, well of course everything is opinion in politics. I could show you cause and effect relationships in poor urban areas, or cause and effect of first generation immigrants vs their 3rd generation progeny. I could show you cause and effect of with children too. (trust me on this one, I have seen it very close up with my own childrens "friends" at school and their interaction with their parents")
But you would counter with your own cause and effect examples of greed or imperialism or racism to back your opinion. I would suggest you follow the simplest path and use your own logic.
Don't feed the animals ...signs in government parks and zoos are there to prevent the animals from becoming dependent , or to prefer the handouts vs the their natural food sources.
Second...the old saying...Give a man a fish, he will eat for one meal. TEACH a man to fish, and he will eat for a lifetime.
You can choose whether the 'government' is able to 'solve' problems, or whether the government is tinkering with society to better one segment and hurt another.( intentionally or unintentionally.) (or to buy votes, as seen by todays new rules on illegal immigrants from the Obama whitehouse)
