"Third World" has been boggling my mind for a few months. I sought the reason behind this term but not yet able to have any qualified reasons. Is this a reality or just an ideology? What is the measuring scale of such stereotyping. Maybe it's a different socio-economic class or maybe it's their first time-around or maybe still baffled with cold war.
Don't we need to change this pocket-size political orientation?
Countries who claim to be
first world are in blue.
second world are in red.
third world are in green.
