Dead Aid and the Wonders of Technology and Liberty
If y'all are interested in why Africa is mired in poverty, this economist provides a great economic explanation for the poverty. While my interest in explaining Africa and exposing its greatness to others will focus on laws and politics, being able to understand economics (the study of the working of the means-ends principle in human affairs) only strengthens my understanding of the region and the wonderful people who inhabit it. Africans are truly the kindest, gentlest people on the entire planet.
In other news, this blog statement brought tears to my eyes. As the internet becomes available to more and more people, governments and the tyranny they represent will continue to struggle to be seen as legitimate. Without the internet and its ability to promote ideas unhindered by government censors and regulators, the people of the world would still have difficulties discovering why there is so much trouble in the world today. The revolution lives on. Don't Tread on Me!
