Sometimes i don't actually want starving african children to survive.
I know it's not normal, but I want to hear your thoughts on this.
There's a large part of Africa that's considered "third world". What marks their poverty is that they have high infant mortality rates, no electricity or running water. And maybe, it's better that way.
Consider, for one, the technological decadence that marks first-world countries. We produce massive amounts of pollution in our cities, with our cars and our factories. We consume huge amounts of electricity, and the fossil fuels used to create said electricity are in dwindling amounts.
Now, imagine if all of today's third-world nations had access to all of the resources we have. There would be more strain on our resources than there already is, and much more pollution. Consider the birth rate. Because of the new availability of medical treatment, more African children survive, but the mothers have children at the same frequency as before, so they have to spread supplies more thinly. This does not solve anything.
And if a lot of African mothers got care for their children suddenly, population would skyrocket. We can barely support our population as is, let alone with an additional billion.
It may not be the politically correct way of thinking, or the traditionally moral way of thinking. But if third world countries had everything we do...would it really be the best decision for all of us?
