What Has Soaring Food and Fuel Prices Got to Do with Human Rights?
Whose fault is it If the poor can’t afford food? Give them more money and you create a bigger problem: Inflation.
It’s not the job of your government to control these things you know, they have more important things to do: National security and the Economy (!)
The poor don’t come with engines and wheels; you can’t drive them like cars. Why should they get all the grains at dirt cheap prices, when biofuels bring in a decent profit and help turn the wheels?
Neither the UN nor the so-called global relief organizations seem to care about the plight of the world’s poor. So, once again, do the poor have human rights?
