Three opinions on the hot mess of #WaitForMe South Africa, which is anxious to go Zimbabwe one better:
The main problems facing national entities in the African continent are corruption, corruption, corruption. Without a rule of law and robust property rights, no country can flourish.
All too soon South Africa will have begging bowls in the U.N. Or rather, a list of demands that “former colonials” had better meet. But those wicked colonials will be embroiled in their own troubles, many of them brought about by their imported African populations.
Not to worry. China – already buying up mineral rights throughout the continent – is waiting in the wings to pick up the pieces. Who needs to ‘own’ countries when one can simply strip them to the last yuan?
The end of this sad tale will be blood, death, and famine. However, the present instigators will get away, their pockets bulging.
