Why should we feed the hungry? Is wanting to feed the hungry helping us or hurting us? We increase food production to feed the "hungry". The more food, the more we reproduce. The more we reproduce, the more people. The more people, the less food to go around. People begin to starve. The more starving, the more we increase food production to feed them. Are we really helping them? Might we be actually allowing them to produce more to starve? The more starving, the more we feel obligated to feed them. There can only be so many resources. We are on the ascent our carrying capacity. Maybe we should start trying to control the population.
