Freedom of movement.

The countries at the top have unfettered access to the developing countries while the they do not reciprocate the same.

I have come across articles written by Europeans living in other countries while calling themselves "stateless!". That is the epitome of the freedom of movement. But don't try it as an African. You risk being deported to any African country that the plane will first land.
