If the world were a global village

If the world were a global village of 100 people, over 70 of them would be unable to read, and only one would have a college education. Over 50 would be suffering from malnutrition, and over 30 would live in what we call substandard housing. If the world were a global village of 100 residents, six of them would be from the United States. Those six would have half of the village’s entire income; the other 94 would exist on the other half. How would the wealthy live “in peace” with their neighbors? Surely they would be driven to arm themselves against the other 94…perhaps even to spend, as we do, more per person on military “defense” than the tIMG_20141112_184624416_HDRotal personal income of the others. – The People of the World
