End Poverty Globally

Postby DoomYoshi on Sun Oct 02, 2016 4:33 pm

Concise description:
  • End poverty
  • End hunger
  • End war

Specifics/Details:
  • make it so there are no poor people; income inequality is minimized; everyone can afford CC
  • make it so that food isn't wasted and people can eat
  • stop all the global conflicts so that everyone is friends

How this will benefit the site and/or other comments:
  • more people will be able to afford Conquer Club
  • with less time looking for food, people will be able to play Conquer Club more
  • with no real wars, people will turn to war games like Conquer Club to blow off some steam

Without poverty, how can the working class be happy and feel somewhat superior? Would they not unite and turn against the rich?

It's all relative. What's called poverty in one country may not be considered poverty in another. Ergo there will always be poverty.

what if the poor were all just killed, instead? this would also help w/CO2 emissions and ease some of the strain on food resources. I really can't see a downside here...

I know. With Mr. Swickdick on vacation, you figure you have to troll twice as hard to fill the gap.

You're right. I was initially cynical and attacked a strawman via sarcasm, but the secret message inbetweenst my words is:

Poverty is not relative in every context. The US has a definition of poverty here, and other nations do as well. I don't believe that this definition of poverty is entirely accurate (I have my own criticisms), but poverty can be defined in a myriad of ways, so stating that there will always be poverty because it's relative is really generalist and therefore not always true.

BUT RDS IF ANY DEFINITION IS JUST AS VALID AS THE OTHERS, THEN AREN'T ANY ATTEMPTS TO DEFINE POVERTY USELESS?

That depends who you ask, but I would consider that there is already a collective understanding of what poverty means on different parts of the globe and that definition is wont to change. And to an extent I agree with you: are there different levels of poverty, therefore shouldn't poverty be evaluated on a continuum, and not binary as "you are in poverty" vs "you are not?" Probably, but:

How does that relative nature change how the issue is approached if it's true? What if it's not?
How does it change your attitude towards the issue in each situation?

Overall, I don't think it changes the way global poverty should be approached, and I'm not inclined to believe you think so either, so I don't see the merit in the statement other than to, well, feel so intelligent for saying it.

Someone poor but surrounded with 1,000 real friends/family(not facebook/twitter) ,who would die for you...As someone with Billions, you can't go any where without being bothered. You can't trust anyone,because ,you think they are after your money...You die alone,state takes your money... :lol:

The solution itself is so simple, but the more research is still needed before it goes into production.

Release a lethal pathogen that only affects those living in poverty. Poof, next day all that is left is the rich! Course that means rich people are going to have to get shit done all by themselves, which leads to a whole 'nother host of problems...

Then, by definition, the rich people below a certain threshold become poor, depending who you ask.

I think the question in general shouldn't strictly be, "how do we eliminate poor people", but "how do we sustainably improve their lives and overall wellbeing"
