These Are The World's Real 'Shitholes'... Literally

In many countries worldwide, there is still a chronic lack of toilets, driving people to defecate outdoors.

In fact, as Statista's Niall McCarthy notes, just under a billion people still practice open defecation across the globe and it's a problem that results in widespread disease and millions of deaths.

In 2015, the UN called for an end to open defecation by 2030 and some countries such as Vietnam have had considerable success eradicating it.

Others are still struggling, however, as the following map clearly illustrates.

You will find more statistics at Statista

According to the most recent World Bank data which is from 2015, 40 percent of people in India still defecate outdoors.

It is also common across Africa where the highest rates were recorded. Eritrea has the highest rate at 76 percent, followed by Niger (71 percent) and Chad (68 percent).

Colonies were always the way of the world in last 2000 years... City States or Ports along rivers/water ways are the standard of which to look.

- Detroit
- Chicago
- New York City
- San Francisco
- Seattle
- New Orleans
- St. Louis
- Route of Louis & Clark
- Mississippi & Missouri

What don't you get. Same is repeated on maps of former world Empires. Rivers & Waterways & Ports.

This article is fake news, has no historical context.

We might find a clue what these countries need if we compared the outdoor shitting map to a corruption index map. I've always said corruption bleeds a nation to death by a thousand cuts, but it hadn't occurred to me that one of the first things corruption diverts funding from is sewage systems. "I've got my John, Jack, you can shit out back."

Madagascar was supposed to be the Original Zion.  If we had sent Jews there, they could have been isolated to an island.  Further, "natives" would have dissipated Jews, since the natives would not have been good productive hosts easily milked.  How do you milk street shitters?  They are bad hosts.

Original "final solution" Hitler was putting off till end of war, might well have been to relocate Jews to Madagascar or Uganda.  This relocation was the dominant intellectual position of those days. (There was no final solution that involved State Murder - that is fantasy promulgated as a lie by the tribe.)

We can see now, that relocating Jews to Israel has been a disaster.  Actually, bankster powered Zion maneuvered the world into death spiral, to get what they wanted .... Israel.

A lack of statesmanship in past, and failure, has again put the world into cross hairs.

We don't want Jews to die (we are not evil like them), but relocating Jews to Uganda or Madagascar would be a good way to isolate and dissipate them.  Also, it is imperative they are stripped of their money power.

One of the main beaches of Mumbai, Juhu, has thousands of shitters every morning. They can't be dissuaded even with nearby (invariably filthy) public toilets. This is how man is supposed to shit, they feel. It's the women who long for toilets. They have to sneak out in darkness. Women all over India have all sorts of health issues from holding it in. It's a national problem and a big political issue. Modi has made toilets a main topic. And a lot of young women refuse offers of marriage that don't ensure a toilet.
