village of 100 people

Recommended Posts

If we could reduce the world’s population to a village of precisely 100 people, with all existing human ratios remaining the same, the demographics would look something like this:

 

60 Asians

 

12 Europeans

 

5 US Americans and Canadians

 

8 Latin Americans

 

14 Africans

 

49 would be female

 

51 would be male

 

82 would be non-white

 

18 white

 

89 heterosexual

 

11 homosexual

 

33 would be Christian

 

67 would be non-Christian

 

5 would control 32% of the entire world’s wealth, and all of them would be US citizens

 

80 would live in substandard housing

 

24 would not have any electricity

(And of the 76% that do have electricity, most would only use it for light at night.)

 

67 would be unable to read

 

1 (only one) would have a college education.

 

50 would be malnourished and 1 dying of starvation

 

33 would be without access to a safe water supply

 

1 would have HIV

 

1 near death

 

 

2 would be near birth

 

 

7 people would have access to the Internet

 

 

If to take a look at the world from this condensed perspective,

the need for acceptance, understanding and education becomes evident.

 

Think of it!

 

If you woke up this morning with more health than sickness,

you are luckier than the million that will not survive this week.

 

If you have never experienced a war,

 

a loneliness of an imprisonment,

 

an agony of tortures

 

or a famine

 

You are happier, than 500 million persons in this world.

 

If you are able to go to church, mosque or synagogue without fear of harassment, arrest, torture or death,

you are happier, than 3 billion persons in this world.

 

If there is a meal in your refrigerator,

 

 

if you are dressed and have got shoes,

 

 

if you have a bed and a roof above your head,

 

 

you are better off, than 75% of people in this world.

 

 

If your parents are still alive and still married,

then you are a rarity.

 

If you have a bank account,

 

 

money in your purse

 

 

and there is some trifle in your coin box,

 

 

you belong to 8% of well-provided people in this world.

 

 

:lol:

 

well i dont know if these stats are correct, but i certainly feel happier with my lot after reading that email!
