Many people still fail to realize that food security is intractably interwoven into our global security. A hungry world is an insecure world. Global security would be greatly enhanced by ensuring that hunger is eradicated in our lifetime.
The cost of ending hunger is actually almost insignificant. This is true when measured against just the military spending of the United States, not even factoring in the defense budgets of the other developed countries of the world.
Ending hunger should be a major strategy in achieving a safer and more secure world. It’s not as sexy as billion dollar bombers, but it is far more moral and a a hell of a lot more cost effective.
