But, the majority of it, is your opinion - not fact.
It would be a wise move to state, that its your opinion, and not fact - lest some readers be mislead.
(The Great Plague was caused by vitamin C deficiency. Meat is the only way to build up uric acid in your body. Etc)...
I'm not in the mood to tear apart the *more than fact* points you've made, but, there are many.
That the intent behind the thread is to uplift and buoy peoples hopes, is commendable.

Welcome to ATS, and of course I appreciate the effort put into this thread, but I must pull you up on a few issues.
PART I OF III
You Will Never Starve

Dude, telling people the GREAT PLAGUE was caused by lack of vitamin C is NOT nitpicking.
Lack of writing space is no excuse for passing on such drivel!
The great plague - which we DO KNOW the cause of - was the bubonic plague - in other words the Yersinia pestis bacteria that is carried by rodents!
Also stating the build up or uric acid in the system is caused ONLY by eating MEAT is - again - just irresponsible and out and out NOT TRUE!
Asparagus, spinach, mushrooms, to name just a FEW are vegetable people with gout should not consume as they are VERY HIGH in uric acid - more so in fact (depending) than meat!
Look, you're the OP - it's your responsibility to post FACTS - OR - to state, what you're posting is YOUR OPINION.
I'm not nitpicking, I'm just not into the bs and I don't have the time to spoon feed this thread. It's off base, drastically so, though again I reiterate, the intent to uplift people is commendable.
Like I said, and said kindly and with respect, your post, you went to a lot of work on it (seemingly) and, that your post is offering HOPE is COMMENDABLE.
But get your freakin facts straight.
And by the by - when people point out your wrong, buck up and take it like a man - don't call them nitpickers when you in fact, are wrong from the get go.
As for people never going hungry?
That is just such a pipe dream I'm not even going to go there.
Giving hope is one thing - giving false hope, in my opinion, is a crime - but I choose not to go any farther with this thread.

You will never starve. Try telling that to the millions who already have. Seriously!
Sure, there's food in the jungle...but there are BILLIONS of us. You really haven't thought this through,

Colopatiron, I don't know you, but I can effectively say that you are loved.
You are the human being that must exist in this world. I have often wondered if anyone else knew about freedom.
THE UNIVERSE PROVIDES FOR YOU IN GREAT ABUNDANCE. YOU WILL NEVER STARVE. Take that in and absorb that, food is free, readily available in great abundance, pay for it if you choose but it's readily available for free if you want it anywhere in the world.
Believe it or not, berries grow in the wild! Believe it or not you can grow your food in absolute abundance to a point that you have to throw some of it away or give it away,
SHELTER IS FREE. I know you have been programmed to think you need $100,000 or more to buy a home to have shelter, this is false. IT IS FREE. And might be as simple as offering a nearby landowner a free cutdown and carry away of trees, something they'd usually pay someone a fee for but avoid doing to avoid paying more money.
In regards to shelter, please note, I NEVER said land was free. Not in many highly populated parts of the world. However there are large stretches of land on this planet that are not inhabited or lived on or cultivated. Who owns these pieces of land? The government ran by the people? Think about it, the government doesn't own all the land, it would like you to believe it does and it may appear to in some areas but when you go buy land, you don't go and buy it from the government. Who is the landowner if there isn't one? Is every acre on this planet owned? If so whoever owns a lot of land would surely let some go for cheap in exchange for some FREE FOOD.
If so whoever owns a lot of land would surely let some go for cheap in exchange for some FREE FOOD.
To keep it short, you can now live completely off the energy grid with wind and solar power.
Why do people overeat, is it because they are starving for certain nutrients?
Stop focusing on what you can't do, and start focusing on what you easily can do and do it, CREATE. If you try something and it isn't working, find something that will and do it. There is nothing wrong with wealth, it is merely creativity in action. Write books, create music, invent. Create things that are easy and a joy for you to create. Create until you cannot create anymore, add value to the world. People have sold/bartered skills for years and generated mass amounts of wealth and prosperity for generations! THIS IS THE KEY TO UNLIMITED RICHES.
Certain foods make you not only stronger and fitter but actually increase your intelligence and capacity to learn. Great wealth is easy to acquire! Add all this up and you are free anywhere you go. This is true liberation, freedom, independence, peace of mind. The universe provides for you everywhere you go. Hopefully you've learned something new or have gained some insight in an area you need it in. Take care.
