    Hey guys..!

    I just wana discuss about the exact meaning of "third world". Here we ofter hear remarks as "third world" country from ppl of western country's and feel offended..!! But here is what wiki says about Third world.


    First World: the United States and its allies.

    Second World: the Soviet Union and its allies.

    Third World: Non-aligned and neutral countries


    "The term 'Third World' arose during the Cold War to define countries that remained non-aligned or not moving at all with either capitalism and NATO (which along with its allies represented the First World) or communism and the Soviet Union (which along with its allies represented the Second World). This definition provided a way of broadly categorizing the nations of the Earth into three groups based on social, political, and economic divisions

    Third World - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    So, by this if a country currently called as "Third world" will (if)became devoloped in near future ,then even then that country will be called as "third world"?? cause it is not aligned??

    or

    If any country in this present devoloping state(with poverty) will join USA and its allies ..! then will that country be called as first world country??

    or

    It is just a remark for devoloping country(south asia and middle east) for insult or make them feel offended...??

    NOTE :-

    1) No trolling please

    2) constructive arguments plss
