We rose from our primitive shelters, spent hours chasing game to feed ourselves or decided to harvest nuts and berries on a whim.
Ah, idealized history. My favorite.

Evidence, please.

You truly need to get over yourself.
Agreed. How dares he ask for evidence when it fits so perfectly with what you want to believe?

Life does not function like this. Most organisms do not engage in forced parasitism but symbiotic and voluntary relationships that absolutely advocate freewill on all parts. Birds do not engage in flocks nor mating rituals under gun-enforced mandates nor do wolves hunt in packs under the threat of injury or death. They do so because it is in the nature and freewill -- and remain it shall.

For on what basis would we define 'better' anyway?

This is what this whole board is fighting about. You're right. There is very little value to gain from this besides the exchange of perspectives.

so, someone, really-really, pretend to be "fighting" for something ?
like what ? flusing all humanity to favels http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Favela ? re-engineering human society ho hive/insect-alike ?
promote other sick alien fucks wet dreams ?[or other aliens servants favorite projects].

Over the past tens of thousands of years, 'poverty' has worked very well for the human species. We rose from our primitive shelters, spent hours chasing game to feed ourselves or decided to harvest nuts and berries on a whim. However, most of all we WERE happy with these basic lives.

A corpse is happy being a corpse, at least I assume since it never complains or has a negative thought. Is that what you want to be? Its very basic.

I agree with you Atlas.  Poverty (and welfare that inevitably goes along with it in today's society) is a joke.  Let people take care of themselves.  And let those who feel sorry for people who fail to take care of themselves take care of those people.  But don't force all of us to support the lazy people of the world who made themselves too fat to move.  That's just wrong.

One of the great injustices of our age is, the poverty. There is no such thing as the poor, the poor is not a person. The poor does not have an address, it doesn't wear clothes, it isn't a thing. It is what is called poverty people faces. Our efforts to combat poverty are often based on a misconception; that the poor must pull themselves. But that's not true, we have to recover by helping each other.
