A fair question

Acerbic, perceptive Irish thinker - or tinker Kevin Myers doesn't give a tinker's - or thinker's - cuss about "the developing world".

"Developing what, pray?" he asks. What indeed? What exactly is being developed?

This is a fair question. The assumption behind the word "developing" is that a country would improve, if only obstacles were removed and, by implication, more aid were forthcoming from the "developed" world. The begging bowl is out, and questions are begged. What is being developed in Somalia for instance?

[A] fine land of violent, Kalashnikov-toting, khat-chewing, girl-circumcising, permanently tumescent layabouts.

The Islamic world, and much of non-Muslim sub-Saharan Africa, is not "developing". It is regressing. Oil money aside, Western aid and medicine keeps alive and fecund a population that might otherwise learn the lessons of necessity, a population that has no incentive to change its primitive ways.

"Developing" is a euphemism. Like the latest academic term for failure, "not yet competent", it gives false hope. "Developing" is a weasel-word for primitive, backward, savage and hopeless.
