Anyone else tired of hearing “third world” or “first world” when talking about how developed a country is?
Because the terms weren’t even invented for that!
Tbh just the way most people talk about the developing countries sucks.
No we aren’t all poor (some people are actually extremely rich). Yes, we do have ‘first world problems’ and complain about them. No, we don’t all live miserable lives. No, not everyone wants to leave their homeland. No, we aren’t “uncivilized”. Yes, there are big modern cities. Yes there is technology. And yes, our days are just like yours, with minor differences!
And finally yes. We do have issues. Some of them are extreme, it’s true. But we have to stop thinking we are helpless, or that we just have to accept whatever we get. We can make things better.
We are just as capable of making the world better as everyone else is.
