    Question Why haven't we solved world hunger?

    Will post this in the NF forum too- but knowing we have the capacity as a planet and human species to END world hunger, and knowing that children die every day, and knowing we can forecast that more will die tomorrow, next month, next year etc- why don't we solve it?

    Is it greed?
    Is it apathy?
    Is is racism?
    Is it stupidity?

    Should "nature take it's course" and people should starve to level off the population?

    Or should we do something about it knowing that we can?

    The irrationality of experience has not yet demanded it.

    That's actually a very doubtable premise.

    I believe there is research on this by the World Health Organization (WHO.) I will try to find and post.

    I think the best way to work toward that goal is to work for the education of women around the world.

    *I'm reposting because I just noticed there's 2 threads.


    Because God clearly put some people in better life positions than others just because of our character before we came here.

    I don't actually agree with that, but some religious folks may try to justify this question with that argument.

    We haven't solved world hunger yet because it's too far ahead of its time more than anything.

    Educating women promotes equality and reduces tribalism and local violence, and provides a more stable environment for pro-social activities like agriculture.

    Its been solved in most of the world, in fact there's an obescity problem its been solved so well, so I'd say its not a case that it "cant't be solved" and there is of course poverty and poverty.
