So the prose is a bit florid, it’s not a dissertation! I’m looking at it like a picture, which it is. It is not a potted history of the curriculum vitaes of either John F Kennedy or Julian Gascoigne or for that matter, Harold Macmillian. Macmillan, who by the way, famously stated in a speech 1960 that the “winds of change” were upon the British Empire, marking the period of rapid decolonisation resulting in the de facto end of the British Empire. Macmillan, the successor of Eden, whose crisis in the Suez would mark the first flexing of US diplomatic power and a realisation by French and British political elites that the way of empire was dead. Macmillan, the last UK prime minister born in a Victorian age when the Empire was at its most vital. Look it up, anonymous reddit person who feels the need to go round telling everyone they used to be a history teacher. Moving onto the photo itself, it’s a visual feast from which you can draw plenty of symbolic meaning. Some of the best photographs of the 20th century were showing X or Y doing this unremarkable thing, and yet they captured a moment of deeper meaning. Silly or not, you can infer symbolic meaning by combining composition with your knowledge of events as they were before the art was created and as they played out.
News organizations, and particularly television news, are not giving enough attention to the situation of hunger in the world. While a full discussion on the reasons for this is beyond the scope of this article, some points can be made. Obviously, news organizations of America TV, do not believe that world hunger is a great story and that hunger is a daily occurrence. I suspect that from the perspective of these news organizations, that 24,000 people a day die of hunger is not great news enough. When 1,386 were killed by Hurricane Katrina, the news coverage was enormous. Five months after Hurricane Katrina hit New Orleans news organizations were still squeezing TV all I could get out of this story. Granted this was a tragedy obviously, but an even greater tragedy much larger is going on in Africa and the general public even knowing it. I’ve seen little to almost no coverage given by news organizations of America TV in the devastating hunger crisis in the Horn of Africa.
I only learned of this crisis through RSS feeds on the Internet. The television news organizations including CNN, ABC, CBS and NBC are so far not reporting on this crisis. Hopefully this will change. It is clear that news organizations of America TV news does not really provide full and complete, but the events screen and only offer what they feel may be of interest to your audience. News organizations should present the news and, simultaneously, maintain high standards of journalism. Maybe these news organizations need to incorporate a higher level of moral obligation in their decision making when deciding which stories to cover. In any case, people can not donate if they know the problem exists. We have addressed some key issues in order to characterize the current state of the state of world hunger. We have examined where hunger is most prevalent in today’s world, and have identified some of the causal factors that contribute to malnutrition, hunger and starvation.
We have concluded that most morally conscious individuals would contribute to the elimination of hunger, if they knew of the crisis. Finally, we observed that the degree of coverage of world hunger by news organizations of television is much to be desired. While the television news organizations have not been covering the ongoing crisis of hunger in the world by reading this article have developed an understanding of the extent to which hunger is prevalent in today’s world. If you’re reading this in a developed country, which is very likely since you’re reading on a computer that has Internet access, have a moral obligation to donate time or money to assist in the elimination of suffering invisible. Winston Churchill once said, “we make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.” We must all do our part to end hunger in the world.
Even addressing systemic racism was couched as a zero-sum game: To dismantle one form of oppression you have to keep all the others. Few comments exemplified this more than Clinton’s rhetorical question along a Nevada campaign stop: “If we broke up the big banks tomorrow . There was a wide opening to address the financial environment in which big banks targeting black home buyers for subprime loans deepened the destabilization of black communities during the Great Recession and beyond. Pitting unmitigated capitalism, itself a driver of black subjugation and ongoing racial disparities, against some generalized admonishment of racism was one of the more shamefully disingenuous themes of Clinton’s campaign. And on top of being shameful, it didn’t work. A growing number of black people and black women in particular appear not only to have lost faith in the electoral process in 2016, but to be losing faith in the two major political parties. There is evidence that disillusionment is a far more significant factor than voter suppression in deflating turnout among voters of color.
