All you're doing is spouting ideals - which simply do not work in a world of economics and a system based on money.
The cold hard truth of it is that some societies simply cannot handle having a ton of money dumped into them. Their current socio-political situation
means it would only drive a wedge further between their current conflicts.
Taking the example of many African states where there's loads of corruption and civil uprest due to the lack of resources. You aren't talking just
about poverty any more. Rich people giving a poor community in African $1billion USD will lead to what? All of them happy? Full of food? No.
You will have violence and warfare. You will have those with the weapons taking the money from the poor. They will then use violence and
intimidation to keep the poor where they are, where they have been for many years.
So what then? Do you send in "good will [people" to mitigate the conflict? Help hand out the food? What happens when thsoe individuals are
attacked by mauraders/pirates/warlords for the money, food and medical supplies? You then need people to protect them, which costs money. Then you
have armed foreign 'protectors' on their land....
I'm not trying to bash you, really - my point is that money simply won't solve it. It needs far more than money. It needs a drastic cultural shift
because right now, fighting to survive, literally, is all they know. And dropping money on it wont work.
EDIT: for the record, I don't abuse animals. I actually value the lives of animals *far* more than any human life and have personally gone to some
extreme 'extremes' to protect an animal or two from abuse.
