honestly i admire your compassion, but when my country's falling apart, the last thing i really concern myself with is other nation's problems. i
mean, the entire world is in really bad shape right now. rather than funding israel or giving the entire third-world airlifted food in cardboard
boxes, at least in this country, we need to fix our own way of life here, because if we dont it will get AS BAD as it is over there.
it's kind of a waste of time to constantly worry about other country's problems much as it is to constantly worry about other friend's or family
member's personal problems (im talking about problems people pretend to be helpless to do about like bad relationships... obviously not problems like
cancer)... when they're issues that they can solve themselves but act too helpless to do so.
like we're expected to feed the entire world... how about they learn to feed themselves? it's such a waste of resources to fly food across oceans to
starving people that will have the food stolen by militias with guns anyway. why dont the adult men and women get guns themselves and defend
themselves? why dont they grow fields of food? how about move away from cities where militias hold power? how about move out of the area, but not
necessarily trek out of the country?
i'm sorry but they're human beings and adults... any nation ends up living in hell because the people let it get to that point - just like what's
happening in the US. if people sit there and take it, then whatever ill tidings come to them is their own fault; and i'm not going to waste my time
worrying about them when they asked for it in the first place. OBVIOUSLY I'M NOT BLAMING CHILDREN. that should go without saying.
it just gets me mad that everyone wants a hand out when cave men 40,000 years ago lived off of foraging the landscape and shooting game with bows and
arrows made of sticks and random rocks found on the ground.
i remember a vision of giving the third world a ton of agricultural and permacultural and husbandry knowledge when i was younger, and one day i would
like to do that, but what is the US supposed to do about it? if you're asking the US goes to war with somali militia or whatever then my answer as an
American citizen is a loud HELL NO.
