What 3 words or things come instantly in your mind when you hear the words "First World" & "Third World"
Luigi, thank you for your words. I did not know of Vicente Ferrer Moncho, but I 'googled' him and read about him, thanks to you. You and I agree that classifications of societies leaves out the human aspect of it all. Wonderful people are present in EVERY culture and country. The terms that are referred to as 'first' and 'third' only refer to a countries status in terms of industrialization and development, not more than that. For example, Denmark and Sweden are developed countries, while Ecuador and Botswana are third world. These terms 'first' and 'third' may not be up to date terms, but I learned them many years ago. I am only a hospital worker (respiratory therapist), not a sociologist or economist. Regards, B
