The obvious answer to all the famines across the world is if we would all share across the world and don’t have some of us be very rich while some of us starve to death. And the answer to everybody sharing is for everybody to be spiritual, out of real good high kind altruistic places. But people like Mahatma Gandhi pointed out that it’s really hard to get people to be spiritual while they’re hungry. It’s very difficult to get high philosophy out of empty bellies. So we have an obligation — because we have full bellies, because we’re living good — we have an obligation to have the highest and the finest that we can possibly put out, to try to help other people to feel that way too.
The folks that are starving to death in India and in Africa are just as real as us. They are each just as individually an important human being on the earth as we are. Each one of them has just as much of a right to live as we do. There is no value difference whatsoever. We’re just lucky, man, just lucky. Not better, just lucky.
