The value of citizenship. How much more does a domestic poor count than the foreign? I did this calculation several ys ago. e.g. UK spends 7.6% of its GDP on means-tested benefits; it has less than 2% of people below the PL of $PPP3.2.
On the other hand, UK spends 0.34% of GDP on devt assistance (for ~2.5b people in the world below the same PL). Hence a domestic poor is worth almost 100,000 foreign poor. The same calculation for other countries => domestic poor is worth between 30,000 and 100,000 foreign poor.

In non-communist countries, the soccer club split was/is always working class vs. bourgeoisie (Roma/Lazio, Boca/River, Besiktas/Galatasay, Atletico/Real); under communism the split was Army/police (Partizan/Red Star, CSKA/Dinamo, Steaua/Dinamo) etc
I do not think that one should read books that are directly addressing current events. They are mostly written in haste w/the objective to make money. Nobody will remember them. There cannot be a serious analysis of something that is ongoing. For that one is better off w/Twitter.
