Is the poverty of the third world the fault of the first world?

  • Hanna is lelijk

    Is ook een kuttttkindje en ze moet gwn dr bek houden dat ze mooi is en dat ze naar Victoria secret gaat (dat is eigenlijk ook waar maar dat is alleen maar omdat de rest van de modellen dan nog veel mooier lijken. En ze is echt de lelijkste van de hele wereld.

  • Hanna is f**k ugly

    Ze is ook een kuttttkindje en ze moet gwn dr bek houden dat ze mooi is en dat ze naar Victoria secret gaat (dat is eigenlijk ook waar maar dat is alleen maar omdat de rest van de modellen dan nog veel mooier lijken. En ze is verliefd op Guusje en ze geeft haar vaak een kusje.

  • Analyze the economy of the first world and you will get a clear answer

    It comes down to a simple fact. Most of the countries rich today, had slaves in the past openly and all of them have them today "masked". Why is UK so rich? Do they have good soil, oli...Any other natural resource which is highly valuable? How the chocolate is made? From where the cacao is coming? Africa and Latin America, from farmers payed with almost nothing (slaves of the West). Yet. Who ownes big chocolate companies: Belgium, Austria, Swiss, Germany etc. And it goes on and on... Why PhD students are badly payed accros the globe? Because the imported talents from the third world are there to lower down the price of a PhD student and also obtain someone smart, hardworking and capable for a small money, with the promise of a career. And professorship afterwards: forget it. It will be given to BelgianS in Belgium, Dutch in Netherlands etc. Perhaps if you would be a future Einstein, but then US will take you in......AND you will still be badly payed compared to medical workers for example. Why? Because there are no scholarshop for studying medicine for foreigners.... So, yes, slavery 100 percent.

  • Poverty.. Violence.. Widespread disease.. It all comes down to over-population.

    Africa's birth rates are ridiculous and they only have themselves to blame for that. There is still an irrational tribal mentality amongst many Africans - believing that having a big family = power/success, rather than a reasonable mature approach - the more children you have, the less wealth they will each inherit from you! This simple lesson has still yet to be picked up in African culture - having a big family is a RESULT of wealth and NOT what leads to wealth.

    If you refuse to regard Africans responsible for anything (like a lot of irrational 'softies' would), then you should blame the multi-trillionaire church or Islam etc for it's strong anti-intellectual, anti-contraception enforcement.

    As for the economies, it is ridiculous to blame multinational companies alone. After all, it is the African 'politicians' who are in charge of the land and how it is run. It just so happens that fast money (multinational company agreements) appeal to these leaders more than doing what's best for the African public. It is an act of betrayal on the politicians behalf but for the multinational companies, it's nothing but a good deal. African governments are responsible for African people.

  • Think slavery, colonisation, exploitation, deculturalisation, worldwide inflation, infinite debts

    Why the African continent isn't likely to get on its feet anytime soon. I'll give one or more examples as I argue my point but know that within the 50+ countries of Africa, there are simply far too many.

    Because the natural resources are owned by multinationals. They get up to 50% of profits in the oil industry. Same goes for gold mines, diamond fields, etc. If the people try to rebel, the multinationals will orchestrate a coup or bomb the country and prop up a different dictator that would be favourable to their interests. This is the case of Mubarek (ex-president of Egypt), King of Morocco, etc.

    Because all the money supposedly given to Africans for fifty years doesn't actually reach them. In the case of Egypt it's directly channelled to the military so they can continue to enforce a totalitarian rule that wouldn't allow the people to prosper.

    Because there is massive sabotage of economic activity in Africa. There is worldwide inflation imposed on Africans thanks to the manipulations of the banking monopoly of the West. All African efforts to create an independent gold-based currency were in vain thanks to Western interference.

    Because there is importation of subsidised and consequently somewhat cheap goods from the West, so the average African farmer no matter how hard he works he will always have an insurmountable disadvantage against the forces of the West that want Africa an eternal dependent market. Such was the case of Benin's cotton industry.

    Because the world organisations that are supposed to help such as the IMF actually impose loans that they know cannot be paid back. They demand then that the Africans make cuts on vital sectors here and there, and that they buy exclusively western products as payback, that they hand out fishing and agricultural territories. Such is the case of Madagascar and others.

