Lucia. Thank you for your contribution to this topic. I agree that the concept of “developing and developed country” come from western country. But I am not sure if there is any clear definition of these terms. Nevertheless, despite of the political background of all country on the earth, my understanding is that developed country is a well organized country with sufficient resource in term of food (agricultural matter, such as farming) , education, healthy and trading and the living standard of citizens in these countries is generally acceptable, i.e. at least they don’t have to worry about for food and their basic need can be satisfied. On the other hand, developing country may be luck of resource, such as technician, knowledge, natural resource or money, to develop these areas and the living standard of citizens is harsh and unbearable. The poor situation may due to harsh land or low rainfall.
I agree that education is a continuing progress, as there is a maxim “live to learn, learn to live”. Therefore, it can be said that long life continuing studying should be a target for everyone. So you are right, everybody should be humble, therefore, it may impossible for anyone or any countries to claim that “I finished my education” or “we can teach the rest of the world a lot of lessons”.
Nevertheless, I think that there may be some misunderstanding with my point in my previous post. What I mean is that there are many children; they don’t even have a chance to start with their studying, no matter of what kind of level, kindergarten, high school, and college whatever. The lack of education may due to lack of resource which I have just mentioned. Therefore, the point is that, despite of every imaginable political motive, if a rich country is willing to provide necessary equipment, knowledge or even load, to help these children, it is highly likely that the children will be directly benefited from the aid, as least, they can write their name by themselves. Also, If a farmer have necessary knowledge or tools to improve the productive with limited resources, the residue faming products can be sold for money, as a result there living standard can be improved.
Although, general speaking, US is a rich developed country. However, help or aid are not necessary coming from US. Beside, there are many countries in the world are able to offer help to other countries when necessary.
