Can we really afford to make poverty history? If we did not have malaria, AIDS and all host of other nasties could we survive? If we aided Africa to raise itself to first world status could we still function? Im thinking along the lines of natural selection,survival of the fittest and natural wastage. Bit philosophical I know but cannot help thinking that our Govts and Bono realise that if we did come up with a cure-all then we would run out of space and resources in a couple of generations.
