Rock Star Bono’s Solution To Global Poverty Is Infuriating The Left

U2 lead singer and global activist Bono made this stunning announcement about what REALLY brings people out of poverty

…and it is going to make leftists FURIOUS!

… in a speech at Georgetown University, Bono altered his economic and political views and declared that only capitalism can end poverty.

“Aid is just a stopgap,” he said. “Commerce [and] entrepreneurial capitalism take more people out of poverty than aid. We need Africa to become an economic powerhouse.”

Bono also angered the left when he thanked the American people for the billions they’ve given to help make the world a better place.

He also spoke at length about his Christian faith and how it influences his world view.

“That’s what I’m hoping happens here at Georgetown with you,” he said. “Because when you truly accept that those children in some far off place in the global village have the same value as you in God’s eyes or even in just your eyes, then your life is forever changed, you see something that you can’t un-see.”

It’s a shame that Bono gets what the left doesn’t; government doesn’t solve any problems.

No surprise that a man worth over $1 billion understands that commerce and freedom are what truly make is better. Not statism and central planning.
