IF the world were a village of 100 people


Hello everyone. I’m Tama writing a blog.

I am Japanese.
I’m typing English while looking up. I am very poor at English. Please note that it is difficult to see.

The story this time is “If the world is a village of 100 people”.

Mankind has evolved. However, as it evolved, so did greed.

A human being who lives only by that desire. Many people have created disparities, destroyed the earth, and are still wondering, “Can we live today?”

With the cooperation of everyone on the planet, hunger and conflict can be eliminated. But why …

It is indispensable for the earth in the future to be happy not only in part but in everyone.

I want to tell as many people as possible that “all human beings are earthlings,” “peace,” and “life is equal.”
I will write an article so that this word can be conveyed.


How would you compare 7 billion people to 100 people?

In the world today,

more than 7 billion people live.

If this world were shrunk to the size of a village of 100 people,

what would it look like?


59 would be Asian

14 would be American (North, Central and South)

14 would be African

12 Would be European

1 would be from the South Pacific


50 would be women,

50 would be men.

30 would be children,

70 would be adults.

70 would be nonwhite,

30 would be white.

90 would be heterosexual,

10 would be homosexual.


33 would be Christians

21 would be Muslims

15 would be Hindus

6 would be Buddhists

5 would be animists

6 would believe in other religions

14 would be without any religion or atheist.


15 would speak Chinese

7 English

6 Hindi

6 Russian

4 Arabic

3 Bengali

3 Portuguese

The other would speak Indonesian, Japanese, German, French, or some other language.


In such a village with so many sorts of folks, it would be very important to learn

to understand people different from yourself and to accept other as they are.

Of the 100 people in this village:


20 are undernourished 1 is dying of starvation, while 15 are overweight.


Of the wealth in this village, 6 people own 59%

74 people own 39%, and 20 people share the remaining 2%.


Of the energy of this village,

20 people consume 80%,

and 80 people share the remaining 20%.

20 have no clean, safe water to drink.

56 have access to sanitation.

15 adults are illiterate.

1 has a university degree.

7 have computers.


in one year,

1 person in the village will die,

but in the same year,

2 babies will be born,

so that at the year’s end the number of village will be 101.

If you do not live in fear of death by bombardment,

or of attack, landmines, or of rape or kidnapping by armed groups,

then you are more fortunate than 20, who do.

If you can speak and act according to you faith

and your conscience without harassment,

imprisonment, torture or death,

then you are more fortunate than, who can not.


If you have money in the bank,

money in your wallet and spare change somewhere around the house,

then you are among the richest 8.

Surplus production

Humans have even entered the stage of surplus production of the consumption necessary for survival in the society. This surplus production is provided to humans engaged in unproductive activities. These unproductive activities are so-called play activities, but human beings can maintain further productivity by playing leisure time.

The play maintained by this leisure-creating productivity is said to be the origin of the so-called culture that makes human beings human, and many human beings have unproductive activity patterns called hobbies and themselves. He wants to do this hobby apart from the labor of buying a living and the activity of consuming its products.

Animals have a style of developing their abilities through play, which has pragmatic implications for growth, whereas human play often associates pragmatic aspects with what. Often not known. Human play and hobbies continue even after biological maturity, and there is even a tendency for hobbyists to be respected, especially in terms of social values.

Really mysterious ……

1 It is done on a free will.
2 It is spatially and temporally isolated from other acts.
3 It is uncertain what the result will be.
4 It is unproductive.
5 There are rules.
6 It is not believed that it must be in life.

It is respected for being good at playing.

Isn’t there something more important?


If you can read this message,

that means you are probably lucky.

At the end

I am a small earthling.

I want to set the time of the Doomsday Clock back.

And I hope that people all over the world can live in peace and happiness.

Thank you for reading to the end.
