Global South: situation requires our actions.
– If you barely manage to survive in a land of poverty, somewhere at the end of the world and you think that nothing will change your fate, the fate of your children and your country, then know that you have friends from afar, who just extends a helping hand.
It is not about sharing something with them, giving something to them. The point is to know the causes of the bad condition and try to change them.
To do this, it is necessary to involve the majority of rich societies.
It can not be that we find ourselves living in blissful ignorance, and they were not have anyone to rely on. So first, we need to know how is the situation there, if help is needed and what help.
Global South: situation requires our actions for at least 3 reasons
Global South: situation requires our actions for them and for us.
First, empathy. We feel what extreme poverty people feel, sick of malnutrition, deprived of hope because of the surrounding poverty.
Second, head lifting nationalism. We do not want a repeat of history. We look for a better future in the mutual support of societies, not in the ruthless competition of the peoples.
And thirdly, in poor countries there are 3 times more people than in rich countries, but their working capacity for the development of civilization is much smaller. They are huge untapped potential. Imagine a world where there are 4 times more inventors, 4 times more scientists, 4 times more doctors, composers, cleaners, 4 times more customers etc… Imagine this technical progress, new medications, excellent health care, fresh honey for ears, pure Earth, etc…
News about wars, cataclysms and epidemics are not everything
Global South – situation according to the media: news about wars, cataclysms and epidemics reach us as the sounds of mass woes in the Global South. However, this is the “tip of the iceberg“. Much more casualties are brought by ordinary daily poverty, which is shared by hundreds of millions of people. Nobody knows these people, nobody has heard about this or that family. We could know about them, if everyone in the Global North wanted to meet 3 people from the Global South – so many people live in poor countries.
Indeed, none of us is able to grasp the situation around the globe, but everyone can get to know a piece of the world, a few people, a few streets or village and “keep an eye on.”
Let them join the global production, let them unleash the talents, let them develop a civilization with us.
Let’s export prosperity.
