A Christians Dilemma ‘World Hunger’
Almost every night on TV, I see organizations asking for help for the people of African Countries, showing starving little children. I see these images and it makes me want to cry. Then logic kicks in and I realize that this is not a long term solution to world hunger.
Since the famous ‘Feed The World’ campaign began in Ethiopia, population has grown from 33.5 million to over 78 million in just 25 years.
By 2050, the population of Ethiopia will be 177 million. Ethiopia is located on the parched and increasingly Protein-free wastelands of the Great Rift Valley. So, how much sense does it make for us to increase the adult population of what is already a vastly over-populated, environmentally devastated and economically dependent country?
How much morality is there in saving an Ethiopian child from starvation today, for it to survive to a life of brutal circumcision, poverty, hunger, violence and sexual abuse, resulting in another half-dozen such wide-eyed children, with comparably no life ahead of them?
So, why on earth should we do anything to encourage further catastrophic demographic growth in that country?
Where is the logic? There is none. Now they want to move to other countries to continue to breed and commit crime.
To be sure, there are two things saying that logic doesn’t count. One is my conscience, and the other is the picture, of a wide-eyed child, gazing, at the camera, which captures the tragedy of children starving.
Like most of you, I have stumped up the loot to charities to stop starvation there. The wide-eyed boy-child we saved, 20 years ago, is now a low IQ, AK 47-bearing moron, siring children whenever the whim strikes him and blaming the world because he is uneducated, poor and left behind.
Thanks to western food, Ethiopia’s population has more than doubled.
There is no doubt a good argument as to why we should prolong this predatory and dysfunctional economic, social and sexual system but I do not know what it is.
But Ethiopia is not alone in this madness.
Somalia, another 3rd world country of violent, AK 47-toting, girl-circumcising, permanently tumescent layabouts and housing pirates that are the scourge of the Indian Ocean. We now have almost an entire continent of sexually hyperactive, illiterate indigents, with tens of millions of people who only survive because of help from the outside world or allowances by the communist Governments they voted for, money supplied by borrowing it from the World Bank!
Somalia is not a humanitarian disaster; it is an evolutionary disaster. The current drought is not the worst in 50 years, as the BBC and all of the aid organizations claim.
It is nothing compared to the droughts in 1960/61 or 73/74. There are continuing droughts every 5 years or so.
It’s just that there are now four times the population; having been kept alive by famine relief, supplied by aid organizations, over the past 50 years.
So, of course, the effects of any drought now, is a famine. They cannot even feed themselves in a normal rainfall year.
Worst yet, the effects of these droughts, and poor nutrition in the first 3 years of a child’s life, have a lasting effect on the development of the infant brain, so that if they survive, they will never achieve a normal IQ.
Consequently, they are selectively breeding a population who cannot be educated which is the recipe for continued disaster.
We are seeing this impact now, and it can only exacerbate, to the detriment of their neighbors, and their environment as well. This scenario can only end in an even worse disaster; with even worse suffering, for those benighted people, and their descendants. Eventually, some mechanism will intervene, be it war, disease or starvation.
So what do we do? Let them starve?
What a dilemma for our Judaeo/Christian civilized morality.
AFRICA is giving nothing to anyone outside of Africa with the exception of AIDS, Ebola and other new diseases. Even as we see African states refusing to take action to restore something resembling civilization in Zimbabwe, the begging bowl for Ethiopia is being passed around to us again.
This dependency has not stimulated political prudence or common sense.
We are now, one way or another, giving aid to or investing in Africa, whereas Africa, with its vast Savannah’s and its lush pastures, is giving almost nothing to anyone, apart from AIDS and disease.
Meanwhile, Africa’s peoples are outstripping their resources and causing catastrophic ecological degradation.
Of course, giving might make you feel better, which is a prime reason for so much charity! But that is not good enough. For self-serving generosity has been one of the curses of Africa. It has sustained political systems which would otherwise have collapsed.
It is inspiring that Bill Gates’ has implemented a program to rid the continent of malaria, when, in the almost complete absence of personal self-discipline, that disease is one of the most efficacious forms of population-control by mother nature. If his program is successful, tens of millions of children who would otherwise have died in infancy will now survive to adulthood.
I know, we will let them all come here and there are literally millions queuing up who want a hand out, but taking in refugees because you feel sorry for them will end in the demise of any country taking part.
Now think about this and let it sink in.
No Middle Eastern Gulf State is taking any refugees, and the head of the United Nations Human Rights Commission is a Saudi Arabian!
