when the people of the world (those that have power to give and take) allow other people to go hungry...something is wrong with those in power, and something is wrong with those people that allow those in power to withhold from those in need.
There is no over-population, or shortage of food; there is only lack of giving out food with proper distribution to those in need. There is only a lack of alotting resources and money for helping others to help themselves.
Bureacracies are so big, the right hand does not know what the left hand is doing...and communication is not flowing from those in need to those in power...those in power can not see those in need, they don't have a clue what is wrong because they can't see beyond their own selfish greed and manipulation of economies.
That's good to know. I question why a fast food chain such as mcdonalds would rather waste food then give it to people who need it. You'll never see a McDonalds gut truck rollin'round in t Africa to give them a french fry. I guess McDonalds must figure that it is best to feed the fatties then to feed the starving. After all, they need people to come back. Maybe they are still busy paying off lawers fees for making people fat. Who knows? We live in a crazy backwards world.
Well I was sorta of thinking about King David. The census; I thought for a while, why would God become raged and bloody angry over a head count of people.? Why would a head count be so disasterous?
My thoughts. When he took the head count, as I recall, he didn't count everyone. What does an improper head count lead to? Hunger, poverty, less security etc.
So could hunger have been the root of moral destruction and chaos?
I know the story about the apple, but why was what was forbidden a fruit?
If everyone in the world was fead and properly housed, would the world be different? Would we be more stable creatures?
So many times I do wonder, why a fat aristocrat laughes and waste food, while the starving child wishes for just one nibble of anything really.
If we first set our sights on curing hunger, would we become more successful as a species? Bottom line to survival is to eat...Many animals do not eat thier own kind, but will when food becomes scarce.
We had this in Soviet Union less than a hundred years ago. Communists were taking all the food stock from Ukrainian villages. All of it. And people started to eat their kids. When communists learned about such a case, they executed the whole family. I read memoirs several years ago. It still bothers me a whole lot... I can't blame those people really, I'm lucky I never been in their shoes... but I know it all started from hating rich...
What did the rich do? I guess I don't always follow why you in other words make references to hating the rich. How does anything start from hating the rich? Is it because the poor were hungry and the rich were fatso's?
What no one ever talks about is population control. Animals have no choice and overpopulate their envirnonment causing a big die back. People have a choice, but that involves regulation. Can't have that. So can't really see blaming God for this refusal of self-control, unless you want to call this willfullness original sin.
Rob the robbers - slogan of the times... Communists used this hate to inspire masses for revolution. If not for this massive hate, they would not be able neither to take the rule, nor to keep it during transition period...
