Disaster on the Benighted Continent

…One of the first political discussions I recall being witness to was the aftermath of the Congo carnage following the granting of independence to a lunatic by the name of Patrice Lumumba. The Belgians fled for their lives and the country collapsed into civil war, which continues today. Independent rule in Zambia and Tanzania was quickly followed by nationalization, the denial of property rights, and those economies quickly crumbling, but mountains of Western largesse poured in, most of which was stolen. Nobody was censured, of course, because the liberal socialists running Europe were on their knees saying sorry for being white.
