“Massive poverty and obscene inequality…rank alongside slavery and apartheid as social evils. In this new century, millions of people…remain imprisoned, enslaved, and in chains. They are trapped in the prison of poverty. It is time to set them free. Like slavery and apartheid, poverty is not natural. It is manmade and it can be overcome….Overcoming poverty is not a gesture of charity. It is an act of justice. It is the protection of a fundamental human right, the right to dignity and a decent life. We thank you for coming here today. Sometimes it falls upon a generation to be great. You can be that great generation. Let your greatness blossom. Of course the task will not be easy. but not to do this would be a crime against humanity, against which I ask all humanity now to rise up.”
