I am appalled at the white supremacy shrieking from the Mugabe paragraph. Were the Africans, in what has been called the “Cradle of Civilization” starving idiots before the Great White Farmers took their land by force?
“Mugabe is a very good case in point. He whipped up national anger and hatred towards the land owning white minority (who happened to know how to run farms), and seized their land to redistribute to the people, in a great populist move which in the end unravelled the economy and farming industry and left the people in possession of land, but starving. “
We here in the U.S have forgotten entirely, within 2 generations, how to feed ourselves, and are ourselves captive to the corporate supply chain, and if we attempted a similar uprising, against the oligarchy, would either starve to death or be obliterated in a Walmart stampede in 3 weeks.
