What would it take to eliminate world hunger? - the longer answer.

What would it take to eliminate world hunger?

asked by Dubuquedogtrainer

How could we eliminate world hunger....?

Spend the money spent on armaments on food, simple really, except food for feeding starving people does not make cash, whereas weapon sales that kill folk do.

Education, yes to a degree, but you are looking long term here, because cultural differences and lower aspirations often mean that folk are OK with just enough, and our 'education' always teaches that more is better, and of course as most folk cannot grow food, we need to grow efficiently, so that we can supply others, and frankly, a lot of these subsistence farmers don't do efficient hard working,"We can make our fortune" style, they do more "this is good, we can feed our family" type of working.

Stopping wars would be a prime way, but as previously stated, the 1% continue to prosper by keeping wars going, so overall I would say the best way to eradicate hunger, would be to remove the 1% from power and let people sort out the best ways to get food where it is required.

The ENTIRE population of the world could fit into Australia and still leave half of Canberra empty, and that is with one and a half acres for each individual, and with the rest of the world empty.

Overpopulation is NOT the problem, well maybe it's 1% of the world that is 'over populated' with greedy Illuminati people that needs to be removed, before we, the 99% can think about solving our problems, but in general, if we stopped making wars and weapons, we would have sufficient to allow everyone to not starve.

Another way would be to stop eating so much ourselves.

That would not mean convenience foods spare enough to stock the average third world (sorry it's developing world now isn't it) supermarket with cornflakes, but then again they are hardly interested in western food, what they actually want is basic staples for their diet, such as rice, maize, fresh vegetables and possibly a few animals to provide occassional feasts for the whole village, and eggs and milk in between.

No the reason we would help if we cut down would be that the money we no longer wasted on consumerism fancy foods that are nutritionally worthless, could be sent to the people on the ground actually trying to solve the problem.

Not the charities who spend 95% of what they collect actually collecting the cash (and paying Charity Fund Raisers big salaries) and definitely not to any official government body (when your cash will add a wing to the Presidential Palace or keep the Presidential Jet in the air for another hour).

No, we need to sort out the real benefactors, the people who live on the job and serve a starving people, and who will actually have the victims best interests at heart, rather that their own.

An example...

and another example....

But it starts when we remove the 1% whose plan is to reduce our world population down from 7 billion to 500 million, that's called eugenics and the same folks who run the world also want to set that plan in motion, already have as it happens, and thats why they work both ends towards the middle.

Starve the poor to death and kill the rest in wars.

Your choice, they (the 1%) can only keep control whilst we (the 99%) obey their wishes and don't challenge their orders, the moment that folk were non complant en mass, thier power would be broken.

NOT eating the crap that BigFood delivers to your TV set would be a start, telling the banksters that they were NOT getting bailed out would be a good second, and telling our elected servants to bring the troops home to guard our shores, rather than invading other peoples, would be a sure third option.

      Yes, John, we need to feed the hungry as Christ commanded; however, if we want to extirpate the problem entirely then should we not consider the cause of famines: 2 Samuel 24:13; Psalms 105:16; Isaiah 51:19; Jeremiah 14:15; 15:2; 24:10; 27:8. It will not go well for any nation that rebels against God.

      I haven't seen Bill Wilson for awhile. He used to come around here once or twice a year. Unfortunately, government will never solve our problems successfully. Solutions grow just like our food . . . from the roots up.

      The Church should make practical community outreach a main priority and earn those tax breaks.

      The world is full of natural or primary resources in form of water, energy, soil, minerals and air that could be used to change into secondary and tertiary resources to eliminate the hunger through utilizing the high-tech skills for the benefits of mankind.

      Nature never being injustice with mankind but man is brutal and shrewd in his lust to accumulate maximum resources or assets to increase surplus to exploit and control the societies or nations as ruler against the poor or resource less people in form of hunger, illiteracy, war and terror.

      Now the question is that how we can eliminate this hopeless situation from the world? The answer is not easy about these complex issues even we have enough money as well as developed resources-in this quantum age where the world has known as global village.

      The term globalization is only slogan or reality with its nature by the developed nations that we must do the operational study whether it is used to exploitation or has some reality to resolve problems of resource less nations seriously.

      Till now the studies are not satisfactory that capitalist nations are not sincere to lift poverty from less-developed countries.

      They had only individual interest to accumulate or expand the surplus by unequal distribution of resources and to maintain the difference of have and have not, yet.

      Without economics and social justice- there is not concept of prosperity and food security to every nation particularly poor.

      First, we need to reform the system as capitalist economy that this system protects the individual interest instead to safe the interest of collective.

      Now the state-capitalism is considered appropriate system to get revolutionary changes in the society such as China and India are best examples that they have controlled the poverty almost from the below level by distribution of resources on near the equity base under the guidance of investment by the government on large scale industries and control private sector investment policies to small scale industries for creating maximum employment opportunities to their people.

      Therefore, we can say that government economy serve for welfare of the people while private serve for their own interest or profit. Hence, the government economy makes hopes to control the hunger in the society better than private sector.

      Finally, we need to follow the state-capitalism to eliminate the hunger from the world.

      Thanks Will,

      Getting rid of the 1% and the wars would be a true blessing.

      Hi Lew,

      No need to kill 7 million, the top 500,000 would suffice, the rest are just mind controlled morons who think they are the winners, but will be just corporate slaves if the plan proceeds unhindered.

      I am not saying that removing the tumour will not cause some distress to the patient, just saying that if you leave the cancer untouched, the patient will die.

      The 1% do not provide jobs, they just control the money supply, and a freed up money supply, where nations could control their own money, would also free up the economy.

      People have babies because they enjoy sex, God made us that way, but we could feed all those babies if we were not 'feeding' the 1%.

      "Why should we encourage activity that only adds to the human burden?"

      I agree, lets rid ourselves of the 1% and reduce the human burden.

      Babies are a blessing from God, but they are an inconvenience to the world eugenics program, especially as most of them are born to poor folk who lack education.

      Remove the 1%, and spend money saved from paying them their obscene charges every time they issue a dollar bill, and you can educate the worlds masses and soleve the problem.

      The 1% really are the problem Lew.

      If we could get rid of the tyrants who want to enslave people, we could also get rid of the wars they cause.

      Great Hub, John.

      Let's see, with 7 billion people on earth the 1% that is ruining the planet comes out as seventy million. So we kill seventy million rich people and then the world is a better place, with six billion nine hundred thirty million poor people now 'free' but looking for someone to give them a job or a loan.

      Why do people have babies when they know they can't provide for them?

      Why should we encourage activity that only adds to the human burden?
