It's a real pity that there are injustices like you said in our world. But If I remember right I can say there are a lot of agitations and bureaucratic malpractices in some states of Africa. And so long than there are stuff about which I mentioded ordinary citizens are suffering.
I can also argue that we (I mean industrialized countries) are partially responsible for a state of those poor countries. First we abused those countries for years when we took colonies. Then inwardly muzzy countries managed become independent. But it was only a beginning; they had and still have to try to balance their unbalanced government, solve a pile of inside problems etc. Many of those countries are still dept bondage for industrial countries. In reality this means that they can't develop themselves because they have to use their money paying those depts. And usually those money comes from primary production when they sell their products (bananas, coffee, tea, cocoa etc. agricultural products) to creditor countries. And that industry doesn't need very high educated people who could evolve their country. When the folk is poor and low-bred rulers can fail it more easily. And if we have a poor and primitive folk we have also primitive rules like those rapes tell. (please note: I don't want overgeneralize; I don't mean that all folks would be primitive there).
Ofcouse we can't only blame other countries. There are onus between citizens too. They should require their privileges more and try harder. But we could help them to do it. More than we help now.
