    How can we make Goverments more aware and take action against world hunger and poverty

    What is a good way to make the people aware and take a PEACEFULL action so that the Goverments finally decide to really do something about it?

    It is not up to government.  It is up to YOU.  YOU, with your stupid religions and cultures breed like effing cats, rats, and dogs with no thought of how to support and raise the little rugrats. Your "need to breed" leads to outstripping resources such as good water, good cropland, minerals, oil, etc.  That is one cause of poverty.

    YOU with your whining for government to "fix" things.  That is the other major cause of poverty.  You look to so-called leaders in government to wipe your tears and buns.  That leads to either socialism/communism, corporatism or fascism. … the-answer … stitutions

    can,t be done in the US for they to working hard taking everything from Americans and giving it to the top one percent and who kill more people than government. there care nothing for world hunger and poverty save for the money that they can get out of them. and peace is what the government say is peace. propaganda have con American into thinking that they can get thing while not knowing that heavily in debt  to have something for a short time is  like having nothing at all. and when they come take what you was buying, the debt still stay. insane. American Federal Government is ran by Wall Street and they both going to drain the people and we see what next when there nothing left to take.

    I agree with you dabeaner (to a certain degree) I like how you have for tdescribed the United States of America in your response and also in the hubs that you wrote, which by the way are excellent but, my question still remains "How can we get the Goverment (not only the America) to get involved.  We vote them in so we should express our right to vote them out.  If we can all help, feed, clothe the victims of a sunami, tornado, katrina and etc...  Why the heck can't we take care of the less fortunate ones or better yet the ones that do not have any resource that can be exploited or traded with arms.
    Your conclusion to this question seems to be a very save and conventional way of turning your back on the problem and finding comfort in blaming the mass.
    The reason that I look for the so-called leaders in goverment is simply because it's their JOB.  One would look to a mechanic for automobile problems, so we should and are looking to the leaders for answers; now if they can not fix it then move out and give somebody else a chance.  I'm sorry to say but your comments sound either Socialist/Communist/Facist,Corporatism is a good one coming from America.

    Dabeaner's great ... found myself laughing to tears reading his comments. All "YOU, with your stupid religions" are in trouble lol. Luckly I can squeeze outta this one since I am as some have called me an "unbeliver" (lol again).
    Mr. Yvens, perhaps you missed the "you" part in Dabeaner's message. Forget about the government and/or the police to save you. The government is not for you and me, the government is for those who bring cheques and/or cash. So unless you have lobbyists working for you on Capitol Hill, you're outta luck amigo. Nobody in government gives two you know what about you or me or any like us. About the police ... here on the cop cars it says "To serve and protect". Balls ... it's more like "To harass and bully". I had more fireweapons pointed at me (by cops) two weekends ago while holding a camera then if I was shooting photographs in Mogadishu. And I have the photos to prove it.
    Back to the "You" part now: it is up to you and I and every other single  person on this planet to take back our governments if we want them to work for us. We need to get rid of the politicians in power, we need to change some laws that they have made for themselves and so on. For now, our governments have been highjacked by corporations and bankers who control them through the people that lobby for them. We need people to go out on the streets ... look at Greece and follow. It is up to You.
    This is your statement about Mr. Dabeaner I think "turning your back on the problem and finding comfort in blaming the mass."
    I personally do not think he is turning his back on the problem that would be ignorance and he didn;t ignore the question - he gave an answer. Perhaps it can be said that you looking at governments to solve the problem of poverty is your way of turning your back on the problem. (You can look at it that way too ...)
    The thing is, Dabeaner is right. It is up to YOU (by "you" please understand that it means everyone not just you) to act. And he was right about the comment of over-breeding. We are multiplying at such a rate that basic resources such as fresh water will become scarce in the next century. As we multiply, we diminish this planet's resources and there will not be enough of everything for everyone. Thirty thousand kids die each day of hunger related diseases ... how can people have more kids when so many kids die each day because they have no food? That is my question!

    poverty and hunger will always exist. it is people who cause it to themselves. we can give third world countries all the aid we want but unless the citizens start taking care of themselves nothing will change. though this may sound crule, i honestly believe the best thing to do is any country that isn't able to take care of itself or at least improve their lives with the help already given to them, we should just leave them alone. either they will smarten up or slowly die away.

    It's a sad answer, but they do not care, never have and never will. It is up to us as human being to take things into our own hands and organize to help these people out. In America we only hear about the people and children around the world that are suffering, yet theirs millions of children alone in this country that go hungry daily and in the summer time it's even worse because these kids aren't getting the meals they would at school.
