    If you’re hungry now, that’s the problem on your mind: when and if you will find your next meal. That’s hunger insecurity.If you’re reading a newspaper article about drought and possible crop failure, you are worried that food may become more expensive . That’s food insecurity.This discussion may indicate that the term “food insecurity” is not the most effective one in the writer’s vocabulary.

    That’s a valid response, but I would prefer the term “hunger insecurity” for its connotation of urgency. “Food insecurity” suggests a problem of delivery; some foodstuff, e.g. rice, may not be available but leaves open the possibility of substituting another, e.g. wheat. Hunger is an intense experience, even in recollection or anticipation.

    In the days of our founding fathers, we regarded this as exploitation, mercantilism: we in America sold raw materials for English companies to use, but we were not to exploit them ourselves, only to buy the products produced by the English manufacturers. It was a rallying point in our war for independence.We are now a country based on industry, no longer the agricultural society we once were. We should consider help to emerging societies in building their local factories a humanitarian duty, and be grateful to FINCA et al. for giving us the opportunity to join that effort.

    “Back round” is an interesting phrase, though; it’s a quicker look back than “background”, more of a backward glance than a historical perspective.

    I developed a little pain in my chest when I was living in Paris for a year; not wanting to deal with cancer in a foreign country, I stopped smoking. The little pain went away. When I returned home to Utah, I started smoking again…and the little pain came back. It kept at me until I stopped smoking. My body was talking to me and I listened. That was in the seventies. I’m still here and breathing easily.

    A carefully reasoned statement of disagreement would be a more effective.

    We would also do well to ask ourselves what conditions we tolerate today, with twinges of conscience, that in 20 or so years from now will be seen clearly to be morally abominable. Very few act on their moral principles when they will be regarded by their neighbors as simple idealist for doing so.
