Wow - comprehending the naivete of such a simple-minded and non-integrative worldview which is, unfortunately shared by most and probably one of the largest contributers to the mess we're in and only making bigger every day makes me remember that I sometimes wonder why oh why didn't I take the BLUE PILL!!
Oh - and thank goodness. Why SHOULDN'T first world countries get to share the misery of their less fortunate bretheren, anyway?
Are we together on this dismal spinning chunk of rock in the middle of nothing or not?
'Nuff said, yo!
Look if I was running a business I wouldn't want people writing negative reviews either!
Think of it this way: bad businessmen have children to feed too and you can't starve their poor kids just because of some arbitrarily designated bad business practices, correct?
PS: Don't forget to think of the children!
I'm sorry let me address the 'point' more specifically so that you don't give some BS retort: By the parent's 'point' that violence and other crimes increases with increased population density crime in urban areas should be continually increasing as the population density does. But it's not. In fact as mentioned it is DECREASING. So the point is invalid. Get it?
The 'amount' of crime will necessarily be more because there are more people. That isn't necessarily because there are more people in a smaller space but simply because there are 'more' people. Which is just what it has to do with the parents point, btw.
I still fail to grasp the 'necessity' part. If family is that important then don't live half a planet away from them and then whine about it. Change your priorities because the world isn't going to change to suit you.
Then don't fly. I'm not sure where your sense of entitlement comes from but you'd do well to lose it asap.
This is a ridiculous comparison. You HAVE to have oxygen or you will die. You do NOT have to fly across the ocean: plenty of people get along just fine without it, so you know.
"It is why Cities have always struggled." [citation needed. Especially with regard to 'always'.]
Violent crime rates are down across the board so wft ARE you talking about?
Funny though how the West is all huggy kissy with some of the worst of their governments, isn't it? (Think: Saudi Arabia).

Speak for yourself!
All the disadvantages of renting and all the disadvantges of owning are yours when you purchase a walled-garden iOS device!
Remember in 1984 when Apple had that superbowl-commercial against 'big brother'?
Yeah well that was a promotion for THEIR freedom, not yours or mine.
If they want to own the phone then they shouldn't sell it to us!
