    Yes they should. If they won't , then poor countries will start dying and only rich countries will be left.

    ​Which in turn would raise the standard of living for all of humanity.
    When the earth is changed into a humid dungeon,
    In which Hope like a bat
    Goes beating the walls with her timid wings
    And knocking her head against the rotten ceiling;
    When the rain stretching out its endless train
    Imitates the bars of a vast prison
    And a silent horde of loathsome spiders
    Comes to spin their webs in the depths of our brains,
    All at once the bells leap with rage
    And hurl a frightful roar at heaven,
    Even as wandering spirits with no country
    Burst into a stubborn, whimpering cry.
    — And without drums or music, long hearses
    Pass by slowly in my soul; Hope, vanquished,
    Weeps, and atrocious, despotic Anguish
    On my bowed skull plants her black flag.

    No. The richer countries have no obligation to help a country that can not help itself. If the people of a country are unwilling to change how the country operates, then they deserve to be in desolate conditions.

    Lame, my post didn't go through.


    Yes they should, but they should also be careful HOW. A large influx of aid can actually be harmful in certain situations.

    Though I am really just talking about aid here to disaster-relief or starvation problems, or any of these problems that can be solved with remarkable ease and at little cost to the more rich countries.

    Why not help them by showing how to change and providing assistance?

    Then if they refuse it would be of their own will, if they accept then the aid will be to assist them so that they will benefit humanity more in the future. The world could use more scientist/researchers and the greater the numbers the more likely advancements will come.

    The idea that one country has no reason to help another is true. But humanity will never get anywhere with that mentality.

    The way I feel the question is being asked is by monetary means such as assisting by buying the poor country items or giving it money. If the richer country was to simply teach the poor country how to not be a shit hole then I agree it is wise of the rich country to do so to gain a possibly powerful ally.

    Yeah monetary inflation or assistance to poorer countries like that only leads to problems. The corrupt with abuse it, the economy will become a mess, or they might result in welfare dependent scenario.

    But otherwise if done carefully it should be ok.

    This is very well said. However, we are human beings. We depend on each other and for good reason ; we rise together and we fall together. Imagine these rich countries without these poor countries' cheap labor. Imagine these rich countries without the poor countries' land to build on. We need to realize that these borders that separate us were placed by rich assholes who don't give a fuck about us and that we're all just one big community.

    "“Religions are, by definition, metaphors, after all: God is a dream, a hope, a woman, an ironist, a father, a city, a house of many rooms, a watchmaker who left his prize chronometer in the desert, someone who loves you—even, perhaps, against all evidence, a celestial being whose only interest is to make sure your football team, army, business, or marriage thrives, prospers, and triumphs over all opposition. Religions are places to stand and look and act, vantage points from which to view the world. So none of this is happening. Such things could not occur. Never a word of it is literally true.” .”

    You don't want that, then you'd have another middle east scenario with oil.

    A rich country can have decent labor for a good price within its own borders. The US has all of the resources needed to be self-sufficient (WWII) yet outsources like a bitch to keep healthy relations.

    The poor countries won't die if the rich countries over run them.

    Yeah as much as people hate the west for "stealing resources" but people don't understand the economic downfall if they didn't employ people.

    Outsourcing may be seen a way to get cheap labor, and it is, but some society's depend upon that employment.
