Wow. I like reading comments like this, it helps to remind me just how stupid and ignorant most of the world's population actually is.

We do not live in a world where you are either rich enough to live in America, or too poor to eat. There are hundreds of millions of people living in sustainable livelihoods (i.e. not starving) who's only chance for improving their situation in the long-term is through education.
