But, as you can see, there are far fewer people "starving" these days than in previous decades, despite the huge increase in global population. So there is no interpretation of "more" that would be correct.
Despite what many people would have you believe, the world today is a better place than it has ever been in (recorded) history.
It is also worth noting that the periods of mass famine almost always correlate with the existence of a Socialist/Communist dictatorship. Ironically, it is modern socialists who would have you believe that the world is starving and that it is all our (the Western Capitalist Nations) fault. This couldn't be further from the truth. The success of Western Capitalist Nations correlates so directly with the dramatic reduction in starvation across the planet, that causation seems quite obvious.
