These are some astounding stats I found shocking when looking at the problems around the world - stats the charities do little to resolve.
40% of the world's population do not have access to proper sanitation and 1 billion people lack the most basic water supply.
Access to clean water is a basic right in Islam established by the statement of the prophet (salallahu alayhi wasalam)
The question is how much money would be required to meet the basic water supply and sanitation?
$10bn per year. Sounds a lot?
Well currently 8 people in the world have as much wealth as 50% of the worlds population. They have a combined wealth of $426.2bn
What could that do?
Firstly eradicate extreme poverty $175bn needed
Secondly provide water and sanitation to the worlds population
Thirdly alleviate homelessness ($21bn per year for ten years is required).
That's just from 8 people.
You there's a fundamental imbalance in the world under a capitalist system. There's enough resources to address the problems we face as humanity but there isn't the adequate system in place that prioritises human beings.
Yet apparently anyone who questions the fundamental premise of liberal secular capitalist societies are barbaric and backward.
No this system is barbaric and backward for not fulfilling the rights all humans have.
