If only we can figure out a way to make ending poverty as profitable as making war… :/

With poverty gone, people would be less likely to turn to religion. It is just making sure the money goes to the correct people.

How much of it did the USA spend?

It probably is more profitable but doesn’t satisfy the ego the way war does.

If only life was that simple Mr Foam. But you know better, don’t you?

by “the world” do you mean any hegemonic republic in particular?

Sometimes, understanding that priorities are seriously misplaced really is that simple. 😛

It was a rhetorical question to get people to think. I think thinking is so important. What do you think?

Surprised the USA is under 50%, also surprised how low the Russian 5.2% is.

Good, then you’re in the right place then. We need more thinkers, particularly critical thinkers, and less ideologues. 😛

The world is a complex place and there really are no simple solutions as implied in your post. Will poverty disappear if there was no war? There has always been conflict and poverty. I suspect both will be with us as long as we exist and will not be solved by simple posts.

George, are you kidding? Are you new around here? 😛

I am always saying that exact thing on this page. The world is a VERY complicated place. However, that doesn’t, and shouldn’t, deter anyone from seeing that there are logical solutions that really aren’t all that complicated. Is it really that complicated to focus just 10% of what the world spends on WAR to eradicate poverty? Really?? No, it’s not. The problem is that the will to do so does not exist. The wherewithal to solve these problems, however, does.
