47. I've never understood the concept of a hunger strike -
- I don't see where it serve any purpose and don't think it's an effective tool. Can only speak for myself, but knowing that someone is on a hunger strike has never made me reconsider their situation or take notice of what they are protesting or advocating. My first thought is "How stupid?" when someone chooses not to eat when they can, especially when so many would love to eat but can't.
