No, it's me saying that people should be free to decide for themselves.
Much of the third world is the way it is because of their culture, geographic and political situation, not because of anything the rest of the world
has done to them.
For example, the Middle East should be one of the richest and most modern regions on earth with all the oil they've sold off, but their
socio-political systems have concentrated that wealth into the hands of only a very, very few wealthy families and the countries have remained
third-world cess pools for the most part without developing any other kind of industry to speak of. You can argue about Western meddling, but
countries like Singapore have managed to modernize without the benefit of resources and with the meddling.
Additionally, how much do we send in foreign aid to these places that also never seems to do much good to speak of?
You can speak from the relativistic angle of all cultures being equal, but they really aren't. How can a culture get ahead if they consider that a
meeting starts when they get there and not when the time for meeting is set? That way lies chaos. But it's the standard in many African cultures. Or
going back to the Middle East, why would you intentionally bar half your workforce from working or being educated if they were so inclined? You've
just lost half the potential productive capacity of your people by choice.
Or let's look at Venezuela, they have the centrally planned command economy a NWO would by default attempt to impose. There is no freedom there and
precious little of anything else because there is no way you can adequately model and plan for all the variables in an economy.
