Overflowing resources

In a meeting discussing Community Support Services today, we moved in the predictable direction of lamenting the underfunding of our services, followed by the acknowledgement that if the government provided more adequate income support to people then our services wouldn't even be necessary.

Increasingly we are faced with claims that our world is blessed with enough resources for all of its inhabitants - yet because we have not been able to share them effectively, some suffer whilst others live wastefully. I am challenged again about my own life and how simply could I live if it were necessary to do so?
