If we could shrink the Earth's population to a village of precisely 100
people.... with all existing human ratios remaining the same, it would look
There would be 57 Asians, 21 Europeans, 14 from the Western Hemisphere
(North and South) and 8 Africans.
52 would be female; 48 would be male
70 would be nonwhite; 30 white.
70 would be non-Christian; 30 Christian.
59% of the entire world's wealth would be in the hands of only 6 people and
all 6 would be citizens of the United States.
80 would live in substandard housing.
70 would be unable to read.
50 would suffer from malnutrition.
1 would be near death , 1 would be near birth
Only 1 would have a college education.
Only one would own a computer
When one considers our world from such an incredibly compressed perspective,
the need for both tolerance and understanding becomes glaringly apparent...
