Paper on Food Distribution and Greed

             'There is enough for everyone's need but not for everyone's greed' is indeed an ingenious statement by an ingenious man called Mahatma Gandhi. There is no doubt about how true this statement is and there are many ways one can prove it.

             Nature was made in such a way that there will be a balance in the eco-system and everybody gets enough what they need in proportions for them to live a good life. Unfortunately, Man, being greedy, have taken advantage of this fact. They want more than what they need and would go out of their way to get it. They take more than what they give. The more they have, the more superior they feel. The fortunate ones would be able to get their hands on what they want, leaving the others not with a little something but with less than nothing at all. Little do they know that by doing so, they're bringing trouble and corruption only upon their own kind.

             Food distribution in this world is a perfect example to support the above statement. Most people would have already known, from the media such as television and newspapers, about how millions of people in this world are suffering from starvation because of the lack of food. Some may say that it is just a famine, a natural disaster that nobody has control of. Others say that there is just not enough food in this world for everyone. However, if one comes to think of it carefully, is there really not enough food? It is more than just a famine that is causing this unfairness. If every single person were to give a portion of their food that they do not need, surely there will be more than enough to go around to every human being living on this Earth. Of course, taking is much easier that giving. It is because of human greed that there is not enough food for everyone.

             This unfair food distribution is also caused by the greed for more money. For example, in Africa, there is actually sufficient food for everyone. However, there is not enough for export so that the country can earn more money.
