    a great deal less rights. Scholars like Onora O'Neill and Peter Singer try to join the problem of the world's famine trouble to one's moral code of ethics. In this paper, I will describe O'Neill's connection between Kantian ethics and famine, the variations she attracts between Kantian ethics and utilitarianism, and give an explanation for Singer's trust that people have sturdy utilitarian duties toward the problem.
