Meanwhile, many parts of the former “third world” look like this. That’s why the terms first and third world are now obsolete. It’s all about the ascending world and the descending world.

If you are still unironically using the terms “first world” and “developed world” I assume you have not actually traveled the world.

Up until ~2010, Blue America managed to run some of the most on-balance desirable cities on the planet, places like SF & Seattle that attracted talent from all over. Now they aren’t even models for their own country. Not first choice = not “first world”.
