A.C. where he presented his thesis on the conceptual analysis of poverty and its effects on the family, which has contributed to the socioeconomic development of the Atzayanca municipalities, . Emiliano Zapata, Españita and Atlangatepec This thesis focuses on poverty and the effects on the family, ie, economic crises recurring, the deterioration in employment, resources and increasing poverty among the population, cause unimaginable havoc. the family as a reference cell, the association base that allows respond to the physical and mental needs of individuals, to ensure their balance of life. self-help the place of privacy, of silent solidarity, one of the last shelters outside the commercial and social relations, as an agency that solves the problems of scarcity, has undergone several changes in its organization and its ability to meet basic needs. Resulting in a problem of human rights, freedom, inequality, social injustice; as well as a threat to harmony, social relationships and family welfare in Latin America and the Caribbean. He noted that the needs are essentially human or physiological, however, the desire to satisfy a need is a matter of choice and that varies according to culture, education, and everything that has to do with taste. Otherwise, the need to buy dresses, jackets, blankets or shoes, is not the same as satisfying hunger. So preferences or tastes resulting from voluntary acts of desire. The fact of choosing satisfy a need rather than another does not mean that devalues ​​but the preferences are met in accordance with the priorities of each. Therefore, it is considered important to reiterate that human beings are the only living beings that are able to meet their needs with their own abilities or criteria, and change their way of life in society. Furthermore, poverty can be regarded as tangible evidence of malfunction of society, as a social injustice and lack of freedom to meet human needs. The hard part of being poor is that the individual feels limited, disappointed, frustrated, aggressive and often marginalized in society because of its location. All this is summarized in a deep fear of society, the fear of not having the support of close ones, resulting in a greater social isolation is associated with more precarious and unstable work situations. Sometimes they are victims of labor exploitation, accept all kinds of abuse for fear of job loss, since what little you earn, you have to take home support, schooling of children, among others. Therefore, the poor grow up with a hatred of society, however, some poor parents prefer to invest in the education of their children, to avoid the same suffering, hoping for a better socio-economic life. Clearly, the satisfaction of needs allows the individual to be healthy morally, emotionally socio-biologically. Here the conflict between the three terms "need, satisfaction and poverty" emerges. It is assumed that the human biological needs are, and always manifest themselves at some point. Now, the liberation of desire relating to the tastes and preferences (priority) is undeniably satisfying these desires to measure the socioeconomic status of each individual. You always have to meet all needs again and again, is the law of nature.To understand this double behavior that explains the raison d'etre of human life, often resorted not only the articles of the Declaration of Human Rights, where not only all the responsibilities of a community are presented to its members but also structural factors , cultural, psychological and educational environment that can change their behavior or status in society. Someone in poverty resents lot of frustration and humiliation. Therefore, in the case of man on the one hand, he does his best to be the leading provider of home economic resources; on the other, it is usually fully comply with that responsibility, either being unemployed or because the money is not enough. The breach of obligations weakens their authority within the family and affects the distribution of power. The image of the "male breadwinner" makes the most complete form of exercise this responsibility is assuming himself the task of bringing home income. In this sense, the existence of poverty is an aberration of social life; a clear sign of malfunction of capitalist society. Similarly, capabilities can also have contradictory and disastrous end when not applied for the welfare of the population. On the contrary, this helps explain the many cases of violence, corruption, crime, prostitution and male chauvinism. Then they serve capabilities when fully utilized for social development and human welfare. So capabilities can be used according to the conception of life, respect for nature and above all the humanity of every human being not to harm, but to love, as they all have the ability to build or destroy; only those who have received a happy childhood, a good education will have the necessary weapons of nobility to face the difficulties, hardships, and the ability to make a difference in society, who are poor or not. This perspective opens up the possibility of strengthening more than ever, the values ​​that have served much to the strength of the community, or at least return to those who have left the elderly who are socio-cultural heritage. In this sense, the capacities have their advantages and disadvantages for society. Therefore, in an equitable society, people have the same opportunities. The socio-economic inequalities should serve the political actors, among other authorities, to accept the fact of malfunction of communities and work to resolve the differences, the unjust conditions of the most vulnerable; such behavior will avoid confrontations seriously disturbed many frustrated groups, conflicts. Keep in mind that this reality has strong repercussions in various ways on freedom and human rights. As mentioned in the previous paragraphs, the theory of justice has to do with the socio-economic benefit of all citizens. In other words, this approach seeks to provide a proper and fair distributive principle basing on the equal rights of citizens and the allocation of goods and services. So all members of society should have equal opportunities to achieve their goals successfully. He completed his PhD in Regional Development at the College of Tlaxcala, A.C. since December 2015. With a decision unanimously they demonstrated the close relationship between inequality and extreme poverty in Haiti between 2001 and 2012 as well as recent social programs are not effective in fighting poverty in rural areas neither are to identify to the extreme poor. And now, Dr. Lindor is professor research in clinical psychology and psychotherapy and responsible for training programs for social reintegration and socio skills and intelligence in domestic youth in trouble with the law in the detention center Instruction Measures for Adolescents in the State of Tlaxcala ( CIIMAET).
