Most of the world's suffering is down to three things.|
Name your poison and the poor of this planet will be trodden on. It's politically expedient not to take on the world's religions as that means that the major and world's sole superpower will have to take on a good chunk of their own population and that won't be popular at all back home.
Politics. Let's be honest here, the world's politicians are pretty much owned by the Transglobal corporations and their other big end of town friends. Politicians are just talking heads these days and if you have a close look at most you will find they are funded by the same businesses on both sides of the fence. All governments are owned to a greater or lesser degree and the shadowy and often very murky world of deal making is rife with back scratching and cash or power for favours. Corruption is a kind word. Of course there isn't just corporate ownership, there's ideologically based evil too. Waging war on a nation because you don't like their political regime or the way their leader behaves. It's just so childish in reality but it leaves in it's wake a trail of death, destruction and misery to millions of people who are caught in the machinations of the political machine.
Greed - Profit above humanity, Just look at a company like Monsanto, it controls damn near 47% of the global seed crop and have a long well documented history of abysmal levels of honesty and corporate responsibility. Then there are the major military suppliers, USA, UK, Israel, China, Russia, Ukraine. Each one makes billions a year from hardware sales to various regimes around the world. The there's plain old fashioned greed, i want your land style or I want your water. Hello Israel you deserve special mention as a country that has imposed upon millions of Arabs the same levels of terror imposed upon you by the Nazi's. The only difference is the Israeli's act with relative immunity at this time.
Religion. Every major Religion (Christianity, Judaism, Islam, Animism) is guilty of promoting people to have excessively large families. India for example tried a whole raft of methods in the 1960s and 1970s to reduce the birth rate to little effect and the result today is a country that suffers as a whole terribly from overpopulation. Religion is also at the bottom of many of the world's wars along with politics.
I doubt if we will have a fair system anytime soon, though humanity deserves it as a whole and if there was any justice in the world no one would starve or die as a result of human greed.
