The conspiracy against Africa

I came across this article by Gerald Caplan:

Africa is a mess and it's not going to get better any time soon. That's the awful truth that's so hard to face — or to state publicly — for those of us who have had a long, intimate relationship with the continent.

Mine has lasted for almost 45 years. But from the very start, my experiences in Africa began conflicting with my hopes, indicating trouble afoot, foretelling that our utopian dreams were going to lead to crushing disappointments. Of course, we should have known what the entire 20th century taught: that all utopian dreams fail, not least those wrapped in progressive rhetoric.

The whole article is here

Question is whether Africa is really a mess...

Africa is a mess. No doubt about that. The question is why? And by the way, I detest the patronising tone of so-called Africa experts, "those [almost universally non-African] who have had a long, intimate relationship with the continent" and who seek to paint poverty, famine, disease, corruption and genocide as uniquely African experiences, with causes that are nestled in the African mindset and far removed from history, the distortions of global trade, the imposition of alien mores and values.

It is as if we should be grateful for the "forty thousand branches of international aid agencies now operate throughout Africa" who come bearing gifts from the comfort of air-conditioned SUVs. How come none of these NGOs are run by Africans? Is it because Africans are not interested in saving the continent? Or is it more likely that international aid is a global business which primarily benefits Westerners? A chance to make token gestures to alleviate guilt while enjoying a luxurious free holiday in an exotic location.

A few statistics: After Western-imposed liberalisation in the late 1980s, Kenya went from 562 textile mills in the mid 1980s to only 6 in 1993 with the consequent loss of 70,000 jobs. Where the leather and footwear industry used to employ 140,000 the policy rendered nearly 100,000 jobless and reduced the number of tanneries from 24 to only 4 operating at 30% capacity.

But I guess the West would prefer to blame corruption, tribalism and the uniquely African "Big Man" (all of which we have had more than our fair share, it has to be said) rather than face up to the possibility that our penury is also caused by the machinations of others outside the continent, a few with good intentions, but most just out to rob us of our natural wealth.

PS.
Sorry for the long comment but it is a subject I feel strongly about.

Hello All. To future readers of this comment, rejoice! For here, finally, is the truth, plain and simple.

There is, indeed a conspiracy against africa, in many ways than one. I've been studying it my entire life. Who are the perpetrators? The same conspirators behind the plot to subvert and overthrow humanity. We're not talking aliens and illuminati. No, we're talking social engineers, big business, big bankers, eugenicists of the Machiavellian creed, of the classical Greek school, of the Darwinian approach.

In short, it is not only against Africa, but the world; Africa just so happens to be the prime oyster to rape freely. Sort of a training school, as was the isle of Lesbos, the Victorian secret studies schools now in place in Latin America and Europe, etc, etc.

Before I become "bloviatory", as some might call others, I'd like to give a few key terms that you can type into google for a piece of this maniacle conspiracy.

U.N., U.S., Mossad, responsible for assassinating president of Rwanda, training, arming, funding terrorist orchestrators of genocide, arming the people with machetes and watching on the sideline the massacre

U.S, Belgium assassinate Angolan president

Research how the Anglo American establishment is basically responsible for training post colonial african leaders, educating financial strategists who would lead them to ruin, assassinating all those who sought to have sane fiscal, social, resource, and foreign policies, subverting the economic engines of every sub saharan country, stealing resources wholesale, need i go on? This is all openly admitted in regular African textbooks no less.

infowars.com will lead you into the truth, but only you can take yourself to that room, that frame of thought where you accept that yes, I happen to inhabit a Western nation, culture, ideology, but those who reign at the top, likely for hundreds of years, i.e. rothschilds, rockefellers, etc, and that yes, they are funding not only racist ideoms abroad, affecting foreign mayhem and misery, but domestic as well. Aren't your fortunes taking a turn for the worse, and aren't bankers, politicians and established monarchs/oligarchies to blame?
