Harari does contend with the idea that this is in large part because humanity as a group doesn't care enough to solve the problem of hunger for all its citizens. But, there is sufficient food in the world to support its population, so we have conquered famine. Do you agree?
No. Wasted food in the refrigerator of a house in the US means less than nothing to a starving family in South Sudan. This might mean we have the *potential* to conquer famine, but we haven't done so yet.
(Haven't finished the book yet. Nothing I saw in the "first impressions" thread made me want to actually spend money to get the book and thus finish it.)
According to this study, the world currently produces enough food to feed 10 billion humans. As Harai stated it would seem the problem of famine currently is man made.

Nobody in this thread says anything else.

Sure. That's not a particularly profound or novel observation; it does not, however, mean the problem is not real. War has always been a 'man-made' problem, but I doubt that even Harari would argue that as a result we have "conquered" war since its invention.
