Is the UN trying to control the world? Or merely facilitate the free market system which has proven itself over marxist ideals?

Is the gap between the rich and the poor really getting bigger? What really seperates the "western world" and the third world? Is it the wealth or is it the health?

I thought I'd share this fantastic presentation by Hans Rosling for all of those interested...

The western world is becoming the third world.
"an increasingly underemployed, lower-wage work-force; a small but growing moneyed class that pays almost no taxes; the privatization or elimination of human services; the elimination of public education for low-income people; the easing of restrictions against child labor; the exporting of industries and jobs to low-wage, free-trade countries; the breaking of labor unions; and the elimination of occupational safety and environmental controls and regulations." - Michael Parenti


Interesting video by the way.

This is very true and its happening because the big business corporations demand more cheap labor and lower operating costs.
