This is a great article from a book by Frances Moore Lappe and Joseph Collins that blasts common myths regarding world hunger:
We are led to believe that there is “too little food” for “too many people” – when we live in a day and age where there is an abundance of food, but it is our political systems and the oligopolies (a few global companies that control a huge market share) that have grown to dominate the “food scene” that don’t allow the food to be grown and distributed where they can benefit the hungry. The industrialization of agriculture has not helped but has been a detriment to both the environment & to those societies that have had their lands taken from them to mass produce poor quality food/feed/fuel that only benefits these large private interests .; and has really created a “hunger from plenty” situation – By removing the power of private wealth from the equation and letting the farmers themselves practice common sense agroecology; – only then, with true democracy at play, can we “feed the hungry” along with fixing the environment, (and even societies) that have been destroyed by this oligopolistic system.

Also China on the moon to mine Helium 3? this is the crux of the new paradigm…. new physics and real science. Delving further into Bach and the thinking mind; deliberate dumbing down of society thru education entertainment Music. Mozart, Shakespear and Einstein … how the death of Brahams was the end of real progressive science. Why Pop music not good, nor mathematics… limiting the brain.
