The Reductive Seduction of Other People’s Problems
Courtney Martin

Your article is so interesting! I completely agree that many Americans go into foreign countries, with good intentions, but they have this idea in their heads that they are going to save a community or change everything. We must beware of what we attempt doing for others from different places around the worlds because one must understand the history and the culture deeply in order to take action. As you said, work WITH the people and not for the people. Additionally, let’s not forget all the domestic issues that need to be well addressed.
