The United Nations has quietly deleted an article which praised the “benefits” of world hunger for the global elite and admitted food shortages are “a great positive value” to the global elite.

Originally published in 2008, the article, titled ‘The Benefits of World Hunger’, was republished by the UN’s Chronicle magazine earlier this year, just in time for the 2022 food production crisis and global food shortages.

We sometimes talk about hunger in the world as if it were a scourge that all of us want to see abolished,” wrote the author, Prof. George Kent from the University of Hawaii.

Kent admitted that food shortages are actually, “A great positive value to many people. Indeed, it is fundamental to the working of the world’s economy. Hungry people are the most productive people, especially where there is a need for manual labour.”

The author admitted that there is no incentive for the global elite to end world hunger. For those of us at the high end of the social ladder, ending hunger globally would be a disaster. If there were no hunger in the world, who would plow the fields? Who would harvest our vegetables?“

“For many of us, hunger is not a problem, but an asset.

The article was quietly deleted from the UN website after attracting negative attention from alternative media outlets.

Fortunately, the article was archived before it was deleted by the UN, or else fact checkers would have claimed the article did not exist.
