Some will argue that 3rd world nations increased their standard of living. My argument is let the third world worry about the third world, and let them pull themselves up by their own bootstraps]. We had all the resources in the world, here in the west, to maintain healthy and sustainable economies for a period much longer than a few decades, but greed done us in.
That's the thing. Capitalism has allowed multinational corporations to exploit third world labour whilst abandoning - what's left of - the middle/working class in the West. The gentlemen who spoke in that video is David Simon, creator of The Wire. The second season of the television show analyses the death of the working class and the diminishment of labour, whilst looking into the cons of economic globalisations and encumbered capitalism. It's a fantastic fictional depiction of a hauntingly real issue most of the West is facing.

They are morally bankrupt, that's for sure.

USA has insane idiots. Many happen to be racists, arrogant bigots & religious brainwashed buffoons. It started in elementary school & continued in universities with delusional, attention-seeking bullying, mockery behavior (even during a speech while a teacher's watching). I love how intolerant "teachers" are when you don't celebrate their holiday commercialism bullcrap.

Oh, act "normal".
Buy gifts even if your family has no money.
Feel guilty if you have no clothes to show off.
Force yourself to eat Easter eggs, pretend turkey's great, eat candy all day, wear your Halloween pumpkin costume, sing songs on stage & put on Santa's elf uniform or else Ms. Teacher will feel hurt by your rejection of trashy holidays.

I'll accept the insane idiot part as we have people that shoot other people even children for no apparent reason at all and then Congress can't get anything done about gun laws. But I honestly didn't know that teachers pushed holidays on children in school.
