Airborne Nation - "A Picture that is Worth a Thousand Actions, No Words Required"

“We know that a peaceful world cannot long exist, one-third rich and two-thirds hungry.” - Jimmy Carter

"A Picture that is Worth a Thousand Actions, No Words Required"

Chad P. Morrison, Thursday, August 13, 2009

The picture below is of an armed guard, wearing a bullet proof vest, guarding food outside of a barred window at a typical grocery store located in Detroit, Michigan. That's right, over 300,000 of Detroit's citizens are starving because although they are on food stamps, they cannot find a real grocery store. Not one major grocery chain operates in Detroit, a city of nearly seven hundred thousand people. Wake up America. Your government should not be trusted with anymore power. They do not give a damn about you or the rest of America. Maybe it is time we do something about those who are oppressing our nation.

The image at the top of this post, attributed to Getty Images, was a photo taken during the latter stages of the Vietnam War, in an undisclosed American city. Though the city is unknown, the message delivered by both images is dramatically similar. In the country with the most abundant wealth production that human kind has ever known, there are people that are still starving each day for want of sufficient supplies of food. Where has this nation gone wrong? What is the malfunction that created such glaring contradictions in what is supposed to be the most wealthy and free nation on earth? Once again, it is the false sense of scarcity that is created by the profit mongering rejects who are operating our "free" market capitalist economic system. They do not mind letting this happen because it is not happening directly to them. They make sure that they have what they need before they rob the poor of what little they have left. Further, Chad is right, something has got to be done to fix this abhorrent reality, and quickly!
