If we could turn the population of the earth into a small community of 100 people, keeping the same proportions we have today, it would be something like this:
14 Americans (from North and South America)
01 Australian (Oceania)
10 are homosexuals
33 are Christian (Catholics, Protestants and Orthodox)
18 are Muslims
16 are Hindus
16 are non-religious
6 are Buddhists
11 practice other religions
41 live without basic sanitation
16 live without an improved water source
6 people own 59% of the entire wealth of the community
13 are hungry or malnourished
14 can't read
only 7 are educated at a secondary level
only 8 have a computer
only 4 have an internet connection
1 adult, aged 15-49, has HIV/AIDS.
Of the village's total annual expenditures of just over US$ 3,000,000 per year:
US$ 181,000 is spent on weapons and warfare...
US$ 159,000 is spent on education...
US$ 132,000 is spent on health care.
25 live on US$ 1.00 per day or less...
47 live on US$ 2.00 per day or less.
If you keep your food in a refrigerator, your clothes in a closet, you have a roof over your head and have a bed to sleep in, then you are richer than 75% of the entire world population.
If you have a bank account, you're one of the 30 wealthiest people in the world.
