The Unfairness of Governments in Other Countries

I grew up in the United States and am a natural born citizen. During my childhood years my only worries were who was I going to play with and what were we going to play. Little did I know, or even think about, other kids my age halfway around the world were growing up with feudalism in Pakistan. Heck, I didn’t even know what the word feudalism meant or where Pakistan was. I never thought about how many freedoms and liberties citizens of the United States had and took for granted. I didn’t realize this until I was in college and took a course in world politics.

This world politics was a real eye-opener for me. It opened my eyes to the severity of how unfair other countries treated their own citizens. Take Pakistan, for instance, There is an elite group of politicians and landowners that make up about 5% of the population. The rest of the people, the peasants, are at the mercy of this group as they own approximately two-thirds of the farm land in Pakistan. Their laws don’t seem to apply to the elitists as they are continuously getting away with criminal behavior. There was one case about a dancer from the red light district who married the son of a former Governor of Punjab. After years of physical and verbal abuse, she mustered up the courage to leave him. He apparently did not like the idea of her leaving him and decided to throw acid on her face in front of her young son. These actions left her permanently scarred and disfigured. The saddest part is that justice was never served because he was the son of a politician. He got away scot-free with violently attacking this innocent lady. This story alone has made me feel so fortunate and grateful that I live within the democratic society of the United States of America.