    Because there is massive weapon circulation in order to ensure eternal instability throughout the continent. This is not solely the fault of the western military industrial complex that sells all these weapons with absolutely no international supervision, but that of Russia and others as well.

  • Obviously!

    If the first world just simply handed their wealth to the third world, without expecting anything in return, and only acting in the interests of mankind, then everyone could be second world and Earth would be a better place. I don't understand why we listen to policies over our hearts, why we expect anything in return from starving children, or why we think we're worth their constant suffering. Pardon me, but I'm an American Soldier, and I'd give my last cent to these people. However, I know it wouldn't make a difference. It has to be a team effort, America. C'mon.

  • Our Comfort is their pain

    Anyone educated in these areas know that first world countries exploit third world countries. Things like free trade zones where we pay them very low wages and get away without paying extra taxes keep third world countries poor while keeping our prices down. Sometimes our government makes regulations that tries to prop up third world countries to depend in some way on first world countries such as how America behaved when coercing Haitians to get rid of their Creole pig in exchange for the pigs we use that rely on American feed. A pig is nothing to us, but was a source of wealth for many Haitians. We aid in their poverty and for some condescending reason choose to blame third world countries for their poverty after exploiting their natural resources

  • Pien lelijk kut kindjuuhhh

    Pien is gwn facking lelijk dus we moeten haar absoluut geen geld geven. Wij als knappe mensen gaan lelijke mensen zoals Pien geen geld geven! Het is een feit dat Pien lelijk is, en naar mijn mening moeten lelijke mensen geen geld krijgen. Dus Pien jij mag lekker zwerver worden en oprotten! Doei

  • Hanna is lelijk

    Het is een feit! Met haar grote onder kin. En Hanna gaat naar Victoria secret zodat de rest nog veel mooier lijken. En ze denkt dat ze helemaal cool is en super mooi (maar dat is niet waar). En ze geeft Guusje heel vaak een kusje. 🤓 🤓 🤓 🤓

  • No no no

    No because we are gift of god we are not all the same but if there is poor it doesn't mean that it was fault of third world because we are the one who are doing something our selves to be successful...So why should we blame the third world. Why?

  • Poverty of the third world is not the first-world fault.

    I don't believe that the first world should be held responsibly for the third world problem. I believe everyone thinks that benefiting ones self always takes priority over helping others. When we finally have benefited ourselves then we can go and help others, which is what we do with foundations and volunteering. Also, some people in the third world like the way they are living to a certain point. We are still trying to help them but we can not change them completely.

  • Why the third world has problems

    The characteristics expressed in societies/countries with a greater population growth have unchecked birth rates that far exceed the regions mortality rate. Characteristically these rates were found in less developed countries. Those countries also show a substantial amount of subsidy from foreign aid. Africa, in whole receives more foreign aid than ever, with the numbers going up every year. The aid Africa receives has been estimated to be in the trillions from global contributions. In return Africa’s current 1 Billion people will continue to benefit and reproduce because of donated food, money, vaccinations, antibiotics and pesticides to treat and control diseases. These contributions seem to be the stem of the problem that branches out into over population thus fueling the demand for more aid. More developed nations and its people like to throw cash at problems (mostly referring to the US), this gives them a sense of pride, as though they are helping out in away without realizing they are feeding a person who in turn will have 4-8 more starving children. The cycle is viscous; most undeveloped nations without proper Family Planning programs have their female population baring children starting in their early teens.

  • Of course not

    Why should you blame us? There is no more colonialism. They are independent states and they deal for themselves. The thing is that they are not well-organized or disciplined enough to make the machine work so stop whining about poverty and for God's sake stop stealing whites' land (Rhodesia) and get to work.

  • No

    They are stupid and you know they are.Why would they depend on other people. If they have a good reason then they are excused from working. Instead they sit around begging not knowing if they can work or not. On the other the first world is making so much effort to help them while they sit arround

  • The First world is not accountable for third world problems

    Countries are responsible for themselves and that is it. Poor countries that are unstable probably do not have the resources or commitment to be successful, and that is their own fault. First world countries are not to be blamed for the misfortunes of certain countries. If they improved their economies they could be stronger.

  • No

    It is not anyone else's fault those people can come to the first world countries for help. It is not the responsibility of the first world country to come to them. The world will never be equal and there will always be people that are less off than others but they need to find people to help them out.
