Global Greed

There is only 1/5 the resources needed on earth for everyone to live like an American. This means that Americans, with their wasteful lifestyle, are forcing millions of people to live on less than $1 a day. It takes the sacrifice of quite a large number of Africans to balance out the excesses of even one American. Americans feel no gratitude for this. They feel only contempt. Africans, of course, do not make this sacrifice voluntarily.
