Pictures taken in San Jose, California (U.S. of A.), say you?

The North Koreans are staving either. That's just another bit of false propaganda spread by stooges such as yourself.

But at least in a democracy we also have a chance to elect a good government. And any bad people w ...

Keep dreaming! Good governments don't exist in a democracy because those we elect are not qualified to run the country. Typically even if they were qualified to run a country the majority of the electorate are saddled with a government that they are opposed to.

But yes, in theory you can remove corrupt and generally useless politicians from office. The problem is, however, that it really wont make any difference to the bad government that you get saddled with because at best they represent a political party and at worst they represent business.

A thought for you - if you were running a business,  would you appoint your managers by taking a democratic vote amongst the staff or would you appoint those best qualified and trained to do the job.

I agree that in the case of a business it is best to appoint someone who knows what they are doing. However when an entire country is run that way the leaders seem more prone to corruption.

Food is so cheap to make with modern agricultural technology that is seems impossible for anyone to starve.  

We don't need "fresh" food; we need nutritious food, and nutritious food can be dried and powdered to allow for long shelf life.  Protein can be gotten from dried whey protein and soy protein.  fruits and vegitables can be dried and powdered for long shelf life.  Calcium can be created in tablet form.  

NO reason for starvation, unless your nation is low IQ.
