For some reason hard to understand, Western public opinion find it appealing to blame multinational corporations and foreign vested interests for the tragedies of the developing countries. It is as if this public opinion not even considers that those local governments must be made accountable, and that their primary role should be to take care of their citizens (not taking advantage of them).
This perspective drastically changes when someone comes to live and work in poor countries, and they realise that the commonplaces are often not true.
Western media could indeed portrait another image of these situations, and demand a better response from local Governments to the pain and sufferings of their people, instead of repeatedly pointing at rich countries as the source of all evil.
