We all know that there are many world problems that are not driven by poverty.
However we would be safe to say without contradiction that the majority are connected to its very existence.
Current world conflict.
Modern day Slavery
We the silent majority would do well to remember what happens in history when the majority remained silent. Communist Russia were responsible for the murder of 20 million. The Chinese communism managed a staggering 70 million. The Japanese 12 million. The Rwandans – God knows. There is no getting away from that the 20th century has had to be the most violent in human history
Lastly anyone who doubts that this issue of poverty is not serious is contributing to the passiveness that allowing the problem to expand.
We are silent – and then silenced.
