The world, like the people who populate it, would adapt, and continue on it's way.
Better off/worse off? A subjective judgement.
The real question, for me, as an American, would seem to be: Would I, as a human being, be better off ignoring the needs of my fellow humans,
depsite whether or not they acknowledge my efforts in their behalf.
To this, I can easily answer, No.
