U.S. News & World Report - Since early 2007, when food prices began marching noticeably upward, there have been violent riots in more than a dozen countries, growing malaise in developed areas, including the United States, and a fluid debate about the origins of the spike. On the last point, a consensus has emerged. A slew of factors—record fuel prices, ethanol production, unprecedented demand, the effects of climate change—have been blamed, creating a sort of perfect storm for the world's food supply.
RLCC Comment: We been calling it "selfishness," "greed, violence, and depravity," since day one. We've been calling for voluntary land reform (donations to purchase land; translate mammon into productive farm land) to get people (Christians, the poor, and others who want to) back onto the land raising food in an environmentally sound, organic manner, to give to the people at no charge and starting with the poorest of the poor. It's called the Christian Commons Projectâ„¢. Are you with me/us? Will you help? I can't do it alone. No one can do anything alone.
This site covered every factor mentioned in the article above long before the mainstream even had a blip about them. The mainstream is still way behind the curve. It takes long-term vision to bring forth. Let us bring forth together to show the world how it ought to be done. That's what Jesus did. He showed the way. He said feed his lambs and sheep. He meant that in both body and spirit. Let's do it. Come on.
The greedy will never do what's right. They can't. They don't know how. They don't know what's right. They don't have the spirit. Even when they say that we're talking about the ideal, so they know it would be best, they can't bring themselves to do it. We can though.
