what makes us “developed”?

23 Nov

The reason nations in the global South are better known as low income countries rather than developing countries is because they are not developing countries. Simply from the point of view that we have the power to destroy things, and the power to catch up by giving temporary cures, makes us “developed”. We are so “developed” that we have the power to stifle the genuine development of other nations. If we in the West weren’t constantly siphoning the resources of other nations and sending our gratitude in the form of drought and geopolitical meddling, we would witness just how developed they really are.
