Look It Up
I’ve rarely heard the term “Third World Nation” used correctly. Today I found a funny response to the ongoing misuse of that label. EscapeArtist.com is identifying Chile as “First World.”
What a great idea! They’re fighting inaccuracy by redefining the First World. Since “Third World” remains to be incorrectly defined as undeveloped and poor, I guess they’re right about Chile, with its progressive infrastructure, stable economy and cultivated lifestyles.
They must figure that people who won’t use a dictionary probably won’t look at a map, either!
