What you mean bout higher cost of living & building over farmlands? & If people invested more money in transportation than beauty, they'd get rich quick, that's if of course society recognized business without beauty which they do of course.

So like, we gave them a loan that takes them 100× longer to pay off than it does for us to pay one off because they don't have the tools to manufacture products quick enough like we do? Very specific question lol


Look into Economic Hit Man for how we operated for many years...

BTW we still need to cut the herd by 70% so you got to start somewhere Mr. Satan...

Horrible people, disgusting. Did you know, that since we have created airplanes & better ships, that 70% more of the world is starving? We travel across seas to exotic places with no care of what we are taking from these people. Maybe some more care now as to 10 years ago. We wonder why they just now need to move because of hunger after thousands of years. It's because of our crafts that make it so easy for us to just grab their stuff because they don't have a law to say not to. We do & other countries too, we still allow to go take from them though with little to no compensation to their well known corrupt goverments that we know won't go give to the tribes or even any legal civilization for that matter.

These places are some of the most frequent hunting trip spots & agricultural manipulated spots. Maybe not as much now since people have already wiped them clean, though still traveled to to get exotic foods a bunch & take products to learn. All over the world technology of more profound cargo carriers have moved food away from the needy, shelter away from the cold & shiny objects away from the curious. Is that alright to you to go & take food as we see fit pretty much? Animals & plants alike. Their goverments don't give money or anything to the people, most of the goverments are poor from us not paying them anyway. Bad.

People are paying to feed the same people that other people are paying to travel & take their natural food. Sick. That is paying for their greed. We are giving to charities to feed these people while others are hunting animals & picking plants. We pay for their water while other people chop down 100 acres of wood because it makes a good handle or beautiful frame. We pay this so they can do that. They obviously have been spending more time taking than we do giving.

We gave them tools without teaching them how to properly use them, flew tools right across the seas & said see ya later. We were taught properly to use tools because it's what was installed in our everyday life. Efficient transport mechanisms have made that easy too so they don't responsibly use what we dropped off on a fly by with some directions on how we made them. All of the world does this to these poor countries. They didn't just create these tools by themselves, nah, we helped them make tools without teaching them how to use them for good. If we tried to teach them, as democracy has proven, anyone can change for the better & use tools for good & they would be good countries now. Besides, we were shooting animals there years before they knew anything besides a bow & spear, which isn't fair because it's leads to us getting there food & have them be starving now.

It can't be illegal to take their food & medicinal plants & good wood. It's a nessecity of freedom right now to take from them. There might be a better way to do it though with compensations to the tribes who don't apply to international law. It can be a mandatory payment to the tribe you are stealing from. Not really a good solution though. You'd have to track down a tribe that might try to hunt you for the food your taking lol & pay them in something you have no idea what they want or how to communicate lol. Even though it's not fair to just take from them cause we got power, it's also not fair to not let us take cause we have power.

Hopefully A.I doesn't run off international laws that we have applied for years, that will be all the super countries next, getting taken from from by A.I cause they will be the better civilization. Well, if we happen to morph with a.i, which part of the brain wins? How would we tell if it is still human? When it remembers everything from the first internet photo & video of every street cam & anything connected to wifi or eventually was put on the internet. Can we differentiate human personality from computers when it masters it's human disguise better than we can be human? Will we the super countries be next to be picked on?

Same thing goes for peoples homeland with cars. That's why it is regulated to the point you can't be free to live off the land. Transportation is the key factor to our freedom of laws. Especially when it comes to what you can hunt or harvest. If money was none existent, our world would be wiped clean of everything from plants to animals.

That's why the economic horseman came after war, we needed a balance for the food & water. First whorseman was technology than the wars came. Economy saved the land from being completely demolished. We make a lot of money off the death we spread there because we are learning how to combat the sicknesses from those famished places. Its the fourth whoresman. How to bring the dead back with technology. I think it's really really bad. The super viruses going around now. Our colds are like 50× worse than a person who hasn't been subjected to anti flu medicines or ibuprophan or antibiotics or been anywhere near anything that might have been near a person like that. We have the touch of death to straight non technological tribes. If we visited with a sickness, it transforms into a freaking plague in places like that. It takes awhile granted, it happens though. It's not good what transportation has done to humans without it.


Read the article. It said roughly 1/9 are going hungry. Thats not exactly 70%. Also the assumption that a drastically larger amount of people are starving after transportation methods modernized is a little unfounded. You would need look at the numbers for how many people were starving before mass air frieght and ships (fun fact, the first aircraft built specifically for cargo was built in 1939) and trans-Atlantic voyages have been going for alteast 500 year, and smaller trading ships that could move goods from africa to greece of rome have been a thing for 2000 years.

You also mentioned using guns to take animals when the local population had only bow and arrows. Ill assume you mean early 19th centry as the proliferation of small arms happened when colonialism started. If so then, well i guess you could say non native people where taking animals that could have been used by the indigenous population, yes. But there were much bigger problems and much smaller populations at the time so the effect that would be negligible. If you talking about modern safari hunting then you could not be more wrong as those cost anywhere from $25,000 up to six figures , and they support the protection of the wildlife and the local population.

Regarding the relationship between transportation and food, you are a bit mistaken. It is thought that prior to the industrial revolution, 90% of human effort went to food. From growing , harvesting, selling, and gettinf it to where it needed to be. Currently thats less than 5%. And thats thanks to technology, long haul trucking, and cargo ships. Of the countries in the article you shared ALL OF THEM were suffering some sort of regional crisis, whether is was a draught or a civil war, that hindered their ability to produce and move food.
