Miscalculations of the future

In watching another TED Talk, I was intrigued by a question posed (at the 28:00 mark, if you are interested):

If you had to solve one of these problems, which would you choose--terrorism or poverty?

Poverty facillitates terrorism... so poverty.

Oooh...I go with Anonymous. That's a really good question, though. It's sobering to think about how much that stuff is intertwined.

Terrorism.

Let the church rid the poverty.

oh I would DEFINITELY choose poverty. because poverty seems so much more...preventable? it seems like terrorism is something SO out of my hands..something I wouldn't be able to do anything about anyhow. and it seems like I would rather have people not in poverty taking their chances against terrorism, than have "safe" people who can't feed their children.

Poverty because terrorism is a product of poverty.
