It's nice and all, but realise there have been nice words and nice intentions since the dawn of ages, religions are filled with nice stuff, there are
numerous books, stories, movies and so on that are filled with nice intentions, but yet take a look at the world in 2012 and tell me if you really see
something real coming out of all the nice intentions.
It's because the solutions are technical, scientific. The only thing that prevent people from helping this man and countless other men, women and
children around the world is that they fear for themselves, they have to think about their own survival. Now we are in 2012 and survival is still so
important, despite the high level of efficiency of our science and technology. Realise that scarcity today is artificially maintained by a system
driven by ideology. We dump enormous amounts of food and other resources, just because they have not been bought. We waste so many resources due to
planned obsolescence both in the materials used and in the intrinsic and voluntarily failed design (just think about Ipad 1, 2, 3 with less than a
year between each product, while we could have "ipad 8" today). I know that there is a feel of normalcy to all that, but if you feel that way it's
because you can't imagine that we are failing, you can't imagine that the system is wrong, it would have a huge emotional impact on you, and it's
so much better to tell yourself that everything is well and good and that we are doing our best.
Realise that if you have to fight for your survival it's because it is artificially maintained, it is built in the system.
