    why not end world hunger?

    Today I wrote a hub where I said that a British study indicates the need for a revolution in food production worldwide to the next 20 years.
    But how does we understand this project if you know that there is surplus in Europe, where he throws out to eat to keep prices? How should be understood that there is an excessive number of obese in the USA? And how should be understood that there are countries with hunger but with wealth to buy weapons to keep the war?

    Excess food?  Ending world hunger? 

    What is excess food?  I live in the US and personally find that I buy what I can eat.  I do not go hungry.  Is that a bad thing?  The US has sent endless streams of money to other countries that are stricken by hunger, tornado, tsunami, hurricanes, earthquakes. 

    Ending world hunger?  Is this even possible.  There are people who are hungry, but they have cows running wild in their country.  They will not kill them because of their religious beliefs.  I am not saying that this is a bad thing.  But, should I donate more money to them so they can eat.  Find alternatives.  I am all for sending and paying Americans to go to these hungry countries to teach them how to hunt and grow their own food.  But, I am not a huge fan of handouts.   Sorry.

    The free market economy (which is actually very tightly controlled by the central banks and not free at all) needs poor starving people in the world so that the marginally better off people here in the West (First World whatever) are pathetically grateful for what little they have and conned into thinking things like 'capitalism actually works' and 'gee - aint our government doing a great job'.

    We could put an end to hunger in the world - but it will take a revolution in more than just the production of food to achieve it.

    The people who could do something about it would have to actually care first, and they do not care; in fact, David Rockefeller has stated time and again that population reduction is one of his goals, and he's one of the world's wealthiest and most powerful men (he's got so much more power than any U.S. president that there is no comparison),. . . .so you tell me, do you think it's going to happen?

    Have you ever noticed that on the backs of US currency it clearly says in plain Latin, "Order Out Of Chaos," why don't you tell me what that means, and why it's on the back of the American Dollar?

    It means that the money elite DO NOT CARE!

    The world leaders at large and people in wealthy nations, are aware of nations not crying for food but dieing without food. Your picture depicts well, but the world will see through it as though it does not exist. This society. Food must be shared. Give the surplus away. I too do nor believe in handouts, for that attitude of dependency will kill them Give for the moment, and the inter governments system of preparing the poor to become self sustaining must take place simultaneously. Preparing for the future. It is easy to continue receiving but the beggar mentality must stop. Time effort and money is needed to make the poorer nations sustainable on their  own two feet and help them build reserves for the next urgent need for food supplies..
