    I thought rich nations already helped out poor nations? We've basically created permanent welfare nations with some of our current policies of assistance. We've helped fuel population growth in poor nations, with generations being dependent on international relief, while continuing to have children at a higher rate than their benefactors. And, as always happens, the poorer peoples end up resenting the more well off, and turning on them.

    Sounds like a plan to cause revolt so someone can crack down.
