I don't think we should be sending aid to Africa.
I think it's too late to help them and we're just wasting money on them. If you think about it, the more Africans we save the more overpopulated the world will become and the more disease there will be.
I think we shoul be focusing on our own issues in our own countries.

As you posted your opinion, this is my opinion, so you think Africans are needy and full of disease and overpopulated and poor, well when I checked most African nations have very small population, and diseases are found everywhere in the world, and let me remind you if you have forgotten, Africa used to be a continent with very rich resources like gold , diamond and the the rest until you who claim helping Africans came and ripped them all their resources and enslaved majority of them, the drought they brought into Africa planted a tree of memory, as its quite clear why are you complaining of the small aid people give Africa, what those fucking countries took from Africa can't be even played back3

While I agree with you in principle, the way you word it sounds awfully cold.
Many people, including myself, consider over population the world's #1 problem. The experts don't all agree (nothing new there), however the consensus is that the world is vastly over populated. A lot of experts think we can't even feed the current population, let alone future growth. Over population is at the root of some of our biggest problems, such as the environment, famine, energy, resources, clean water, some wars, etc.
Technology is not keeping up with population growth. As a matter of fact, technology is the basic cause of the problem. The population boom directly correlates to advances in medicine and longevity.
Nature is cruel. But nature also wins in the end. Call it "culling the herd". Pay the price now, or pay a higher price in the future. There are no good options. None of the options, including what you suggest, are acceptable. However something must be done about it, or things will only get worse.
I have no idea on a palatable solution. But something needs to be done, and soon. There are no palatable solutions because most humans have a heart and don't want to see suffering. We watch a lion kill it's prey. We understand that nature works that way, but we still cringe for the poor animal being killed.
So what's the solution? Of necessity it has to be politically and socially acceptable. What you suggest doesn't meet that criteria, not even close. So what's the solution?
This is something I started to research for over 30 years ago, and I don't have the answer.1
