Is it America’s Responsibility to Feed the World

We sure hear a lot about all the people in the World who make less than a dollar per day. We hear stories about those who live in the slums of Indonesia, India, China, Africa, South America, Central America, Bangladesh, Haiti and Palestine. Indeed, many believe it is the wealthier countries responsibility to feed them all and care for them; this simply is not so.

In fact it is those people’s responsibility to stop breeding like rats. When the basic foundations of civilization are not taken care of;

  • Water
  • Sewer
  • Trash Collection
  • Education
  • Roads

Then there can be no meaningful life when you pack humans in like sardines. What is unfortunate is that these plighted areas of our World are exploited and thrust onto our television sets we see horrific images in order to make us feel guilty and send money. The truth is that you cannot help people who will not help themselves. When leaders of such nation-states neglect the basic fundamentals and foundations of human civilizations these are the results.

It should come as no surprise to anyone what is going on in the world, as the problem just keeps growing and the breeding of people into the slums is never ending. Everyone agrees something must be done. But sending money into the areas is not the answer. The solution is multi-faceted and it begins with the fundamentals. It begins with accountability of leadership and responsibility of the people.

The United States is not responsible for these problems in the world, nor should it take the blame or brunt of the burden. Infrastructure must be built before a million people set up slums outside major cities and start breeding like rats. Sending cash into a rat-infested feces money hole is no solution. That is not humanitarian aid that is throwing good money after bad and allowing the problem to continue.

For those who cannot handle the reality of these situations and choose to blame the United States, perhaps we should send you a mirror. I certainly hope this article is of interest and that is has propelled thought. The goal is simple; to help you in your quest to be the best in 2007.
