There are currently 196 countries that make up the world of today if that is you count Taiwan.
However according to the majority of the nations Taiwan is not considered or recognised as an official country which reduces the number of “official” – does anyone else think that is strange – countries to 195.
This in-spite of the fact that Taiwan operates across the world as an independent country.
However that isn’t the point of this article.
Whether 195 or 196 countries the population of the world is estimated to be 6,987,000,000 souls.
Incidentally it is also estimated that the number of people who have ever lived on the planet is in the region of 108 Billion souls.
But here’s a thought to ponder on –
With 196 countries the World – just think on that the ‘Whole World’ – has 196 Leaders out of a population of almost 7 Billion so can anyone explain why out of them there are so many who are a cross between being totally ignorant – crazy – incompetent or tyrants?
If not tyrants at the very least trainee tyrants?
And then ponder on this:
For all the scientific progress the world has experienced in the last 200 years isn’t it amazing how little mankind has developed and progressed in terms of humanity and how we are still obsessed with not only finding ways but actually killing each other?
