QUESTION: Sir John, why are you so concerned about eradicating poverty?
ANSWER: Poverty is the most cruel, ruthless, and inhumane condition of life. Poverty can suck anyone even those who are well-off now. Society must have a mechanism to save people out of poverty and provide a safety-net to prevent people from falling down under the poverty line.
Many people get rich because they exploit undefended land, uneducated labor, and destroy natural resources. The more these exploiters succeed, the more people will fall into poverty. That is why we are here, to provide a strong force to protect land, labor, and nature, as a way to eradicate poverty.
