This is from Prof. Carvalho in Brazil
In my city, in your city, around the world, there is too much food in the supermarkets.
And the food is not only enough, but excessive.
You can see all day long, on your TV, the advertisements, presenting all kinds of food, and inviting people to go to the supermarket, for taking "wonderfood".
The problem is...
if you want to take that food...
you have to leave some money.
And a lot of people... cannot do the exchange... they cannot take their food, the food which is waiting for them, at the shelves, because they don't have the money.
So... if genetics is able to produce and distribute enough money... it is ok... no problem... Finally, they will go to the supermarket to take the food which is waiting for them and their money.
If they take all the food I am seeing at the corner today... no problem... tomorrow the shelves will be full of food again. It is not magic. It is only money.
I believe that.
