What are your thoughts on this...


don't you think the money used to feed war could have been used to feed people instead.

    You stop producing weapons to feed a lot of people you end up with a great many more people who need feeding. Then there's war. Break the need some people have to overpopulate the planet and get somewhere in all this.

    when someone is down they need a little push to get them up and going once again... maybe they can grow/live within their boundaries but need just a little push to get there. take all the tools away from a mechanic and he cannot open a bolt.

    very true ... once the degradation of society starts in a nation it goes downhill really fast. Its a shame to see so many countries facing this problem in this day and age.

    You made my point. I think the potential is there to feed all people. Developing the system to get the food to the people in need is the real challenge and I do not see an easy solution.

    There are many ways to save Polly ... but the main focus is the huge expenses on negatives such as wars rather than positives.

    very good point about poor remain poor due to large families.

    there was a European NGO who came to pakistan to help with flood victims. they stuffed money in sacks of flour and distributed it to the locals. There are ways to get money to people.

    I'm not going any further with any criticism, just making a point. :-) As ever, the political/business power brokers and the common people are poles apart.

    This is all very fine, but what do you do with all the surplus animals then? If we stop farming them, they will overpopulate and then they will need to be culled. The end result is worse for the animals than the current situation.

    What you say is the truth. And yet the GOP vehemently opposes abortions, and (female) contraceptive use for any reason. And the Pope condones the use of condoms for men to not impregnate women. What a world.
