In advance: "the wild '68" this issue had been resolved and clear "yes" answer. Another saying: "There are so many reasons for hunger in the world, such as hands, it (/ these) to defeat. Two of them belong to you!". How do you think? Without modern technology, there was also a quality of life. The death was easier. In total, people had to endure throughout her short life less painful. There was also a social system. Every life form has a functioning social system - or they will fail because they lose important data / experience of one's own life. How do you feel about that?

The greatest blame for the poverty of Western colonialism bears. The colonial powers, calling themselves the "mother country" oriented, the economy of the colonies on their interests. To economic development and education of the indigenous population they were not interested. They left the monocultures were limited to the cultivation of only a few plant species (coffee, cocoa, coconuts, etc.) and the dependency and underdevelopment.

Africa and Asia were poorer before the prosperity of the Western world, yet many times over. Their current wealth, which is compared with the Western world is still relatively poor, they owe only to the prosperity of the Western world. Woe to those countries, if it is in the western world with the wealth goes downhill.
