| Topics for discussion
| 1. Is it ever right to go on 'hunger-strike'? How
should we treat people who do?
| 2. Is it better to have a voluntary approach to food
rationing or to have a scheme imposed by the government?
| 3. Some people go hungry because of sanctions imposed
by other countries. Is it ever right to deliberately prevent the food that they
need reaching people?
| 4. During wartime it is sometimes necessary to ration
other things besides food. Can you think of things that might have to be
rationed and can you explain why rationing would be necessary?
| 5. How important is it for governments to ensure that
people have enough food? What things can they do to try to make sure no one
goes hungry? What foodstuffs should they be most concerned about?
