Life could be pretty easy for most of the human race if they had the 
education, really internalized it, and fixed all of their broken 
cultural systems, including religion.  The first world doesn't make 
things clear enough to third world people and they don't understand how 
the magical-seeming first world works.  China and India seem to be the 
only ones that really get it, and even there is probably a tiny minority 
who are cranking out everything.

"Holy Fire" covers a lot of this.  The solution there was that only the 
valuable, straight-laced, no-self-destructiveness were able to be reborn 
through a cell-by-cell scrubbing / regeneration, making them teenagers 
again.
