First World Problems

(YouTube link)

These modern irritations sound completely ridiculous in a different context. This video was produced by The Gift of Water as part of their series about first world problems. The videos bring attention to Water Is Life, an organization dedicated to bringing a safe water supply to everyone. Link

On the contrary, the purpose of the "first world problems" internet gag is to convey exactly this message; first world problems are not problems. Regardless, this video makes a striking contrast.

How about somebody sends this video to the governments that created terrible lives for their population instead of making us feel guilty? Our problems are clearly not equal, but that's just because we've created an awesome society that works.

It does put things into perspective, though. No matter who's fault it is that people live in such awful conditions, I get very tired of people who live a very good life complaining about things that are a product of their wealthy lifestyle.
