    Talking in extremes, no economic system is sustainable indefinitely. There is no empirical evidence that you could give the prove any system is sustainable for an undefined amount of time.

Some people drastically overestimate their own ability to "survive" in a completely hostile environment. You ever see Hunger Games? The part when the instructor says "bla bla most of you will die to starvation, disease, or cold." Somehow in the movie, and the book for that matter, none of them do? Instead its all sword fights, arrows, bees, anything BUT the elements kills them. Yeah not the way the real world works. Starvation is literally number 9 on a long list of problems in some parts of the world.
    Rofl... I'll tell you what, if you actually believe the shit that you just said you have no hope. Africa is the way it is for a reason and it's because of the people that live there.

    It's hard to believe that anyone actually has views like this in modern society.

    Sure, if you consider "well" when almost everyone was dirt poor, could not read, oh and with shitty health.

    Yes you will survive with

    African Trypanosomiasis: Caused by flies in Africa, you will just swat them hoes away right and not get fatally sick?

    Dengue: Caused by being bit by a Aedes aegypti mosquito which can cause circulatory failure, but just like with the flies you will just swat them hoes away?

    Cholera: Mostly caused by drinking water in unsanitary conditions, no way your water source will have that though huh?

    Shigellosis: Caused by poor sanitation with Diarrhea as a symptom, but its not like its hot in Africa or something you dont need all those fluids, shit all you want. Im not sure why 600,000 people die every year from it, they must just be really stupid for being born in very unsanitary conditions.

    The list goes on and on with even more deadly, unpreventable (without decent health treatment in hospitals, which Africa surely does not have) diseases. That is ridiculous you think you will survive, uncomfortably but still alive, as long as you have a small strip of unsanitary land and a small strip of unsanitary water.

    I appreciate the effort but it's a bit pointless when the intended recipient posts something as ignorant as "Give me a small strip of land and a water source and I will survive. Not comfortably but I will survive."

    Because you if you could transpose a representative slice of humanity into the same conditions we are discussing, most reasonable people would agree that the majority would not survive. No one from the first world would have a chance regardless of how much we beat our chests about intelligence and civility.
