Remember live aid back in the 80's? Remember the pictures of starving nogs covered in flies? remember (((Bob Geldof))) demanding money and that awful concert that everybody pretends was great? Remember how so many gave so much to save the niglets? Remember how just a few years later there was ANOTHER famine and more begging?
Well this thread is to talk about what went wrong, why nothing really changed and how this affects the bigger picture.
By feeding, watering, medicating the starving population we allowed more of the population to survive.
By drilling more and deeper wells for them we continued to drain the aquifers instead of allowing them to recover.
By sending them replacement cattle and helping them rebuild their farms we increased desertification.
Our misplaced altruism, exploited by self publicists, has been a major factor in the ongoing ecological mess that is the horn of Africa and elsewhere. It is a major factor in continued famines that seem to occur two or three times a decade.
Our absurd altruism has created an ecological imbalance by allowing too many niggers to live than would other wise be sustainable in that environment. This has caused MORE suffering, if you must care for that hopeless race.
Sustain the nogs with resources they are unable to provide for themselves at the expense of the environment?
Stop sustaining their population, let it collapse and allow a more natural balance to reassert itself at the expense of our conscience?
The issue raised by this example applies globally: Altruism Vs Ecology.
