Much of the suffering in the World is due to poverty.
Many say this is because there is not enough food to go around.
I disagree......
The World has enough resources to feed everyone!
China supports 20% of the population in the world using, only 8% of the world's arable land.
Doing the math, ALL the people in the world could be fed on only 35-40% of the worlds arable land.
This is ONLY land.
What about the oceans, lakes, rivers and other water resources?
How much food could be produced from this rich resource?
So it would be so easy to feed everyone!

So why does poverty still exists?
Short answer:
Money
Do rich people go hungry?
NO!!!!!
ONLY poor people go hungry.
And since the rich have more money than the rest of the world, this disparity is clear and unreasonably unfair.
It is the reason our lives are controled by a few.

We as people have a duty to address and solve this glaring problem.
In that proccess we can overcome many other issues connected to it.

There is far too much food wasted throughout the world.

Also China is moving too much land away from agriculture and too many people away from farming

Life by itself is unfair and you are fooling yourself if you think that is going to change.

Certainly it is a man-made problem.

The following factors are the main causes of poverty.

- For a family, some people are too lazy to work hard, and don't think smart.

In China, many poor people have nothing to do, but have babies. The poorer they are, the more babies they have.
They fail to afford every kid good education with the excuse of poverty, and try to grab the compassion from other people.  

However this is not the patent of Chinese. It exists in the UK too. The British government provides those lazy people with too many subsidies. Some of them even quit their jobs, because they can enjoy more from their government.

- Invasion, colonalisation, exploitation made a country poor.

Before Opium Wars,  China was a rich country. Later China was colonized and torn apart by the UK, France, Germany, Japan, ...

And how did those European colonists help Africans except for trafficking them to North America and Europe?

- the leadership of a country

I am proud of our leadership from Mao, Deng, to Xi that turned our country which were badly off into a 2nd economy.

To eradicate poverty is to educate, instead of donating.

Education helps but so does an infrastructure to easily move those foodstuffs around. Without out that the food will never get to where it is needed.
