Re: Please help me I want to live too. (DA Morgan)
I stopped caring, in a sense, when I discovered that the problem had nothing to do with lack of food but rather was wholly related to their government's wanting them to starve.
I agree completely with your assertion but "stopped caring"!? Nah, not you...
When the moral indigation is sufficient, especially from the so-called pro-lifers, that they are willing to force autocratic governments to distribute the food.
Don't raise the strawman. It distracts from your point, which is controversial enough without the mischaracterization. So to address the point – what force are you willing to apply?
Then I will start caring in dollars. Until then, no matter how bad the problem, I will not let those governments intentionally starve people so they can steal money.
Your point may require you to care in greater terms than money, depending of course on whether or not you have sons of delicate yet conscriptable years.
