Who are we who inhabit “the developed world”?
At “the top”… a tiny minority groomed for “aristocracy”… a privileged caste selectively bred in comfort, ease, and safety… reared to think they “have it”… and are entitled to own and rule the world.
And then there’s “us”… hundreds of millions reared to join the rank and file… nameless, impotent, disposable… trained to believe we DON’T “have it”… destined to do the heavy lifting and dirty work… rendered content with a life of drudgery in exchange for the occasional guilty pleasure.
So, which of these would I rather be?
The answer, of course, is neither.
How can anyone claim freedom and dignity as a slave beneath… or master above… another?
