Let's be clear about something, even as we attack the very foundations of capitalism: Money is not evil. GREED is evil. Money is just a tool, like any other, and how it affects others depends on how it used.

NYAHHHHH finally got back online following the death of my phone (and all associated 2fa accounts). Still can't access any other social media besides this and Pinterest, but hey, I'll take it!

Grasslands are some of Earth's largest ecosystems, covering just over 40% of the world's land area.

Grasses evolved over 65 million years ago, and are some of the most versatile plants in the world. With meristems at their bases, they can easily grow back after being cropped. They evolved this way because of grazing animals, who trample and kill seedling trees but don't kill grasses. Otherwise, trees would outcompete grasses nearly every time.

hunger, poverty, money, military 

The estimated cost to end world hunger is approximately $30 billion per year. Ending world poverty would cost $175 billion.

In 2018, the world had a collective military budget of $1739 billion.

Hunger and poverty could be eradicated with just 12% of the amount of money spent on "defence".

The USA alone could reduce its military budget enough to end hunger and poverty, and still have the largest military spending in the world.
