The government CAUSES and EXTENDS the problem of poverty. Even in the USA. Not just in India.
Here's a wonderful debrief on the utterly useless Rio(+20) conference by none other than the brilliant environmentalist and (classical) liberal Lord Monckton.
I took hundreds of pictures from moving cars/taxis during my India visit.
I was zooming into one of the pictures just now to look more closely at what was happening in a part of that picture, and discovered a family eating their meal NEXT TO A WASTE BIN. This picture is taken on a main road in Mumbai.

You can zoom into the family even further (in the bigger image). They appear to live there, next to the waste dump.
I feel so ashamed I could die. Tear of sorrow will never be enough.
This is pure animal life that we have allowed our ROTTEN leaders and politicians to create for our people. Swear words are coming to mind, but let's keep cool and work together to ensure that these evil monsters are removed from India's leadership positions.
That little girl deserves BETTER. MUCH, MUCH BETTER.
