What's unfair is that the western world have spent trillions of their
own money developing everything from steam power to air travel to space
travel, advanced medicines and, yes, even the internet. And the
developing nations benefit from all that work by being able to take
advantage of the finished product without having had to foot the bill.

Now you think that somehow that's not enough, that the western nations
"owe" you even more than that? I think when western nations can tax
developing nations to support these projects, just like they taxed me,
then you can have a "fair" leg to stand on.
