He also didn't say the entirety of Asia was poor. He was showing how many people in Asia are poor.

damn google, how can you be so ignorant?

Asia is the biggest continent on the planet with most people living on it.

Asia is not just China, India, Japan and South Korea.
Asia is also pakistan, uzbekistan, tajikistan, afganistan, turkmenistan, azerbeijan, georgia, turkey, israel, yemen, jordan, iraq, iran, saudi arabia, uae, kuwait, oman, yemen, nepal, bangladesh, vietnam, laos, burma, thailand, cambodia, mongolia, and a part of russia.

And that's just from the top of my head.

None of these are first world countries. ALL of them are piss poor, and even the big oil sandgoogles like saudi arabia, united arab emirates, are poorer than any european country on average, because the oil money goes to a few rich families, and is spent on golden supercars, and skyscrapers, while the rest of their population lives in slums.

Saying that asia is poor is the only good generalization here. The only 2 'rich' continents are North America, and Europe (im excluding australia here because it's mostly uninhabited), and the Europe part is debatable because while the western nations may be unimaginably rich, southern and eastern are also poor.

While I don't know the numbers, poverty in Saudi Arabia is a huge problem that is constantly hidden from the media.

It's a half true statment at worst.

Saudi Arabia, sure. But not for Qatari, Kuwaiti, or Emirati citizens.
They're well off beyond belief.

Yes, that could be plausible with all the millionaires grouped up.
User avatar
#77 - iviagic (09/29/2016) [-]
No.
I'm talking about typical citizens.

There are no slums in those countries in terms of actual Qataris or Emiratis. The only slums there are from the foreign workers.
People who are native to Qatar, Kuwait, the UAE, etc. receive unbelievable benefits. The people there are so wealthy that 18% of their population has diabetes.

#78 - strobler (09/29/2016) [-]
Yeah, I said "the millionaires grouped up" as in, it's a country made for millionaires, where they all group up but not the poor.

A Disneyland in the desert so to speak.

No.

I'm talking about CITIZENS.
Families that are BORN there. Not millionaires that moved in.

Oh sorry for the confusion.
Looked into it and it seems true.
Weird though, since there are so ridiculously low taxes.
How can the government give them so many benefits?
User avatar
#103 - iviagic (09/29/2016) [-]
Also I'd like to add that the Middle Eastern countries are diversifying their economies piece by piece.

Oil is just a leverage to build infrastructure, skyscrapers, etc.

They're slowly shifting their economies to service and tourism.

User avatar
#92 - iviagic (09/29/2016) [-]
Oil.
These countries are incredibly wealthy, and they give their citizens massive benefits.


At my university, for example, we had about half a dozen Qatari exchange students who were literally being paid by their government to study abroad.

Then why do they flood europe with migrants who can't read or write or have any money?

With all the europoor memes the US still has more poverty and a bigger income difference than europe

i don't think he was generalizing - he was just saying that there are a lot more poor countries in asia and having separate gumball glasses for each of them would simply be unpractical for his presentation
he isn't talking about japan and south korea because he is focusing on the number of poor people

So get informed through non bias channels and multiple sources. It's part of your job as a participating member of a democratic state to build an understanding and vote accordingly.

Or y'know... Don't. Technically that's also exercising your democratic rights as well, though it doesn't look as good as the other thing.

Federal Republic.

you do realize that a federal republic is still democratic right?
User avatar
#206 - serapharbiter (22 hours ago) [-]
Has democratic processes but generally not considered democratic all in itself.

The U.S. is also a constitutional representative democracy, is probably what you're thinking of.

>>#201 that's what I said, didn't I?
User avatar
#208 - serapharbiter (22 hours ago) [-]
Not quite, its a sensitive topic really.

If it were (Democratic Republic) then voting would actually be majority based instead of representative. The democracy is limited in a sense, and in context with >>#161 , it is more technically a (Federal) Republic than anything else.

Aim to say Representative Republic next time. That works better.
#74 - anon (09/29/2016) [-]
I'm voting republican simply because it's the party that wants to repeal citizenship based taxation. If that shit doesn't stop, I'm going to be forced to renounce citizenship, and I don't really want to do that.

#15 - anon (09/28/2016) [-]
I like the thought process here. Everyone is always told "Go vote!", when really we should be told to "Go vote based on an informed decision!"

When I was a senior in high school, people came to us and told us to register and vote. At the end they took questions and one smart girl in our class pointed out that people shouldn't just go vote for the sake of voting. It only matters if you know what you're voting for.

That being said, it only takes about 5 minutes to look at the candidates on the ballot and look at their policies. That's usually what I do because I've never heard of the people running for senate or the local treasury. Keep in mind the election for smaller offices is often based on popular vote and will usually have a larger impact on an individual than the president.
