A huge proponent of the Westernization of the world is the westerner's idea that they are somehow more advanced and everyone else who is not apart of
this New World Order are backwards. So we label those nations "Third World", or "developing". "Developing" into what you might ask.. a New World
The average westerner might think aww, Cuba is so poor, they need to "develop". No, Cuba is poor mainly due to the US embargo.
If there was no economic and political pressure upon developing, I'm pretty sure most nations would not comply, because it is really just western
imperialism disguised as good will (it will do you backwards monkeys good if you become just like us). Sure, they include good things such as life
expectancy as a measurement of a countries "developedness", but the most emphasis is placed upon the economy. A country can have high life
expectancy, but without the right economic system, they are not considered "developed". Basically, "developed" countries would all follow the same
economic model, which is OUR economic model: privatize your industries, so the rich white people on top can buy them from you and then f*ck you over,
because they don't actually give a sh!t about your people.
In fact, I feel pretentious even using the words "developed", "developing", and "third world". Who is to tell them that they are living the
wrong way, and must adopt the westerners ways of life? Who is to say our materialistic, apathetic, and ignorant lifestyle is "developed"? It's just
such a pretentious word.
Really the only countries now left that are opposing the imperialist trap that is the world economy are those that are in the targets of the US: Iraq
who switched to selling oil based upon the euro in 2000, Iran who is gonna switch, North Korea who is trying to be completely self-sufficient, various
African nations, various South American countries, who viewed the "West" as one imperialistic entity (Che saw it this way as well), which were
"destabilized" and had puppet pro-west leaders installed in the past few decades, and a small few in Asia. That's about it. That is all that is
left of the world that is resisting assimilation in to the New World Order.
Basically, "developing" just means "becoming westernized."
