I know this isn't you, because you're too sophisticated to fit in this sub category, but what does it take to live under deplorable conditions, conditions not fit for a human being?
How do you treat your wives, children, fellow human beings, yourself?
A deplorable condition would be an environment where you can't trust anyone and everyone is out for self? Would be a land filled with naysayers, slanderers and crushers of the spirit.
Law and order has given way to chaos and confusion, now you need physical force to maintain peace. Is this considered "submission"?
Nothing to do with material things, but all to do with the heart, mind, soul. Under deplorable conditions there's no safety and security.
