People use the term all the time, oblivious to the fact that it once meant something completely different. And "Third World," in its present sense, is used with zero consistency, sometimes applying to major economic powers so long as enough of their population is poor, and sometimes referring to governments that are themselves poor and weak. It's like if people still talked constantly about "Axis Powers," but sometimes it meant countries that speak German, and other times it meant countries that speak any Germanic language, and the terms were constantly being used in news articles, oblivious to the fact that neither sense was correct.
