I had to read this post a couple of times before writing something, because I kept thinking I was reading it wrong.
I will try to explain what is IMO, for more than I would say 40 years we have lived in a society that chooses to put band-aids on the problem instead
of taking care of it. Food is a way to control the people.
Ive always asked myself, what is the deal that though the gov wants to constantly state that they are helping other countries, we have tele-thons,
things such as concert's and even regular everyday people sending cash.
Maybe and thats a BIG maybe, we would have had food on our minds as opposed to money, we would have gave them seeds, or well's that worked for longer
than a month, we gave temporary fixes, to long term problem's.
Now we enter starving countries and introduce Monsanto seeds, make these people take out loans, for seeds they cannot grow in their environment.
I am all for helping my fellow man, and when I can I actually do something about it, but if I know that my neighbor has fallen on hard times, I will
not give them fish, but teach them how to fish, that's how people have and hold dignity.
There will never be a time when people will no longer be in need, and picking and choosing those that we want to help (as long as its profitable) will
always win. That's why the state of our world is at stake. Right now we (the US) have many areas in need of things such as food, and children go to
bed every night without a meal, and they live here. There's no profit in helping, just making empty promises and small fixes to major problems that
seem to make this world go round.
Corruption, seems to be the least of the worries, because though they fight and bleed the country dry, people still starve, and die, from something
that this planet provides to us for free.
Peace to you...
