A Philosophical Excogitation on Curbing Poverty Level

Bassey Samuel Akpan


As poverty continues influencing billions of people over the world – prompting the death of millions since they are unnecessarily poor– there is a crushing good question to ask: What moral subjects do we have to help end this preposterous phenomenon? The idea of Global poverty is not defensible in that while some persons are dying of poverty, others have far in tons for their needs, regardless the arguments in its defense. My contention is that Capitalism now widens the gap between the poor and the rich and further heightens at large. The same groups of capitalist that are responsible are best equipped to solve it and though most of them don’t even consider it to be a basic obligation to address. I contend that these people are die-hard capitalist leaders and that poverty can be eradicated when these leaders assume moral responsibility to apply capitalism in a significantly more sustainable way - a way that has coherence for the future generation and justice towards humans at large. The act of sustainable capitalism as an answer for extreme poverty is subject to a significant mass' of capitalist acting in a way that showcases idealistic moral character and sets the case for others to take after.
