I know to some people the world seems like a lovely place and this may sound unbelievable but the world has a dark side and that dark side is poverty, oppression and even starvation on a mass scale. Why do some people have so much when others do not even have essentials or even close to decent living conditions? Even in the West the “civilized” world where most people can afford to eat we still see high suicide rates, depression, much mental illness and poverty.
Why is this the case? How is it this huge planet that grows food all over it can not sustain us? The answer is it can! The problem is not a shortage in the supply of food the problem is a fault in the distribution of food. As far as a business is concerned why would they want to distribute food to a location that the food is not valuable or unfordable? This is the price of the ultra capitalistic world they are creating. They literally care more about profit than they care about people.
Africa is a perfect example (as always) it suffers from huge poverty and starvation yet running through Africa is second largest rainforest in the world. A place that grows more unspoiled food than we could possibly consume. In most cases travel restrictions are to blame for both the shortage of incoming food and the for the deaths of people seeking food as travel restriction prevent them from moving.
This is yet another example of how governments cause much more problems than they solve, even worse is they sometimes even create problems intentionally, why would they do this? Because the solution usually leads to governments being given extra funding in taxes and/or extra powers and more control.
Despite such high rates of poverty around the world and in their own nations and the huge sums of money collected in tax and evaded in tax by corporations and billionaires every years the government are not so fast to address poverty as a problem. This is because unlike terrorism there is no profit to be made in fighting poverty unless you are talking about charities because charities have found a way to make a profit from “fighting” poverty. They use and collect for poverty to make themselves rich.
We are in a class war and the rich are literally acting like parasites taking everything for themselves and leaving the poorer classes short. Thats not to say we can blame everything on the rich because we don’t fight them, we let them carry on extorting us and pass the blame and take our anger out on immigrants.
Africa is also rich in natural resources unfortunately for the African people that wealth does not flow through the African economy and help the African people in fact it helps corporations and businesses who exploit the situation and use Africa and other poor nations for cheap labour, metals, food, oil and huge profit.
