Default Re: Define Poverty...

Ok let me try rephrasing things a bit.

A video I once watched had a quote that has stuck with me. To paraphrase, it went: The Sun gives light and warmth to everyone. It doesn't see who is poor or who is rich.

Can we use technology to raise food / water / clothing / shelter to the level of sunlight?

(Actually - water is mostly free in most developed nations already... can we do the same thing for basic food too? And then for clothing and shelter?)

Maslow's hierarchy of needs pyramid has 5 levels. Can we take care of the bottom level for everyone - no matter if he is good or bad - or smart or dumb?

(For Michael - should we? If not - why not?)

* I'm not talking communism over here. I'm not talking equal benefits for everyone. I'm not saying people can't buy Evian water if they want to. I'm just saying - can we make tap water free for everyone in the world? And can we make other basic survival amenities free for everyone? Rich folks can buy upgrades - no restrictions on that.
