Fred Banks Posted about 1 year ago What can governments do to end poverty in their countries? Is a solution possible under capitalism? The solution has to begin with capitalism. "Developed Countries" have the technological capacity to produce enough resources to feed, provide shelter, clothing and medical needs for those of us who are less fortunate while increasing the number of employment opportunities for those in developed countries. It is dissapointing that while some countries struggle with severe hunger, poverty and unstable living conditions; capitalistic nations fight health issues related to obesity. Bill Clinton stated some time ago "that people will do the right thing when we are left with no other recourse / when situations become most desperate". I think we need to ask ourselves, ?Desperate for who? We can not continue to allow "the few" to determine / drive our morality. We cannot continue to be partnered with the systematic population control through genecide. Our silence is our support. Stand up, Speak up and Start change. What we don't do now will only delay our own demise.
