Madeline Albright’s strange theory on global conflict

The former Secretary of State has an interesting view of our times.
Albright’s message centered on the need for equality – not just domestically, but also on a global scale.
“If we were all rich, that would be very nice,” Albright said. “If we were all poor, it would be too bad, but we would be the same. What the problem is now is the poor know what the rich have as a result of information technology and the spread, generally, of knowledge. And, it creates a whole new host of problems in terms of disquiet and anger.”
So if the world was full of nothing but poor and ignorant people, we would have peace?
