in rich countries the most widespread disease is obesity and in the Third-World the number one cause of death is hunger and malnutrition.

Was it not this way in the past?
So if you have a lot money you eat plenty, if you don't have a lot of money you don't.
Pretty simple.
Why those third world countries wont/can't get their acts together is intriguing.

Maybe they are still being held back?

You're here because you know something.
What you know you can't explain,
But you feel it;
You've felt it your entire life.
That there's something wrong with the world.
You don't know what it is, but it's there....
Like a splinter in your mind...
Driving you mad.

Indeed they are being held back, by many forces.

That's natural selection. People stray too far from the Middle Path in both directions and suffer the consequences.

Whether or not they choose to stray is irrelevant to the end result they experience, which is disease and death. I wouldn't expect it any other way really; there will always be areas where people overconsume, or areas where the country's in such a bad situation the people can't even get enough food to eat.


--------------------
So long as you are praised think only that you are not yet on your own path but on that of another.

For instance-Indeed the Continent known as 'The Cradle of Man' definitely seems not to be 'The Cradle of Civilization' also.

If the so-called "leaders" of many African nations stopped buying gold-plated Roll Royces whilst their people drop dead of starvation, it might help matters there somewhat...

no, people used to rely on ressources from their own land, but now, with the process of globalization and with the world market, rich people rely on poor country's ressources.

the way the actual globalization process is behaving right now is only deepening the trench between the Third-World and the rich world.

I'm pretty sure that ever since we were "civilised" enough to have currency, there have been rich people and there have been poor people. There have alwayds been Haves and Have-Nots.

I'm not saying it's good... but it's not exactly front page news.
