Very good news globally
May 24, 2011
Whereas the economic and political policies instituted within this country in the past 30 years have uniformly acted to build up the rich and grind down the middle class and the poor, overseas in what used to be called the Third World, the middle class is growing exponentially, and is projected to reach as much as five billion people in just a few years.
As difficult as this global transition is for the west, and particularly for the US, so accustomed to thinking itself the center of the universe, this is still massively good news. Who wants to live as one of the rich few among oceans of the poverty-stricken? Much better for us to come into the world on a more level playing field.
I repeat, this is very good news. A Christian Science Monitor report via Schwartzreport.
