food for all…you make the call

Food for all is a necessity. Food should not be a merchandise, to be bought and sold as jewels are bought and sold by those who have money to buy. Food is a human necessity, like water and air, and it should be available. — Pearl S. Buck

What do you think about this statement? Do you agree or disagree?

There is no question that food is a human necessity; it’s a necessity for all living beings. But there are arguments to be made on both sides of the question.

What would happen if food was freely made available to everyone on the planet? Would the results be good? Would the positive benefits of universal access to nutrition outweigh any negative impact?

What would be the largest positive impact of food being made available to all without cost? What would be the most detrimental impact of universal food for all?

There would definitely be some amazing positive results of everyone being fed. Yet, along with the good there would be some negative effects, as well.

You make the call. The decision is yours. Should food be available to all without cost? Why?
