Dale, I agree that people generally have no clue what is going on a
little behind the scenes. People everywhere see what they want to
believe. But brasil already gets a lot of press for it's poverty
(whereas we hear little or nothing of a thriving yoeman class), and
america gets far to much press on it's supposed wealth and hedonism.
People around the world could be pardoned for thinking that every
american lives like a prince or princess.
I don't think it hurts to try and correct that mis-impression whenever possible. Especially if it could save someone a very dangerous, expensive, and altogether unpleasant and un-necessary experience. After all, the truly impoverished rarely if ever manage to get to the US . Most of the money is flowing to families who were not utterly desperate in the first place - if my co-workers are in any way indicative.
