Every time you switch on a lightbulb, YOU'RE KILLING THE FUCKING PLANET.

OVER 9000 Hectares of Rainforest are cleared EVERY SECOND just so you can WIPE THE SHIT OFF YOUR FAT ASS.

Children in Africa (nevermind which country, THE WHOLE CONTINENT) have no food, no clean water, no electricity, no education, AIDS, and a life expectancy of 35 if they're lucky. AND IT'S ALL YOUR FUCKING FAULT, YOU CONSUMERIST WHORE.


Am I the only one who gets this impression from all the "charity" organisations that are out there? Aparently, the situation is improving, but you'd never guess.

I can't even turn on an electrical appliance without feeling guilty. And if I don't finish a meal, I always think "Children in Africa don't have food", and I don't even know what to do with it. I'm not gonna send them my table scraps.

Recently, some woman came to our school to encourage us to send gift boxes to under-priviledged children in eastern Europe. In her "encouraging" speech, she actually angrily ranted about how we all spend more money on entertainment every week than those poor children do for food in a month.

I don't know if "paranoid" is the right word, but does anyone else feel that all this has really gotten to their head a bit too much?

I send them the bill whenever I go out to eat, if they spend as much on food in a month as I do on entertainment, they can afford it easily.

I don't feel guilty for geographic luck... That's why they're stuck in the situation that they're in and that's why I have what I have... I mean I'm not going to lose sleep over it, but I'm not going to ignore it either.

Some of you don't seem to realise your wealth comes at the expense of poor nations.

That's why you should feel something.

Why is it a crime to enjoy life nowadays? I'm pretty welll-off in life and I'm not allowed to enjoy that because there are people who aren't well-off? Ha. No, I don't think so.
#18
Anybody who truly believes that turning off a lightbulb really makes a difference in those matters is a DUMBASS!!! Jesus J.F.K. Christ... for every lightbulb you turn off, I'm gonna turn on three.


EDIT:

Oh, that reminds me,

I just got this awesome 160w lighbulb in my workroom. It's a dream, and it eats up electricity like popcorn. Like, everytime I turn it on, I can almost sense those Eastern European children starving, or whatever they do all day.

So I'm supposed to live in darkness, not wipe my ass, and not eat?


I am all for environmental protection, but I am not going to quit using lights when I need them. I usually eat everything on my plate and I am not one to care about humanity in a global perspective so I don't feel too bad if I do throw a piece of food away.

because alot of the poor nations have dictatorships and are war-ridden, yet everyone always complains when someone steps in to help them.
#21
To put this bluntly....I don't care. I'm having enough trouble living my own life to be worried about somebody millions of miles away that I don't even know. Yes, it is sad, and yes, I'm glad there are people out there who help. But, I personally couldn't care less.

Some, others are paid unfairly low amounts for their produce and labour by Western countries.

We also sell them weapons to fuel their wars, and in the past given them enormous loans with enormous interest rates that crippled them financially. Some of those Dictatorships were even set up by Western countries (Iraq anyone).

We're also really lovely and give them "conditional" aid that they have to spend on goods and services from our countries.

hm, that's true, didn't think about that.

anyway, I think before I start worrying about other countries I would still worry about myself and my country first, because honestly I'm scared of the East taking away all the jobs of the West.

Stop saying we.

*I* have done none of those things. People of the same nationality have. I don't care. I help out with charities. I was out on the night after the Tsunami taking in donations and helped raised £5000 within a short time with a few people to help them. So it's not like I'm living in ignorance. But I am not going to lose sleep over something I can't help. What could I do? A 17 year old struggling through college? I have my own life to live, not theirs.

So Mr. High Horse.

What have you personally done that doesn't stop you from being a westerner huh?

If you want to help them, go a day in their shoes.

No electricity. No food. No financial support. Diseased. Dirty. Uneducated. Dying.

THEN tell me *I'M* the asshole. But the thing is, you won't do that. Because you're too ****ing comfortable as you are now.

YOU single handedly are not trying to solve poverty. You'll help whenever it's convenient for you. So shut the **** up.

At the end of the day, it's largely government/ leadership/ dictatorship problem's that cause all these issue's, dont get me wrong, i would happily give money to charity, if i knew it was going straight to them, and not in some managers pocket. But the scale of poverty is just to big to sort out with out world leaders actaully saying, hang on a minute, why dont we give them a helping hand and actaully make an effort, that doesnt involve us making a profit/ gaining territory/ puppet state and/ or gaining larges amounts of export.

The world leaders could sort this out with in a decade, easily, but it will never happen, becuase the leading countries need cheap labour/ items/ imports to remain the leading countries, so we can all give money away, but at the end of the day it'll take hundreds of years to get poverty stricken countries anyway near a fit state, and that is ofcourse, if the leader of the country makes an active effort and does not profit from all the charity money.

And to jumped up idiots who say "you westerners are the problem, it's your faul that kids are starving in africa".. No, no it is not, it is they're goverments fault, the worlds goverments fault for doing nothing, except gave a false report to media about helping out, when in fact they are profiting and making it worse.
