Starvation





There's obviously something wrong here.

How can we change it?

The first guy can eat the kid.

It's just a modest proposal...

...remember that this is in mature discussions.

This is a topic i'm very much serious about. People here are getting fat... children and men and women over there are starving to death... it's not fair at all...

For starters, the second guy's parents can begin working harder so he gets fed. Seriously though, you don't see any kid whose parents live in a developed country with a nine-to-five job or even a just about doing it job starving. Why? Maybe government aid services or something. So the only answer is to get those countries to start developing, which they already are. So we're moving towards the solution.

What exactly do you find "unfair" about it?

That's true... but the problem is that there ARE No jobs...

Also, may i reccomend a website, for anyone who might want to help? it's called kiva.org

it's basically a place where you pay small lones to people trying to make their own business in developing countries- once they get their business going and make some money, you can get your cash back and continue lending. it's quite nice. Oh, and it's been on several different big time shows/channels, such as Oprah and PBS, so it's been verified. Wikipedia = win.

Then again... that's still small steps. is there any way we can accelerate the process? i mean.. people are dying of preventable causes in many of these places by the minute...

It was apparently a too-sly reference to Jonathan Swift's "A Modest Proposal" in which he discusses such inequalities.

Again, like we've said before, life just isn't fair.

Africa has the potential to be the richest continent in the world, with all of the resources and not to mention diamonds it contains. But it lacks the systems, structure and the people in the countries lack a common ground to thrive like countries like America (not saying this is the case for all of the countries).

Americans are losing jobs, on the verge of becoming homeless, yet a company is out sourcing jobs to India, and other less developed countries. One might say thats good for the people in those countries. But what about home? I personally think countries should fend for themselves when it comes to such things.

Might come off as harsh. But really, the thought of our own people becoming homeless in one of the richest countries in the world just so a company can save a buck and use "helping underdeveloped countries" as an excuse isn't cool to me.

Things like this are a slap of reality for the rest of us. We wouldn't know what we had until we saw someone who didn't have it.

When your 20, you need to eat meat tho =/
Helps your system grow

Ontopic:
Yay! Some people agree with me, they do have everything/kinda that they need to develop, they arent using it.
The rich ppls in Africa and such are being greedy and taking everything.
If they would share, things could become clearer
I know, Ireland for a fact, donates over 2,000Euro every year to them and also two or three cows to them.
We help them with water and aid them too.
But are they using or learning what we give them?

I'm actually rather surprised that Jik thinks there is a problem, since a lot of Africa is in nearly a pure libertarian/anarchistic state.
