Don’t save the children

with 16 comments

In India, 50% of everyone born blind die in childhood.
People use resources but they mostly contribute to those resources in some way as well.
In an underdeveloped country it could be argued that blind people use resources but don’t contribute.
In a developed country curing blind children means that more people contribute to the countrys’ economy.
Therefore saving childrens’ sight in a developed country means more people who can contribute.
However, in an over-populated underdeveloped country (India for example) there are less resources and less ability to be able to contribute.
Therefore curing blind children in India (or any over-populated under-resourced country) adds to that countrys’ problems.
Therefore we shouldn’t try to save the sight of poor Indian children
