Disclaimer: If you don't think this applies to you, then it doesn't. I'm just making casual generalizations about the way many Third World Children in modern times seem to behave.

I think they have it easy in life - at least in the 21st century. They can get away with just about everything. They don't have to worry about farming, because they strongly believe that the first-world can provide them with food aid (reverse oppression) ... they can be lazy, because they can easily claim that the government will cease their property anyways. The don't get an education because they state they're too poor to obtain one. They still feel entitled to not just a meal, but security and a home as well. Now, in the past, the big trade-off was that they were colonized, and were disrespected and considered inferior. However, the modern Third World Child, exploiting the bloody work of their subjugated predecessors, can cry "poverty" at the slightest hint of disrespect. In addition, the rise of cheap vaccination and ability to immigrate to a foreign country has risen their suffering obsolete.

So, having all of their needs met, the modern third world child can be as flippant and carefree as they wish.

this is dumb.
