The primary goal of this site is to provide mature, meaningful discussion about the Vancouver Canucks. However, we all need a break some time so this forum is basically for anything off-topic, off the wall, or to just get something off your chest! This forum is named after poster Creeper, who passed away in July of 2011 and was a long time member of the Canucks message board community.

I had the Joho witnesses come to the door during the africa famine relief flavour of the month days and start their spiel with "Don't you think it is wonderful what man is doing for its fellow mankind with the famine relief being sent to africa."

I looked them square in the eye and said, " no, it is simply a bandaid solution. Clearly the land can not support the population and people need to die to get it to a level where the land can support the population. Sending food is not sustainable and only prolongs the agony."

They quickly said, "it is so nice to meet someone with a point of view" and turned an left.

A month later I saw them going door to door again and as they got to my place they crossed the street.
Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

I'm amazed that so many people choose to be complete twats.

And what you said is true.

I am glad we do not get a lot of those people around anymore.

Africa as a continent has very low population density though.

The main cause of African famines is war. War often prevents harvesting, and when it leads to people fleeing their homes, the whole agricultural process gets wrecked.

This in combination with ineffective practices and poverty.

But you’re right that sending food is a bandaid solution and worse than that; it tends to make the long term situation worse.

Most African farmers are small scale subsistence farmers. They have a small plot that feeds their family and gives a little surplus that they can sell at the market in a nearby city.

But when the city folks get food for free, they buy less at the farmers’ market, which leads to more and more farmers giving up and moving to the city slums. And so the country produces less and less food and gets increasingly dependent on foreign aid.
Whatever you do, always give 100 %!
