These powerful illustrations portray the real power equations of the world
The world has unequal and discriminatory ways of behaving with the people. However greatly the rich and powerful try to brag about the world being an equal place where everyone has equal rights, the truth is far from that situation. Take a look at these illustrations, which very clearly and cleverly show the true power equations of the world.
It is such an irony that there exists such a difference in things which fulfill the appetite of the poor and rich kids. A poor child is seen eating crumbles of food because he does not have enough money to have a full-fledged meal, whereas the rich kids try to fulfill their appetite by gadgets and gizmos. They seem to be only wanting these, when half of the kids of this world are sleeping with an empty stomach.
2 Their resources (poor countries) = Our Charity to them (rich countries)
Most of the poor countries are attracted by rich countries, and they keep donating them money, and say all this is charity. While the hidden truth in this scenario is this- the poor countries are sitting on huge amounts of precious resources they don’t even know, and the rich countries try to enter the poor countries in the name of charities and actually dig out the resources of the poor nations, taking more than they give. And then they say, the world is an equal place.
3 Slaves of the technology
While all of us may be thinking we are connected to the world and are really happy and hip with our Iphones, but actually we all seem to have become slaves of this technology. Have you ever wondered what would life be without these smartphones? No, I suppose, because now this has become a survival tool for most of you, but try leaving it for a few days, and take enjoyment and peace from your surroundings and people around you. Come out of your FOMO, and live the real life.
4 Misplaced Honours
It is really sad scenario that the wars are fought by the soldiers, with many of them losing their body parts and many even losing their lives, but the honours and medals are put on the Generals, who just give out orders. The real heroes should be rewarded, agreed they have worked up their way to reach their, but what about the soldiers who are facing the ammunition of the enemies, don’t they deserve that appreciation.
5 War Business
Today’s wars are much more than just protecting the security on the nation. Most of the wars are supported by big business tycoons and media conglomerates who take out every penny of profit from every bullet that is fired against and by the soldiers. It is considered to be a thriving business, mostly running in the name of fear. Create fear amongst the citizens about the security of the nation and then justify the need to engage in a war with an enemy state. The fear of business is the most profitable one in today’s world.
6 What is happiness? Where is happiness?
This simple yet powerful illustration show how happiness is found in the simplest of the things and it can still remain in oblivion even after having being endowed with everything. Just look at the heart-warming smile of the poor kid after he got a football to play with, and the rich kid is having all the perks and pleasures of life and it still seen with a frowning expression.
7 Good old childhood days
How many of you feel this today? I suppose everyone, with so much of competition, power politics and stress that we all fell after having grown up, all of us want to live the good old childhood days again. We long for that stress free play time, that hearty laughter, and no worries environment all around us. Don’t we feel stupid to have always wanted to grow up sooner, and now that we are there, happiness seems to have just vanished and looks like an old summer dream.
