  •  Your point being...what??? (0+ / 0-)

    Most post-colonial states (as in much of So America and Africa) were set up at independence to continue operating as colonial fiefdoms.  The key to that was in setting up a strong man, an enforcer, who would keep his own people down, and honour the economic interests of his patrons who in turn would turn a blind eye as he lined his pockets.

    The logic for your statement (being devoid of any context) seems to reinforce the racist assertion that the Negro was too inferior to feel any appreciation of sophisticated moral concepts like the common good, which, of course, the white ruler never fails to do.

    BTW, I almost puked when I read your ignorant little comment.  cheers
