From Occupy Wall Street
Tags: occupy, poverty, starvation
Even when the starving are in our own country, we have some who don’t know and don’t care, if they did know. Outside of our country, a missionary named George Dowdell notes that there is so much corruption in leadership in many countries, that intended food/ money help does not reach its destination.
Yes, it is sad that greed trumps poverty and hunger when there is an abundance of food. Thanks for the comment!!
I’m not convinced that the effects of corruption, noted by BTG, is much less in this country than elsewhere. To call ourselves a civilized and humane country, even a christian one, is hypocrisy of the highest order.
It certainly isn’t much less. One only has to look as far as Detroit to see this in action. Growing income inequality is one of the main facets of inverted totalitarianism. “Developed” countries are getting there…so have just arrived sooner than others.
Barney, you are not incorrect. Maybe we dress it up better here, so it looks more legitimate. Yet, Hosni Mubarak had a net worth of $70 Billion when deposed while Egyptians were living on $2 a day and bribery and nepotism is more standard fare in doing business abroad than here. The pawns are the ones who get screwed in either place. BTG
