Steve is a commenter who constantly apologizes for India and Indian culture and religion for unknown reasons. Here is his latest:
The percentage of the population living below the international poverty line is falling though, even according to the UN and World Bank. The UN millennium development goals report has the poverty rate falling from 51% in 1990 to 22% in 2015. In 2005, the World Bank had 41.6% living below the international poverty line.
But 1 dollar 25 is fuck all. Its enough to stay alive but that’s it. So hundreds of millions will be living on more than 1 dollar 25, maybe 1 dollar 50, maybe 2 or 3. But they are still pretty damn poor. India is a long way off having developed country standards of living for most of the population. But getting most people above the IPL is a good start I suppose, its progress.
It’s shit! It’s more lies! The poverty level will not drop to 25% in 3 years! No way!
Only 41% were below the poverty line in 2005, and even less now? What crap that is! Do you realize that many of those above the poverty level are starving?! The malnutrition rate is 50-55%. 50% of the children are permanently stunted from lack of food. So, according to the Indian state’s figures, many of those who are out of poverty are malnourished, and their children are permanently stunted from lack of food!
India doesn’t look to me like the underdeveloped sub-Saharan African countries ie royally fucked with no sign of progress. I think India will develop and have a significant middle class. The World Bank predicts it will overtake the American economy in size by like 2050 or something. I hope they get wind of toilet paper before then lol.
You are right. The starvation and the shitting outdoors is much worse than your average Black African country. I will give this much to Black Africans. I think average Black African at least cares about his people to some extent or another. Their leaders are nothing but thieves and probably do not care, but the African people do.
This what Steve doesn’t get about India. Indian people don’t care! Why is there so much poverty, starvation, shitting outdoors, homelessness, disease, horrific slums and open sewers in India? Because Indians don’t care! Higher caste Indians who run the country do not care about all of those people who are starving, dying of disease, holed up in slums, sleeping on the street, living beside open sewers, etc.
According to the Indian Hindu way of thinking, those people deserve what they are getting! And it’s nearly a sin to try to help them. At best, it’s pointless and useless. They are getting what they get due to karma, and those living more fortunate lives have already gone through Hell and have no obligation to try to help their lessers. Wealthy Indians give to their Hindu temples instead of giving to the poor because they do not want to see their money wasted on those scum low caste people.
India is probably one of the worst countries on the face of the Earth. Not only does it have the worst suffering on the planet, but the average Indian doesn’t give a flying fuck about all of the horrific suffering around him. He isn’t going to help out at best and at worst, he thinks they are getting what they deserve.
All of this goes back to Indian culture, which all goes back to Indian religion, Hinduism.
Fuck Indian culture (Hindu culture).
Fuck Indian religion (Hindu religion).
