Thread Name: BS: Why do we need poverty?
Subject: RE: BS: Why do we need poverty?
Millions are dying from AIDS in Africa , but the people are too poor to buy the drugs to save their lives. When the government of South Africa tried to produce a cheap generic drug ( 11 cents a pill) they were sued by the capitalist bastards who hold the drug patents. If these were a million white folks in Toronto or New York would things be different? As long as poverty is not under our nose we can ignore it, but we all deserve to carry the shame.
