Why are people starving to death in Somalia, Ethiopia and Kenya?

The world has no shortage of food. Americans, Canadians and Europeans are dying of diabetes, cholesterol and obesity. The western countries are consuming too much food at the expense of the rest of the planet. Just to feed our appetite for meat requires huge amounts of agricultural land to grow plant-based feed to fatten livestock animals.

We are on a downward spiral. We treat our pet rocks and gardens better than children and people experiencing real human suffering.

Decisions are made all for the sake of money, power and privilege, or should I say control of oil and resources.

 

I hate to go all Jesus on you, but Christ did say that it is easier for a camel to go through an eye of a needle than a rich man to enter the Kingdom of God. This biblical quote makes a lot of sense. Greed is a sin and it has played a major part in shaping the world and its citizens into either haves or have nots.
