The most important distinction between a developed country and a developing country may not be the amount of wealth, but the champion of human rights. Some people say that America may be turning into a third world country because there are more and more poor people in America. I think if America turns into a third world country, it is because there are more and more human rights violations. This downward trend in human rights in America starts from the US government. New immigrants contribute to it by not learning the language and the culture of championing human rights. They can be both the human rights violators and the victims that allow human rights violations to continue.
It is reporters like Nina Bernstein who are trying to keep America from slipping into a third world country. I wish that there are more of them.
