Relativeness. What's rich, whats poor? For western societies I'm poor,
but compared to all humans on this planet, I'm rich.
I guess most people are not aware about the situation on this planet.
In Germany many folks are unfruchtbar. This planet is overpopulated.
Those unfruchtbar Germans aren't thinking about this, they don't help
children from other people, they try everything that is possible by in
vitro fertilization instead.
The children of the richest should survive.
