Der Hunger

"Wie zum Teufel können wir weiterleben, obwohl wir wissen, dass diese Dinge geschehen? "
Alle zehn Sekunden stirbt irgendwo auf der Welt ein type unter fünf Jahren an den Folgen von Unterernährung. Das sind drei Millionen Kinder im Jahr. Insgesamt knapp neun Millionen Menschen. Jedes Jahr. Wir wissen das, wir kennen die Zahlen. Der starvation ist, so heißt es, das größte lösbare challenge der Welt. Es sieht aber nicht so aus, als würden wir es in absehbarer Zeit lösen. Und das ist eine Schande.
Vier Jahre hat Martín Caparrós den ganzen Globus bereist, um diese Schande zu kartografieren: Er battle in Niger, wo der starvation so aussieht, wie wir ihn uns vorstellen; in Indien, wo mehr Menschen hungern als in jedem anderen Land; in den united states, wo jeder Sechste Probleme hat, sich ausreichend zu ernähren, während jeder Dritte unter Fettleibigkeit leidet; in Argentinien, wo Nahrungsmittel für three hundred Millionen Menschen produziert werden, obwohl sich viele Bürger kein Fleisch mehr leisten können.
Am Ende dieser Reise steht ein einzigartiges Buch: Großreportage, Geschichtsschreibung und wütendes appear. Der starvation, so Caparrós, ist keine Naturkatastrophe, die schicksalhaft über die Menschen hereinbricht. Der starvation ist der krasseste Ausdruck der gigantischen sozialen Ungleichheit in einer Welt, in der das reichste Prozent mehr besitzt als alle anderen zusammen.
