Don’t forget that, even if you manage to distribute the food, you end up destroying domestic producers. No one wants to grow rice, for example, if rice can be had for “free.”
Very true. The point is that the liberal knee-jerk reaction of “feed the poor” has an immense emotional appeal, but in and of itself just simply doesnt work. Really, the only way of solving the problems of some of these very poorest nations is for their entire society to be systematically reorganised. And then of course, you are accused of “recolonisation”.
