    People can live on $1 a day because they have access to food & resources that are free. Civilisation, Capitalism changes that. Income is meaningless if you do not also specify how much you need to live.

      Perhaps that’s good Socialism 101 old mate, but $1 a day is not living, it’s existing – a short and usually backbreaking existence.

    Bravo! This is exactly true. We have had an unprecedented era of peace and prosperity, and it’s up to all of us to keep it going.
