And marketing. And some new cop show. Because lord knows there aren’t enough of them.
This does not mean famine or starvation, but the condition of never being sated.
It is difficult to calculate the number of people on this planet who do not have enough to sustain themselves.
Statistics estimate that one out of every eight folks- including children- were chronically undernourished from the start of the decade until last year.
Throughout the world.
What a nice euphemism.
What is an example of hunger in Buddhism? Hmm, let’s see. The Walton family and the Koch brothers are billionaires and still greedy and grasping, wanting more.
If people suffer, c’est la vie.
Hunger, in a Buddhist sense, is Nestle trying to patent the fennel plant or bottle and sell community water.
How about our friends at the banks and Wall Street?
Or Walter White amassing his fortune, ostensibly only for his family.
Just an aside, but a homeless gentleman found a backpack with $42,000 and returned it the police. Good thing he wasn’t a hedge fund manager.
A good life credo:

What about Breaking Bad, the lede of this column? Every tenet of marketing would advocate promoting a new television show following the popular series and the penultimate episodes and finale.

Additional television following Walter’s, and others in his universe, exploits would be like stopping for fast food after eating a gourmet meal.
Relish, feast and then savor. But who doesn’t want more episodes?
*As long as your passion doesn’t include invading other countries or cutting social programs.
