It is not a failed state HailChina! It's been raped by two colonial powers, the Spanish and then th ...

The Pope told them that Catholics do not have to breed like rabbits didnt he? What does them being raped by 'colonial powers' have to do with their birth rate anyway?

And blah blah. I am poor as hell and I live in a wealthy capitalist nations. Poor is poor. It doesnt matter where you are. If I made a shanty like that to live in I would get arrested in Australia. The young English girls that cannot afford to buy tampons are just as poor as African girls that cannot afford to buy tampons. Poor is poor.

And the only real way true world government can come about is to appeal to the global masses. You do not know what world government would be like but obviously it could not allow leaders like Duterte to come to power. The guy is a moron. Same with guys like Widodo. Indonesia isnt a failed state but Widodo is a moron. Maduro. The world is full of nations that are led by total morons. It is ridiculous. Leaders of nations will need to be approved/confirmed by the world government and mostly they will just deal with social issues because there will be global rules in place that relieve national leaders of a lot of their responsibilities.

Birth rates need to be controlled by making it illegal for the poor to breed. Laws like this need to be global. You can easily make a sugarbaby of middleclass females so there is no point in ultra poor people existing anymore. There is nothing for them to do because of the big fourth industrial revolution. There are not enough services jobs for all these people. The middleclass need to be the new poor. It sucks to be middle class. The spice will still flow. The wealthy still have an advantage. We do not need the ultra poor. They are obsolete.

The world economy can be a lot bigger and more profits can be made.

The Romans were worried about steam. A Roman Emperor asked "What will we do with the slaves?" So they used steam power to open a temple door and forgot it. Elites should not fear a larger global economy that has ended real poverty. The global government will be backed by the worlds largest multinational corporations and it will be private. It will be these multinational corporations that make a global living wage possible. Poor people in the Philippines and every other third world nation will want to be global citizens first with access to the global living wage rather than citizens of third world nations that do not provide adequate welfare. In return for global citizenship and access to the living wage global citizens will be required to do a certain amount of non-military national service which will be linked to the world governments needs and the needs of the largest multinationals that back world government. The non-military national service could be work at Walmart or work driving an Uber car or whatever is needed. The wealthy will need to do national service too but they can pay a tax to avoid it. There will be no freeloaders. It will work because multinationals have the resources to make it work and they will be able to make great profits out of the situation. With cost of production low it will seem as though people on living wage are getting more than they are really getting. All they will be really getting is the waste of corporate overproduction. They will all be able to spend a percentage of their living wage on entertainment and this will funnel them into the businesses of the multinationals backing the living wage and one world currency ( which will be a mix of the terra currency idea and the bancor currency idea but with each national currency making up the basket as well as commodities and services until completion of transition to exchange rate parity when we achieve a true one world currency ) The BRICS Bank and AIIB and the IMF/World Bank will be merged and managed by the world government and they will act as the Keyenes International Clearing Union to help nations avoid large annual surplus or deficit as well as investing in infrastructure projects. And yeah, for the most part world government will be run by the same people that are the powers that be right now but the political and media classes will be changed dramatically. A lot of those people will be put in jail or worse before all of this stuff comes about. There will be no great wealth distribution and wealth disparity will increase not decrease. Society will be based on equity not unfair equality but it will be civilized and ensure that every global citizen has basic security and basic needs covered ( which will never be enough for females so there will always be sugarbabies ). The global poor will be respected and valued as societies reserves that contribute through their non-military national service and the great things they will help to create through global Capital Works projects. There is a lot of work to do and every one of the global poor can be of value to society. As long as basic needs are covered and the poor have security and feel valued then wealth disparity is not an issue to worry about. World Government will be closer to a board than a western government and it will be private. World Government will have a private army that will be supported by national militaries. Every global citizen will take a chip in their hand or head for security and to make purchases with the digital global currency. The world will no longer just work on money but also on a social credit system. Not all citizens will be equal. There will be different levels of citizenship. There will be political privilege again.

It will be very easy to but all of the new systems in place after The Great Tribulation which will be soon. There will be One World Government and all citizens of the global community will take the mark - including you. I have the end of history all worked out. It has nothing to do with liberal democracy. I am the last man. And the first.

Keep on espousing your thoughts, I always need a good laugh.  So naïve and so misinformed but even lazy parasites on welfare who have a deluded sense of self-entitlement  (yes there are a few of those) in Australia live better than the poor in 90% of the world.

Sadly the poverty levels in countries like the Philippines are not dropping as the poor keep getting hit with natural disasters that literally put them back in to square one all the time.  It's a horrific vicious cycle they are entrapped in.  No thanks to the Catholic Church for their anti-birth control stance and the fact that the poor have little to no access to health care and higher education or if they do their attendance is sporadic, eg: a semester a year or perhaps every two years due to abject poverty. It's not unknown for many poor Filipo people in the poorer provinces to take 6 to 10 years to complete an undergraduate degree.

It's just as appalling what happens if a Filipino wants to work overseas, they have to pay a hefty (for them) fee to the agents who also charge a hefty fee to the employer.  Many of the maids for example are mistreated and have to endure horrific living and working conditions which often include being raped (around 30% of maids are thought to be raped by their employers) or beaten, in some cases the beatings are so bad that the maid dies or commits suicide to escape the violence. Withholding pay, or extortionate accommodation costs in a couple of countries add to the misery. I've seen first hand how many "guest workers" live in Dubai for example. It's frequently 8-10 to a bedroom and as many in the lounge room, all being charged upwards of 60-70% of their salary for such living conditions.

When the contract expires, it's home they go and then restart the entire cycle over again.

The cost of living in western nations means that the poor in the west are every bit as poor as the poor in the third world. No money is no money. You retarded surplus capitalists push this idea that the western poor live better to try tonlessen the chances of us all rising up and kill you all in violent rebellion.

When we do hit critical mass do you really believe that the so-called 1% will be spared? Minions like you are going to be in some trouble. Keep up your wretched classism because  it only helps the masses. Scum like you disgusts the majority.

And welfare is a right. We have been fighting for the welfare state, universal healthcare and workers right and protections since the beginning of time. Worthless scum like you always lose in the end. Neoliberals have only made genuine gains since the GFC and they do not amount to much. Hiding behind females, gays, minorities, Muslims etc isn't going to save scum like you. Millions have fought and died for civilized society that does not treat the masses as if we are slaves and a new war is coming. Look how angry everyone is. Angry at western 'elites' _ the scum you work for you lowly minion. Watch out.

Dutere is just another corrupt leader in a long list of self aggrandising politicians and it could be argued he's a lightweight when it comes to self promotion.

Sadly you're right with the HK situation though most maids there are in good hands compared to Dubai, the KSA, and Malaysia who are probably 3 of the worst offenders for mistreatment of Filipino maids and construction workers.
