A World army to supply food free for all.
This whole monetary crisis & the expected recession would not be so serious if it were not fraught with the real danger of many people dying for lack of food. As unemployment & business failure grows inexorably, fewer people will be able to buy food. There are many soup kitchens & feeding places but they too will be finding it more difficult to source food.
The situation is very similar to wartime, & we will have to take action similar to that which some people had to during the wars. Except that the changes will be permanent. We cannot take temporary measures hoping the 'war will go away. The 'old times will never return.
Everyone now needs to find ways of producing food. Whole communities need to join together to do this, so that major facilities can be constructed. All areas where it is possible to produce food must be converted to food production as efficiently as possible. All the latest & best techniques for growing must be employed to get maximum yields at the least effort. Everyone must try & produce enough for others. If we find ourselves being the only ones with any food we would be very vulnerable.
This is a global issue & everyone must take part. The commercial growers will be unable to operate profitably so they might as well join in. The objective will be to create a glut of food which can sustain everyone. Eventually, we can form into a volunteer army which will take over all food production & distribute it to everyone on the planet. Of course governments will have to be involved, But the overall objective will be guarantee adequate food supplies to everyone for ever. Everyone will be expected to contribute, say, 250 hours each year. Of course, they will receive all their food for life.
This seems like dream, but imagine the resulting effect on the whole world. Never having to worry about going hungry, the major stresses we suffer will diminish & this will automatically promote World peace.
Comments please.Any useful suggestions?
