Is there even such a thing?

Though it may much ado of nothing, but why is it we never hear of the “Second World”. It’s always third world this third world that, and of late “first world slipping to third world”. If we’re first world, wouldn’t we be slipping to “second world” before hitting third?

    How come there aren’t 10 levels? Why only 3? LOL.

    The distinction (from the Cold War) was more political than economic. The West (we’re #1!), the Soviet bloc, and everybody else.

    Thank you Jonathan, considering the totalitarian direction this country has taken these past twelve years, then it would indeed more accurate to state “slipping to second world”.
