    Then we are the "no-longer-developing world", I presume?

    I always wondered who the 2nd World was , so thanks for the enlightenment.

    Not to be a stickler, but technically speaking the "3rd world" no longer exists, it was a term to distinguish between the 1st world (westernized democracy), the 2nd world (the USSR / China and their respective satellite states) and the 3rd world which was essentially everyone else who didn't fit into these categories.

    Don't mean to lecture, but if we want to be politically correct we would call it the "Developing World"

    Of course then again I am by no means politically correct all the time, so who cares hehe.

    Personally I think some crimes deserve death penalty but anything can go wrong.So it's better for 10 criminals that deserved to die to live another day,than kill an innocent.Here in Greece,in a few cases of really terrible crimes,the criminals were found dead in prison.Either commited suicide or the others killed them.
    What's worse after all?Have a quick death or rot in prison?

    started a topic Call for an End of Executions

    Call for an End of Executions

    The United Nations General Assembly endorsed the call for a worldwide suspension of executions. Please show your indignation against any apologist of the Death Penalty, and don't forget that Japan too, larghely unnoticed by the world public, is still executing people.
    We should have left this way behind us by now.
