What is wrong with our society today?

This is a QA on Quora.

Absolutely nothing. It is obviously humane and compassionate to allow 20,000 children to die of malnutrition, conflict and disease everyday.

As I eat my MacDonald’s Burger and consider buying another I look around me and I note that some people have so many they can hardly walk.

I do not see my Government doing anything about the deaths of so many children. The Pope shakes the hands of all the World Leaders who are responsible for the World’s Economies. Is that a sign of approval?

Therefore, it must be OK for me to have plenty to eat and the Children in Africa to die.

I do not see thousands or even million protesting so the people of the Western World and all those who have plenty to eat must consider it to be OK.

I do not hear the Ayatollah of Iran saying it is not a good thing. The Chief Rabbi of Israel cannot be heard saying the World must not be so greedy and selfish.

I have tried to do something about the screaming child who in Africa has a swollen mouth and tongue chocking her. Her muscles wasted with bones so fragile they cannot take her weight without breaking. I thought it wrong that all she ever knew was pain before she will die of Aids.

But nobody took any notice of my writing with new ideas and systems to save her life and the lives of so many others- not one member of Government anywhere in the World or one member of the Faiths of God. Not one Journalist. Nobody, zero,
