Is the term 'Third World' Ethical?
Assefa
Why people are saying: "third world"? Do you think it is correct ethical behaviour?

Using the term 3rd world is not ethical, the best term to use is developing world.
 

 
Third World, Ethics and Culture
kanthi Basnayake
To my knowledge, the definition of third world derived originally from the economic development of the country. When you use this term it is ethically wrong, since you attach a label of discrimination. Not only that you label the whole culture society of the country, when this label inculcates into the mindset of people it will gradually change their culture and the social behaviour. Hence it is unethical and discriminative.
