Why First World Countries Seek to Dominate Third World Countries

February 1, 2014

A trend has been observed, where first world countries continually seek to dominate third world countries. A question arises as to why they seek to do this: especially seeing that the dominance is often achieved at very high costs (sometimes including human life costs).

Now the first reason as to why first world countries seek to dominate third world countries is because they see the said third world countries as good sources of raw materials for their industries. This is what keeps the levels of industrialization in the third world low, which in turn leads to low levels of development and even scenarios where people living in relatively fertile countries have to rely on food aid.

The second reason as to why first world countries seek to dominate third world countries is because they see the said third world countries as good markets for their finished products.

The third reason as to why first world countries seek to dominate third world countries is because they see the said third world countries as possible hosts for their strategic military installations. Thus, for instance, a first world country, having achieved dominance over a third world country, proceeds to install an anti-missile defense shield, or to station a war ship there. This is important in a world where global influence still depends on military power.
