I look at the famine in Africa, and honestly, I'm done giving a damn. Why? I think we need to stop helping Africa because they REFUSE to help
themselves. They sit in their mud huts all day and bang out a kid every nine months, and don't make any effort to learn anything that would help them.
They just walk over to the Peace Corps tent 3 times a day and get their free food.
We've been sending them assistance constantly for decades. We send Peace Corps volunteers to teach them how to grow crops, build structures more
advanced than dirt and water, dig wells, domesticate animals, etc. and they STILL cannot take care of themselves. The only conclusion is a complete
unwillingness to learn.
We send UN troops to defend them against gangs and death squads, and they kill the UN troop for his iPod or his watch.
And you want ME to continue to care? You want me to feel bad for them? Look at every other nation on Earth, and you'll see it's only the African ones
that have not advanced beyond the stone age... actually, they havn't yet even advanced into
the stone age.
Africa had their chance. We tried to help, yet they refuse to put forth any effort to help themselves. Instead, they would rather starve to death on
some of the most fertile farm land on the planet.
I say we just sit back and let natural selection run it's course.
