A very informant and strange animation

This animation is like your on a psychedelic trip. But it presents a strong message that could not keep being ignored. The animation presents it's self as a fact that how people spend more then enough money on ridiculous items that a small fraction can feed the entire planet. As a radical like myself this makes my blood boil to the point I scream at my monitor.
Here's the video. Please tell me what you think of this video after you viewed it.

we are a race of sentient hogs that are too obsessed with the material. Reminds me of the lyrics to Lady GaGa's song "The Fame":

I can't help myself
I'm addicted to a life of material
It's some kind of joke
I'm obsessively opposed to the typical

All we care about is
Pornographic girls on film
And body plastic
Give me somethin' I wanna be
Television and hot blondes in aquisitions

Yes we live for the fame

This video proves a good point that we need to care about our human brethren. Instead, what do we do? we humanize our pets. there are people who go hungry, die, are abused, are homeless, etc, but, you know what? we care about our little chihuahua in a handbag more than a person.

A joke is PETA. thru them, if you abuse an animal, you may get a longer term than someone who abused a child.

we need to come together as one. that reminds me of a song by the Black Eyed Peas, "One Tribe":

One tribe one time
one planet one race
It's all one blood don't care about your face
The color of your eye or the tone of your skin
Don't care where you are don't care where you been

Cuz where we gon go is where we wanna be
the place where the little language is unity
and the continent is called Pangaea
and the main ideas are connected like a spear

no propaganda , they tried to upper hand us
cuz man i'm lovin this piece
man man i'm lovin this piece
man man i'm lovin this piece

ya i highly reccomend this song. you may recognize it as the background music for the Pepsi Refresh Project commercials.

ya sorry about the music, but some artists actually care about the world and making a difference, and they are also the ind that appeal to us more impressionable youngsters.

all of us need to come together as one, and i don't wanna sound like a preacher but we need to be one. one blood one love one passion. one tribe one understanding cuz you and me can become one! (sorry also lyrics to one tribe. its like my favorite song because of its message.

Good video. My first reaction is to eat the rich.

Who made the video, and do they have an agena?

If all the information there is true, we just have to convince people that helping the unfortunate is not that hard. Because according to the video, it's not.

The only problem I see is that giving money to organizations to help in this regard is a waste of time because they have so many people on their payroll to get the job done, that by the time it gets to the place where it's needed, there's not much left. Then you have the beurocratic red tape between countries that make things even more difficult if not impossible. Those and other reasons give the common man the impression that's it's extremely difficult and expensive to do.

Not meaning to sound flippant or anything, but I think the aliens need to come down here on Dec. 21, 2012 and take care of this situation for us since we don't seem to have the intelligence required to take care of ourselves.

Romantic_Rebel, I assume you own a computer. Do you realize how much relief aid you could send to the third world for the price of your computer?

What made my blood especially boil was the simplistic notion that we can solve all the world's problems by throwing our money at them.

Once we sacrifice our abundance who then will continue to sacrifice? Who will be left to suckle from after the moochers and looters have sucked us dry?

Here's some interesting info on our foreign aid, which doesn't seem to be uplifting any of the recipients (but you'd think it would if problems could be solved in the simplistic manner in that animation)...

The U.S. will give an estimated $26 billion in foreign aid in 2008—70% more than when President George W. Bush took office (the figure doesn’t include funds related to the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan). More than 150 countries get financial assistance from the U.S. Parade

And that's only from the Federal Government! When we look at all U.S. aid sources (individuals, person-to-person, and organizations) the amount is staggering...

Of the $122.8 billion of foreign aid provided by Americans in 2005 (the most current data available), $95.5 billion, or 79 percent, came from private foundations, corporations, voluntary organizations, universities, religious organizations and individuals, says the annual Index of Global Philanthropy.

How much additional rape do we need to fulfill your Utopian pipe-dreams? Because if this isn't enough already then--until these impoverished countries learn to successfully govern themselves and produce goods for themselves--how much more should we give?

Right on, you said it far better than I could have. You've got to wonder if we keep throwing money at the problem and it's not getting any better why is that? Could it be there's a vested interest in keeping things as they are? Perhaps so more of this self sacrificing blather can be foisted on us and we can get it through our thick skulls that were good for nothing but slave labor for everyone else who "needs" our life and labor. Wealth is a byproduct of hard work and effort, something earned, to then criminalize those who worked hard is simply ridiculous.

If we actually had good AID-companies and governments/state chiefs (sorry to early), it probably wouldn't need to be like this. If you looked up how much we needed for this place here to get self-efficient, that would solve our problems. There were a thread about some bulgarian guy in the US that had made free energy through quantum mechanics and hydrogen (if I'm correct)
Let us build this in before mentioned place, build water-refinery, I saw a theory before about heating water, that way removing the salt from the water and got more or less clean water (after some filtering ofcourse) which could be used by this free energy and would provide some jobboppertunities for some of the locals, also building pipes to all the villages etc, giving them clean water, also giving them animals to breed, eat and milk. Now that we have done this, also helping with some medicine and abit with houses, cloths, the small things that they might need, they don't really need that much help anymore. Later on they can expand with new villages, technology, schoolsystems etc. IMO this sounds like a good plan but I don't know, not really that smart so hopefully someone will give good critics
