We formulate our opinions of the world based mostly on news that has been selected, edited, and presented by an intermediary. For instance, how many of you participated in the "Arab Spring"? These intermediaries - news corporations mostly - have their own agendas, and painting an accurate, even-handed picture of an event might not be part of it. Therefore, if you truly want to be informed about current events, you need to get your information of at least two (often opposing) sources, amirite?
According to the most recent World Bank statistics, 1.2 billion people in the world live on less than $1.25 a day. These people exist not only in developing nations, but also in western industrial societies including the USA, the UK, Japan and western Europe. It is not that these people lack ambition, what they lack is opportunity. Most able-bodied people are happy to work if and when there is work available.
