Better ways to spend money

Better Ways to Spend Money

  • Governments have much more pressing needs, like hunger and disease, which are immediately life threatening and should be where the majority of government funds are spent.

Lack of Desire

  • In many places where Internet service is not available it is not generally desired.

  • Many indigenous cultures of Latin America and Africa resent the presence of technology therefore the government has no reason to provide these people with access to the Internet and computers.
