Worldwide Food Security

Entrepreneurial Politics

Who Pays? Large businesses or non-profit organizations who voluntary give foodstuffs or collect money to purchase goods

Who Benefits? People worldwide who are without food, specifically in many third world countries

Liberals feel... that everyone in the world has the right to be fed, and that Americans are obligated to ensure that everyone has the right under the clause of the Declaration of Independence stating that everyone has the right to "life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness." They believe that not providing for these malnourished human beings is a violation of the humanitarian code and that it should be considered a crime in world courts.

Conservatives feel... that it is the individual responsibility of various nations to provide for their designated citizens. They believe that Americans should not carry the weight of the world hunger on its shoulders and, instead allow for other nations to become self-sufficient. Conservatives are also against governments who take too much of an active role in the day-to-day lives of citizens around the world, not purely Americans; therefore, creating a feeling of resentment against nations' governments putting food into the mouths of people everywhere, specifically when the cost of that process comes out of the governments' budgets.
