Abstract: Upon reflecting on McGloughlin's response to our original essay it becomes quite clear that we and she speak from different world views. Where she sees simple problems that can be solved with quick technological fixes provided by private industry, we see an unequal world where problems like hunger are the product of inequality, and can only be solved by striking at that inequality head on. In what follows we briefly respond to a number of her points.
