Leftist scum like Chavez and his comrades in South America and Africa - like Mugabe,m,and Obama's cousins in Kenya - still whine and whine and whine about colonialism.
I am sick and tired of hearing about it.
Let me remind them and their dupes: colonialism ended for most of South America more than 150 years ago and it ended for Africa - and India - more than 50 years ago.
In that time, nations like Israel have built themselves into full economies and vibrant democracies.
India has done it.
Only the whining leftist dominated former colonies still suck.
ERGO: the real problem isn't the colonial heritage; it's the socialism.
These former colonies would do better if they emulated the USA and Britain more and invited us into their economies more. As even Vietnam has been doing.
IOW: the real bogeyman was NEVER the big ol'bad USA hegemony.
It was and remains the left.
IF YOU WANT TO MAKE POVERTY HISTORY, THEN YOU HAVE TO MAKE SOCIALISM HISTORY.
